Art for Art' Sake exhibition openings: Simon Gunning and the Southern Louisiana Landscape and Maude Schuyler Clay: Mississippi History

Art for Art's Sake is an annual arts walk event in the downtown arts district. Admission is free, and includes cash bars and entertainment by DJ Ed Maxmillion.

Australian-born Simon Gunning moved to New Orleans in 1981 and began painting its neighborhood streets and later, the natural scenery of South Louisiana. This exhibition will highlight Gunning's mastery of the Southern Louisiana landscape, which he has been painting for over thirty years.

Maude Schuyler Clay is a fifth generation Mississippian who started her color portrait series Mississippi History in 1975.
