The George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts 2013 Scholarship Art Contest exhibition features fifteen finalists chosen from across Louisiana who were awarded college scholarships and art supplies. High school juniors and seniors were invited to create a work of art based on the theme “Louisiana’s Culinary Heritage,” representing our state's unique culinary heritage while honoring its festivals, dishes and local ingredients.
Relive the spirit of the races through photographs taken by local community members capturing the action and people of the event! AMoA’s 3rd Annual Louisiana Dragon Boat Races™ on the scenic Red River in May, 2013, featured more teams, food, elaborate costumes, and entertainment on and off the water than ever before. Photographs were selected by a guest photographer-juror, and cash awards were presented to winners in 3 categories -- Places, Action, and People.
Amusement parks, urban life, musicians, puppetry, and personal mandalas are the themes of these cast paper prints created from deeply carved wood blocks, inked directly to act as molds for hand-dyed paper pulp resulting in low-relief prints. Rich color embedded in its dimensional surface highlight the excitement and danger of urban life and whimsical performance with a sense of humor!
