BAC's Emerging Gallery to present Frank Herbert

The Bossier Arts Council Emerging Artist Gallery is thrilled to announce an exhibition of artwork by regional artist Frank Herbert.  His show will feature his acrylic paintings.  His works will be on display throughout the month of October.

Herbert who received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech University and his Masters of Fine Arts from Colorado University currently teaches classes in American Sign Language at Longview High School. When asked about the upcoming exhibition he responded “The paintings in this show are the result of following those recurring visual impulses that come to me, often mixed from memories and daydreams. Some keep coming back until I make something with them -  snakes in my mother’s gardens, camp fires behind the levee, huge reptiles on Airline highway billboards, boats sharing the bayou with the alligators, fallen trees after the hurricanes, ferns growing out of brick walls, and an island of monkeys at the Audubon Zoo.”

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.
