artquotes.net this week Shreveport-based artist Bill Gingles is given quite a dose of respect:
"This month's fine artist profile is of the United States abstract artist painting in an expressionist style. His artist interview and contemporary paintings are now online."
Gingles: "At its core, my work is about the duality of existence: positive/negative, male/female, physical/spiritual and the dynamics that occur when they converge or mix like the spirituality of sex or the effects of time on people and things."
While his sales tend to be in Houston and New Orleans, many locals have pieces by Gingles because of the Montessori Art Auctions. He will again have pieces for sale at this year's Montessori benefit, he says.
Here's the book on the annual auction: "The Montessori School for Shreveport 33nd Annual Art Exhibition and Silent Auction will be held on Saturday, March 18th, and Sunday, March 19th, at the Shreveport Convention Hall. The theme this year is "Go Wild for the Child."
This event is the school's largest fundraiser. The money raised helps keep tuition within the reach of the average family in the Shreveport-Bossier area. Tickets can be purchased for $15 per person."
