Yclosky, LA, G.Yerger: Artspace exhibit opens Fri, Feb 8, 5 - 8 pm, a photo by trudeau on Flickr.
Reclusive New Orleans artists Leslie Addison and George Yerger spend much of their time trekking across Louisiana and neighboring regions in pursuit of the telling detail of life.
Their Artspace Shreveport exhibit, "Southern Dialogues," offers romantic yet insightful images of life in the Deep South.
They've demonstrated award-winning expertise in capturing images. Both have work in the permanent collections of The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, the High Museum, Atlanta, and the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Repairing to their abode in Mid City, New Orleans, the pair intensify their images via paint, chemicals and other hand-wrought editing.
In addition to the exhibit, Artspace offers an artist talk on Thurs, Feb 7, 6 to 8 pm. "I have no idea what I'm going to say," admitted Addison in a recent phone call. " Talking about what we do is not my best quality. But we'll certainly answer questions."
