(Shreveport, LA) – THE ART OF THE GUITAR…nobody illustrates it in bolder “living color” than “The Master of the Telecaster,“ James Burton.  From vivid pink paisley to flaming red hot, Burton’s guitars and his unmistakable riffs and soft bending sounds have defined rock ‘n roll for more than six decades and have made him one of the world’s greatest musical legends.  So get ready to see Burton burn up the fret board because it’s gonna be a hot time in the city that art built this summer when Shreveport guitar legend, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and Grammy award winner James Burton opens his guitar collection to the public in a never-before-seen exhibition.  Additionally, area Guitar Collectors  bring their one of a kind Guitars for display.  Some are pure celebrity--autographed by stars like Mick Jagger--and others are delightfully “artistic” such as the mosaic tile Art Guitars or the Cigar Box Guitar that really plays!  The Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC) presents the two Exhibits as the “ART OF THE GUITAR,” opening, Friday June 2, 2017, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 pm p.m. at artspace Shreveport.

Artspace Artist Studio Exhibition

  • artspace

Even though most Artists seem to “live their work,” we all need balance in our lives—a separation between work and all the rest. An Artists’ studio is where the magic happens--the conjuring place for new Art.

During April Culture Crush, SRAC is giving several local artists the opportunity to create their own studio space in artspace to work and to demonstrate their art to the public.

Each Artist chosen has a unique style. One is a fiber artist and views the world in textured and deconstructed layers. Another, after working with Soundsuit Artist Nick Cave, is now creating sculptural and jewelry forms. And yet another paints whimsical red winged cows that remind her of her home in Puerto Rico. An Artist Studio is usually a private sanctum, but during April Culture Crush, the public gets a rare opportunity for a sneak peak. Don’t miss it!

Kathryn Usher
“Current pieces are an out-growth of my work with Nick Cave/AS IS. They are jolly textile sculptures and jewelry heaped in color with textures shooting out like neon blasts of Sweet Lucys, Kool-Aid pickles and yoga mat stacks.”

Eric Francis
Each and everyday is a gift. My artwork is an expression of these treasures. Treasures I find throughout my day.

Lisandra T. Di Liberto Brown
Painting for me is a way to tell a story. I use my brush as a tool to create works that reflect my feelings and my past and present to create paintings that inspire and excite people’s minds.

Sarah Joy Lewis
Sarah Joy Lewis paints rich, vibrantly colored portraits and still lifes using acrylic paint and mixed media, including gold leaf and screen printing.

James Marks
Marks uses twisted wire, pipe cleaners and shards of metal to build human figures as toys and art objects. His work ranges from the size of a button to 12 feet tall.

Robert Trudeau
Trudeau’s media include pen and paper, acrylic on canvas and melody and video. “Swanky Louisianians” are his usual subjects, says Trudeau with a grin.  
Sherry Tamburo
As a fiber artist, felt making has opened up a type of Alchemy for me, where the common magically transforms into a thing of grace and beauty.

The Art of Albert Walker

At the Central ARTSTATION

Albert Walker often had his eye to the sky when creating Art, whether it was to capture the almost invisible wing beat of a hummingbird or the sheer power and boldness of a B-52 Bomber. Walker painted anything that flew--owls, red birds, and mallard ducks and every airplane that soared into the wild blue yonder from the P40 War Hawk to the B-1B Bomber. He painted with detail, accuracy and the heart of a former Air Force pilot. That is what made Walker’s art so special to those who saw it on the wall behind a friend's desk, for sale at the Red River Revel Arts Festival, or documenting history at the Global Power Museum at Barksdale Air Force Base. Albert Walker's art will be celebrated at a retrospective opening at the Central Artstation at 801 Crockett St., at the corner of Common and Crockett in downtown Shreveport on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 beginning at 5:00 p.m. There will also be a BIG WEEKEND SALE of Albert Walker work Wednesday, March 1 through Saturday March 4.

Louisiana Landscapes Featuring the works of Mary Louise Porter Karen Schmidt

No other state in this United States can boast the unusual and varied landscapes that Louisiana celebrates. All one needs do is take to the road from our own piney hills and woods in the northwest corner of the state and begin the trek south to see fields of corn, soybean or cotton turn to dark cypress-shrouded bayous winding their way to grassy prairies, then wind-swept coastal marshes and finally to the gritty streets of inner city New Orleans. Whether urban and rural, there is no place like Louisiana, and Author John Kemp has enlisted 37 of the state’s best artists to all express “their place" on canvas in his latest book, "EXPRESSIONS OF PLACE: The Contemporary Louisiana Landscape." Kemp and two of the Northwest Louisiana artists featured in the book.

      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:
Shawn Barber Artist Talk
Shawn Barber Painting Workshop

There will be a whole lot of shaking going on in downtown Shreveport from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 20th. The Stan Lewis Festival is the headliner with live music from local and national artists, historic tunes played by musical archivist Chris Brown, a Record Ruckus Vinyl Shop in downtown artspace, a food truck court, one-of-a-kind Arts Market, and a chance to meet Stan “The Record Man” himself!  Plus a brand new twist has been added to this year's festival that will have you slip-sliding your way downtown.
