The Magnificent Seven - Galerie Gigi

The Magnificent Seven at Galerie Gigi, Saturday, September 5th at 6 p.m.

"The Magnificent 7 features New Orleans Artists who articulate figurative relations in their work", explains curator Terrence Sanders. "New Orleans has a strong tradition of draftsman who are rooted in the practice of drawing and painting. These young draftsman featured in this exhibition are the not so distant cousins of Dali, Van Gogh, Basquiat, and even Alex Katz." While the figure is a powerful tool for the artists, each piece articulates its message through a diverse range of techniques and processes. "New Orleans is fast growing into a Contemporary Art hub" explains Sanders, "but will never in my opinion lose it's influence on new painters that explore the representational aspects of the human figure."

The artists include Blaine Capone, Colin Meneghini, Anthony Carriere, Tony Nozero, Bruce Davenport, Steve Soltis and Chad Moore.
