The Ogden Museum of Southern Art names artists in Louisiana Contemporary
Announcement of winners on Whitney White Linen night. Sat. Aug. 4

NEW ORLEANS, LA-After an overwhelming response of nearly 200 artists submitting more than 600 works, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art/University of New Orleans is pleased to announce the artists whose work has been accepted into Louisiana Contemporary presented by Regions Bank, a statewide, juried exhibition.

The juror for Louisiana Contemporary is Rene Paul Barilleaux, Chief Curator/Curator of Art after 1945, McNay Art Museum In San Antonio, Texas.

About Louisiana Contemporary presented by Regions Bank, he says, "Increasingly, artists-no matter where they live and work-are part of the larger international picture, and this exhibition seeks to demonstrate how the state's artists offer their own unique contributions to the global scene."

"Louisiana has always maintained a vibrant and influential arts tradition. As a native of the state, I have remained engaged with this tradition since leaving in the late 1970s, initially to attend graduate school," says Barilleaux. "Exhibitions such as the Louisiana Contemporary... not only showcase the state's artists for the regional audience, (but also) these exhibitions are important in that they illustrate the vitality of Louisiana's visual arts beyond state lines."

Louisiana Contemporary presented by Regions Bank was started by the Ogden Museum to respond to the need to engage a contemporary audience that appreciates the vibrant visual culture of Louisiana and the role of New Orleans as a rising, international art market. For this exhibition, a total of 86 works were selected, with some artists having more than one work chosen. Up to $1,500 in awards will be presented to participating artists, including a $500 Best of Show cash award. Award winners will be announced on Whitney White Linen Night, Sat. Aug. 4, 2012. The exhibition will be on view through September 24, 2012.

"Louisiana Contemporary is an opportunity for artists who choose to live and work in the state of Louisiana," says William Andrews, Director of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. "By showing their work together, the museum helps tell their story and about what keeps them in this state, connected to each other and to the source of their work." Andrews also says such opportunities to exhibit are important to attracting artists to live and work in the state. "Artists bring vital energy and ideas to communities, wherever they choose to live."

In its inaugural year, this annual event promotes contemporary art practices in the state of Louisiana and provides exhibition space for the exposition of living artist's work. The exhibition also coincides with the celebration of the Bicentennial of Louisiana Statehood.
