Local watercolorist Peter Briant celebrated “The Last Hoorah” a 40-year retrospective, at the New Orleans Athletic Club on Dec. 5. Friends, family and collectors alike feted Briant throughout the evening, admiring his life’s work. After studying architecture at Tulane University, Briant received a degree in fine arts from the University of Southern Mississippi. Combining his two passions, Peter has spent his life capturing architecture and landscapes in his watercolor paintings.
