Ruston Louisiana Art
It's easy to believe that your only vacation stop in Louisiana is New Orleans, but if you drive a little further north, you'll find an unforgettable experience. The painting courses at the Masur Museum range from a fun beginner's course entitled Bottles and Brushes to an initial still life taught by a professional artist. In these classes, children explore a variety of media and artistic disciplines, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, woodworking and more. The Kunsthaus offers a wide range of art courses for children and adults, as well as an extensive collection of books on the history of painting.
Trainer Jenny Ellerbe is self-taught and has received national recognition for her work. She has taught and led at Montessori school in Ruston for over 30 years and says: "I feel I have the best of both worlds. He graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 1979 and earned his bachelor's degree in art history from Louisiana State University in 2002 and a master's degree in education from the University of Arkansas.
After graduating from Texarkana, he studied art at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock and then Texas A & M University. During this time, his love of learning led him to a career as an art teacher in the department of commercial graphics at Louisiana Tech. A department head, impressed by Hinojosa's paintings and drawings, offered him the opportunity to teach commercial graphics, and he accepted the position. He earned his master's degree and taught at Louisiana Tech for the next 28 years and is considered an eternal student.
Here you can find Hinojosa's works in all media, including paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, posters, book covers and more. The book is a collection of his work from several institutional collections, including the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Texas A & M University, Louisiana Tech, the Louisiana Museum of Fine Arts, and Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, among many others.
The Masur Museum of Art offers a selection of art workshops and courses for adults throughout the year. The gallery also exhibits nationally recognized contemporary artists, who are considered by students and the community and from whom they can learn. An excellent relationship between students and teachers promotes the individual development of each student by providing a nourishing and engaging experience, building on the school's mission to create art and understanding for all.
Although photography is interesting because it appears experimental in a way that painting is not, one aspect of art is largely ignored. While decorative painting is more of a task and painting of the visual arts more personal, the creative process overlaps and informs each other.
Then, in the 1930s, Alberta Kinsey came here from New Orleans, painted magnolias, and I cleared out her room and put a few photos in and framed them to insert into my painting for the Peach Festival Show. This summer, while thinking about my upcoming exhibition, I took some of my couple paintings from Woodstock from my mother's house and sent them here.
Then I started to paint my childhood stories, which led me to my current work and then to the Peach Festival Show and the New Orleans Art Show. Previous exhibitions of Ms. Duet's work have included exhibitions at the Louisiana Museum of Fine Arts in Baton Rouge, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Louisiana State University. Her work has also been selected for publication in the Bicentennial History of Art in Louisiana, which is published by LSU Press, "Revealing the Forgotten City" and "Poverty at Point," which is published by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities at Poverty Point.
The exhibition is open to artists 18 years and older and focuses on the communities of Central Louisiana, or CenLa, which are defined here as: Baton Rouge, Bossier, Jefferson, Monroe, St. Charles, Lafayette, New Orleans, Shreveport - Lafayette and Vernon. The exhibition, which is the second time that regional artists from the Louisiana legislature have been invited to participate, is selected by the Louisiana Museum of Fine Arts, Louisiana State University and the University of Lafayette as a jury member.
Ruston is home to the Eddie G. Robinson Museum, home to the Louisiana Museum of Fine Arts and the Ruston Art Museum. The Dixie Theatre, originally the Astor Theatre, has been the main source of art in Rustons since it opened in 1925. In 1937, the Dixie Theatre Corporation of New Orleans took over the management of the theater and transformed the front lobby into a street - with a cash desk and public entrance. In the 1980s and 1990s, the city's citizens encouraged the use of the theater as local entertainment, led by James C. Howard.
Plans for a refurbishment of the theatre were drawn up and the funding by the Federal Foundation for the Arts was secured. In addition, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council, which manages the Louisiana Museum of Fine Arts and the Ruston Art Museum, as well as other local arts organizations, supported and helped DCA finance its annual Holiday Arts Tour. A refurbished Dixie Theatre opens its doors to the world and is a meeting point for the Ruston art scene and a central point in the city's cultural life.
