Shreveport artists Joe Bluhm and Adam Volker stand in front of one of the paintings in their show "Object" at artspace.
Two Shreveport digital artists open their first fine art show tonight at artspace in downtown Shreveport. The exhibit, “Object,” features mostly acrylic paintings by Joe Bluhm and Adam Volker. By day, the two are co-workers at Moonbot Studios. But outside of work, they’re finding an outlet on the canvas. Bluhm finds painting moves him in a different creative direction – that’s tangible.
Shreveport author and illustrator William Joyce will receive a prestigious media award Thursday that coincides with the premiere of his new animated feature film that will debut in Shreveport.
Joyce will receive a Christopher Award in New York. His book, "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore," will be recognized alongside other books, films, and television/cable shows that live up to the highest values of the human spirit, according to the Christophers.
A fine art photography exhibit opening Jan. 17 at artspace in Shreveport is akin to a love letter to the voluptuous woman. That’s how Mollie Corbett describes her third gallery show, "Dangerous Curves." It captures the beauty of eight, full-figured Shreveport-Bossier women through nude and semi-nude portraits. Corbett said she sees herself and many other women in this show.
“It’s odd and ironic because so many women are walking around with these dimensions, and yet they’re not being recognized as beautiful in the mainstream media.”
