WHAT: The River and the Painter: Simon Gunning, New Orleans, the Mississippi River and its Bayous Book Signing
WHEN: Tuesday, December 6, 2016, 6 PM, during Art of Giving
WHERE: 925 Camp St. New Orleans, LA 70130
WHO: Simon Gunning, artist

On Tuesday, December 6, 2016, at 6 PM during the Art of Giving, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art's annual holiday market, artist Simon Gunning will be present to sign copies of his new book The River and the Painter: Simon Gunning, New Orleans, the Mississippi River and its Bayous. Produced in conjunction with the exhibition, Simon Gunning and the Southern Louisiana Landscape, on view at the Ogden until February 5, 2017, the book contains over 90 full-color plates of Gunning's paintings and sketches and includes an introductory essay and interview with the artist by author John M. Barry. This event is free and open to the public.

About the exhibition:

Australian-born Simon Gunning left his native country in the 1970s with plans to attend a graduate program in England for painting. On his way, he traveled through the United States and to New Orleans, where he was captivated by the city's urban landscape set amongst a lush backdrop of tropical flora and cypress swamps. Gunning moved to New Orleans in 1981 and began painting its neighborhood streets and later, the natural scenery of South Louisiana.

Gunning's paintings depict a range of local subject matter, such as the Creole cottage-lined streets of the city's historic neighborhoods, passing barges on the Mississippi River, and the serenity of two fishermen in the Honey Island Swamp. This exhibition highlights Gunning's mastery of the Southern Louisiana landscape, which he has been painting for over thirty years.

WHAT: Mississippi History Book Signing
WHEN: Sunday, December 11, 4 PM
WHERE: 925 Camp St. New Orleans, LA 70130

The event is free to Ogden members, Photo Alliance members and PhotoNOLA badge holders, and free with purchase of museum admission.

About the exhibition:
Mississippi History is the culmination of over 30 years of photographic exploration in color portraiture by Maude Schuyler Clay. These portraits capture the cast of characters in Clay's everyday world, including family, friends and strangers. Together these portraits tell not only the photographer's personal history, but also the history of Mississippi in the late 20th century.

On Thursday, December 15, at 6 PM author Tory Gilbert will be present at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art during Ogden After Hours to sign copies of his book On the Coast: Mississippi Tales and Recipes; the book was illustrated by Billy Solitario. This collection of recipes from local chefs, and essays showing the intimate relationship between people, industry, and environment provides a compelling portrait of one of the Gulf Coast's most dynamic regions. An avid sailor, author Troy Gilbert grew up visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast on weekends and attended St. Stanislaus in Bay St. Louis. As an adult, he began sailing the coast and exploring the Gulf Islands and has written stories about these waters for many publications, including Sailing World, BoatUS, Mississippi Magazine, and Southern Boating. Raised in Gautier, illustrator Billy Solitario began sailing and sketching scenes of the Gulf islands at a young age. He earned his BFA from the University of South Florida and his MFA in painting from Tulane University after receiving the prestigious Gwendolyn Ozol Scholarship.
