Emerge Gallery
Opening Reception: CAC’s Art for Arts’ Sake, Saturday, October 5, 6pm – 9pm

This Emerge Exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Emerge Visual Arts Program is supported by the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation.

Artist’s Statement

Much of the vocabulary of movement—of exhalation and inspiration—reflects the capillary processes of trees. The fractal attenuation of trunks to twigs parallels the circulatory systems of humans and rivers. From above, the Mississippi delta resembles a tree. Histologies from the brain’s seat of sensory and motor control look like trees. Subways, highways, sewers, bile ducts and hepatic arteries branch and merge, circulate and drain. The flow is inexorable.

Gallery Hours
11am – 5pm,
Wednesday – Monday



We are located between Andrew Higgins Drive and St. Joseph Street in the New Orleans Warehouse Arts District, one block off of Lee Circle (and the Saint Charles streetcar line), and just steps from the National WWII Museum and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
