The works of Christopher Brumfield, Scott Finch and Ross Jahnke are on exhibit at Baton Rouge Gallery through Dec. 28.
On 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, the gallery’s ARTiculate Artist Talk series will offer an intimate look at the inspirations, techniques and thoughts that led to the works featured in the gallery, 1515 Dalrymple Drive. The exhibition’s featured artists will be on hand to discuss their work and answer questions. The event is free and open to the public.
Brumfield makes his debut as a Baton Rouge Gallery artist member with his show, "So Many Blue Mondays," an exhibition that includes hundreds of handcrafted ceramic components. The work centers around the scale and fragility of the human body, stemming from the violence and sickness in the artist's life.
Brumfield’s work has been exhibited across the southeastern United States. Since 2014, he has served on the faculty at Baton Rouge Community College.
In his exhibition "Collages," Finch takes a drastic shift in his work, using the most personal images from his sketchbooks as inspiration for his assemblages.
Finch's work has been featured by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, the Critic's Choice Exhibition at the Dallas Visual Art Center and The Fleisher Art Challenge at the Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia. He has taught at Southeastern Louisiana University, Baton Rouge Community College and the East Baton Rouge Parish School System and as the executive director of the Texas Sculpture Association. Finch currently serves as Capitol Park Museum's Special Projects Coordinator.
With his latest exhibition "The People in the Books," Jahnke returns his woodblock printmaking process. For this series of prints, Jahnke worked to translate ink and pencil drawings into woodcuts that retained the freshness and rawness of the drawing.
Jahnke currently serves as a Professor of Art at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux.
Gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free. For more information, call (225) 383-1470 or visit batonrougegallery.org.
