Southeastern art gallery open for summer exhibitions
HAMMOND – The Contemporary Art Gallery at Southeastern Louisiana University will feature dual exhibitions during the summer.
The show will feature prints and paintings by California native Rosemary Goodell, along with paintings by Ann Nelson, an artist currently working in New Orleans. Visitors can also enjoy a ceramics exhibition with pieces from local and national artists, coupled with designs created on campus as part of the Southeastern Louisiana University Fine Art Collection.
Goodell, who studied at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston and received her degree in painting from the University of California, Berkeley, has worked under a Fulbright Memorial Fund Fellowship to study and travel in Japan. She has also received grants from the Louisiana Division of the Arts.
Nelson, a native of Minneapolis, is a recent graduate of Tulane University's Master of Fine Arts program. During her time in New Orleans, she has shown her work in a variety of area galleries.
The Contemporary Art Gallery summer hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The gallery is closed Friday through Sunday. For additional information, call Associate Professor and Gallery Director Dale Newkirk at (985) 549-5080.
