You have seen the show. Now hear from the artist at the FREE artist talk at artspace.      Lisandra Di Liberto Brown moved to Shreveport from her small town of Hatillo in Puerto Rico for love. That is the sort of passion that is Lisandra Brown, and which is reflected in the brilliant reds, bold blues and opulent oranges that fill her canvasses.     Brown has spent several years building a portfolio that reveals a mixture of reality and fantasy. She may be best known for the red cows she paints with wings. They are a favorite subject for her be-cause the town   in which she grew up in Puerto Rico is a center for the country’s milk production. “We say that Hatillo has 38,000 people and 32,000 cows,” jokes Brown.  “I was homesick, so I started drawing cows,” said Brown. “I wanted to fly away home, so I gave my cows wings, but I was deeply, in love with my husband who’s home is here in Shreveport, so I made the cows red to reflect the passion that keeps me here,” added Lisandra.  Brown’s art is diverse, however, and ranges from still-life objects to fish that are endowed with legs similar to the wings on her cows and stylized human figures portraying women in fluid poses and muted hues. Her favorite piece is one called “The New Frida,” a self portrait that Brown loves be-cause to her it represents who she wants to be—one of the mot important and inspirational female artists of her time.  In 2014, Louisiana Life Magazine named Brown one of eight Louisianians of The Year as someone who has had great success in her own world. Brown was also recently chosen one of 13 regional artists whose work was exhibited as a part of The Latino Art Project in Little Rock, Arkansas to cele-brated Latino culture.   Brown didn’t start out as an artist but studied marketing at the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico. She does come from artistic roots, however. Her father is Peruvian and draws and other Ital-ian family members paint and sculpt in Peru. So she eventually gravitated toward the study of art and attended Escuela de Bellas Artes in Santana. She did not fully commit to her art until she moved to Shreveport after meeting and marrying her husband when the two were living and working on the island of St. Croix in the US. Virgin Islands.  Brown found support for her artwork from the Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC) and is a member of the Northwest Louisiana Artists’ Directory and has been named to the state’s roster of touring artists by the Louisiana Division of the Arts. She also participated in the Artists Entrepre-neurial Training Program offered by SRAC, which she says helped her gain knowledge about how to market her self as an artist.  “The Shreveport Regional Arts Council has done so much for me and for so many artists in North-west Louisiana,” said Brown. “I am excited about this show and ready for people to come to artspace and see the whimsical world of ‘Cow Circus.’ I have so much planned and think it will be like noth-ing anyone has seen in artspace before,” added Brown.

THE TATTOOED PORTRAITS SERIES: 12 YEAR RETROSPECTIVE

Shawn Barber’s body of work focuses primarily on painting, portraiture, and documenting contemporary tattoo culture. Barber’s intimate renditions of tattooed individuals balance both meticulous brush strokes and loose energy. Figurative in nature, these large paintings take on abstractions with explosive colors, meandering lines and paint dripping down the canvas. In ‘The Tattooed Portraits Series’, Shawn has created an homage and study of modern tattooing through painting portraits of tattooists and artists, tattooist’s at work, their tools and environments.

This exhibition will be paired with:

AS IS by Nick Cave Performance

#NickCaveBlanketsShreveport 
Nick Cave, the most popular, most collected, most innovative Artist in the World – is coming to Shreveport! An internationally renowned Artist, Sculptor, Performer, and self-described “Messenger,” Cave is known for his elaborate, symbolic Sound Suits that are made to hide the human and expose the inner message of social consciousness.

Nick Cave’s work is featured in Museums, Galleries, and Private Collections all over the world including the Smithsonian, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Seattle Art Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum, and the Trapholt Museum in Denmark. Cave’s exhibitions, installations, and performative works span the globe including London, Paris, China, Seoul, Jerusalem, and Portugal. 

So why is Nick Cave coming to Shreveport? He has a “message” to share: Nick Cave wants this community to hear the voices of Shreveport Common - the important residents, many who live in the care of Social Service Organizations - Providence House, Mercy Center, VOA McAdoo and the Youth Programs at the VOA Lighthouse – along with the voices of the Artists who are imagining and creating this 9-block UNcommon Cultural development. Shreveport Common is founded on the principles of Authenticity, Creativity, Sustainability and Community – not planned as an Arts District, but a community of people who embrace creativity and individuality and seek to “stumble upon the fun.” 

Cave will first “blanket” Shreveport with elaborately beaded, woven, constructed blankets that symbolize the “hidden stories” of those who are not heard in our community. Then, in the Production, the community will “UNcover” the stories of the people who have been “UNseen” before now through theatre, dance, art, music, film, and sound installations in a Performative Production at the Municipal Auditorium on Sunday, March 20.

Local artists selected by Nick Cave to partner with him during this “Artists Residency” include Sherry Tamburo and Heather Beauvais – working with the Providence House to make beaded blankets and Raffia costumes, Luther Cox, Jr. the Production Choreographer, and Poetic X – Spoken Word Artist who was selected by the National Endowment for the Arts as Poet of the Month, April, 2011. Additionally, Karen La Beau is selected to partner with Cave and the VOA McAdoo, Jerry Davenport will lead the residency and making of blankets, spirit sticks and armature embellishments with the teens at the VOA Lighthouse, and Kathryn Usher will lead the making of 15 symbolic blankets representing the stories of the residents of Mercy Center, a program of the Philadelphia Center. The Production Director is Josh Porter of the Shreveport Regional Arts Council; Programmer is Nadine Charity, and Neighborhood Coordinator is Esther Kennedy, Shreveport Common Project Administrator.

Mark your calendars. Sunday March 20
Tickets will go on sale in October.

Standing at the corner of Texas and Common Streets, Stan’s Records spent the 1950s through 1980’s as a hub for musical culture in Shreveport/Bossier cities, but not everyone knows that “Uncle Stan” AKA Stan “The Record Man” Lewis represents one of the most significant figures in the history of Shreveport, Louisiana. Lewis turned a jukebox route and small record shop into a music empire by distributing and selling millions of records, issuing over one thousand releases on his own labels (Jewel, Paula & Ronn) and helped write songs that gained tremendous success. 

“Uncle Stan” will be turning 88 years “young” this year, and the Shreveport Regional Arts Council is inspired to produce an annual event that Tributes and Reminisces about the career and impact of STAN LEWIS - a local living legend and national icon in the music industry. The event “brings back” musicians who got their start at the hands of Stan, either because he co-wrote songs, recorded and published them, distributed them, and / or sold the records. With the help of the Lewis family, local music historian and DJ, Chris Brown, and Garland Jones, SRAC presents the second Stan – The Record Man – Tribute Fest.

The first incarnation of the festival happened in March of 2014 as part of the UNSCENE! series and featured a DJ panel, arts market, hands-on activities, live music performed by groups Stan produced and more!
