The Bossier Arts Council Emerging Artist Gallery is thrilled to announce an exhibition of artwork by regional artist Neecee Blackwell. Her show “Random Acts of Artwork” will feature a variety of styles and subject matters. Her works will be on display throughout the month of August.
Blackwell is 3rd year Louisiana Tech University Fine Arts major who works in a variety of mediums including photography, oil, and charcoal. When asked about her work she responded “As long as I can remember, I have always drawn and painted. While drawing, I began to study light and its effects on my subjects. Light play and textures intrigue me and I try to render that which is pleasing to my eye. I attempt to recreate the visual beauty around us – nature, the human body, creatures. To me, the world is magnificent visual feast, beauty is everywhere. When I see this beauty, I attempt to capture it, appreciate it and revel in it. These are very creative and freeing moments for me. I hope my art will have the same affect on viewers.”
The Emerging Artist Gallery is a project of the Bossier Arts Council and is committed to promoting art work of regional artists. It is located in BAC headquarters at 630 Barksdale Blvd. right off of I-20. You can visit the gallery Tuesday-Saturday from 11:00am-6:00pm or by appointment.
