Baton Rouge Gallery, a BREC facility, will feature the latest works of artist members Amy James, Linda Jeffers and Brian Kelly during its August exhibition.
The exhibition will be on display at the gallery, 1515 Dalrymple Drive, from Aug. 2-27. There is no admission charge during normal gallery hours, which are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
An opening reception will be held at the gallery from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Aug. 5. It is free and open to the public.
An ARTiculate Artist Talk, offering a look at the inspirations, techniques and thoughts that led to the works featured in the gallery, begins at 4 p.m. on Aug. 9. All three exhibiting artists will discuss their work and answer questions from those in attendance.
Visitors to the exhibition will be treated to James’ black and white photography, Jeffers’ witty assemblages and Kelly’s naturalistic prints.
In “Kin,” James documents her family’s life cycle as she watches her father lose his faculties to Parkinson’s disease while their family expands. The collection of black-and-white photographs spans five generations of her family from great-grandchildren to her oldest family member, a 90-year-old great-great-great aunt.
James has been an artist member since 2003. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from LSU with a minor in photography.
Jeffers reformulates familiar myths and legends using wordplay and whimsy to turn common conceptions on their head in “What Ifs.” Over the past three years, she has created assemblages constructed from repurposed found objects to create alternate versions of familiar stories and art.
Jeffers became an artist member in 1993. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees at LSU.
Kelly draws from travel and personal exploration in “Migrations,” a collection of prints in an assortment of figures and shapes that move through a structured yet irrational world.
Kelly, an artist member since 1996, earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from Northern Illinois University and his Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from LSU.
