DescriptionThe LSU Student Union Art Gallery is pleased to announce its current exhibit, Louisiana State of Mind, featuring selected works from notable artists that are proud to call the state home. This show is currently on display and will run through Friday, December 19, 2014 in the LSU Student Union Art Gallery.

People who don’t live in Louisiana are fascinated by what they’ve heard and envision a particular, often peculiar, image of the state and those who reside here. The artists of Louisiana State of Mind see how the living creatures and many waterways enhance daily landscapes. They record how the land and people help define who Louisianian’s are. Yet, many of the images you will see in this exhibit contain a sense of wariness. We have all encountered how quickly outside forces can shape landscapes including the effects of such events as Hurricane Katrina, the BP oil spill, as well as continuing coastal errosion. These outside forces may continue to contaminate the landscape and enviornment but even with these concerns, these artists and their work are strongly connected to Louisiana.

Featured artwork includes selections from the following Louisiana artists: Mary Ann Caffery, Mary Lee Eggart, Rhea Gary, Diego Larguia, Thomas Neff and Robert Warrens. The works chosen for this exhibit include oil paintings, watercolors, digital prints and drawings that embody the beauty in Louisiana’s natural and manmade landscapes as well as the people who reside here.

The LSU Student Art Gallery will feature special incentives for students who visit the art gallery throughout the academic year. Receive a FREE Art Gallery mugwhen you visit all three Art Gallery exhibits in one academic year. You must be an LSU student to participate in this promotion (LSU IDs will be scanned at the door).
