'2nd Annual Gulf-South Regional'
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 4, 2009 from 6pm-8:30pm.
BECA gallery is thrilled to present the '2nd Annual Gulf-South Regional' contemporary art group exhibition at the gallery's home location at 527 St. Joseph Street, New Orleans, LA from April 4, 2009 - May 23, 2009. The purpose of the 'Gulf South Regional' exhibition is to discover and highlight some of the most innovative emerging Gulf South contemporary artists who are on the leading edge of new art + ideas, their current work and the ideas that are motivating their creative processes.
This newest exhibition installment features today's most engaging and thought-provoking works of sculpture, painting, drawing and mixed-media expressing the progressive, contemporary culture of the gulf-south region of the United States: TX, LA, MS, AL and FL.
BECA gallery would like to congratulate the following ten artists whose works have been selected for this '2nd Annual Gulf-South Regional' exhibition:
James Alexander - Deon Blackwell - Scott Finch - Mark Grote - Adam Hall - Marina del Rosario Huang - Christopher McNulty - Luke Sides - Brian Spolans - Anne Stagg
Please join us on Saturday, April 4, 2009 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at BECA gallery for the opening artists' reception to help us celebrate this talented group of emerging artists.
You'll also have the opportunity to support these emerging contemporary artists through acquisitions of the works on exhibition and possible future commissions of their work. The 1st installment in 2008 of this annual exhibition series was a huge success both at the gallery's physical space and online here. Many of those 1st exhibiting artists of the Gulf-South Regional series have since moved forward rapidly with new exhibition opportunities and acquisitions of their works both locally and nationally.
Every successfull artist began as a talented emerging artist and we think the newest 10 exhibiting artists in the Gulf-South series are most definitely worth a serious look! If you are currently outside of New Orleans and cannot visit our gallery space, please visit us online here where the entire exhibit will be available for online viewing beginning March 30, 2009.

NotFair è lieta di annunciare la personale di Alessandro Sarra.
Filo rosso della mostra Seven Days è una considerazione sulla diversa configurazione del tempo quando lo si tenta di materializzare.
Si può definire "tempo chiuso" il momento legato alla fase creativa dell'artista e "tempo aperto" il periodo legato alla vita dell'opera d'arte.
Il progetto trae ispirazione da un'esperienza specifica dell'artista, il quale ha voluto racchiudere artificialmente e categoricamente in sette giorni la creazione di sette dipinti (combustione di oppio su carta di alluminio). A sua volta tale delimitato processo ha spalancato una finestra spazio-temporale che ha dato origine a un libro d'artista (65 esemplari ognuno dei quali contiene un'emulsione che lo rende di fatto un pezzo unico).
A chiudere il cerchio della mostra e del tempo, a riunire quindi simbolicamente "tempo chiuso" (i quadri) e "tempo aperto" (libro), è l'installazione site-specific intitolata Scripta Volant Verba Manent"

"Movement" is a key concept when it comes to the Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925-1991). For the very first time in Norway, an exhibition devoted entirely to his works is being held at the Henie Onstad Art Centre. Early on in his career, Tinguely began experimenting with engines and electrical devices. This retrospective exhibition presents radio sculptures, apparatus you can cycle on, kinetic reliefs, machines that eject balls into the air and a number of "social events", involving self-destructing, mechanical sculptures that go up in smoke and fireworks.
