Baton Rouge Gallery New Members Show Tonight

With all the craziness I haven't yet mentioned the BRGallery's June new members show. The new members include good friend Leanne McClurg:

and new friend Marcus McCallister:

as well as Phyllis Lear (no photo). From the Press release:

"Phyllis Lear will be showing drawings and collages. The drawings are large, black and white pencil drawings of shadows cast through a window. They are grainy and ambiguous, quite in contrast to her collage work. She reveals her powerful realistic rendering amidst an array of found objects and abstract marks.
Marcus McAllister is an artist living in the dream of Paris. A Louisiana State University graduate, he remains anchored here in Louisiana, while he pursues his painting career in Paris. His complicated compositions rich with iconography are counterbalanced by a limited color palette of mostly complementary colors.
Leanne McClurg is a ceramicist who creates pottery and sculpture. All of her work deals with voluminous forms that show a definite sense of her process. Her cartoon-like animals look about quizzically questioning our perception of who is on display.
These artists are a welcomed addition to our community. We invite you to stop by and meet the artists at the opening reception Wednesday, June 1st, from 7-9 pm"
Hope to see you there.
