Douglas Degges to give outdoor artist talk at Meadows Museum of Art
SHREVEPORT, LA – Shreveport native Douglas Degges, whose solo exhibition a squirrel from memory is on display at the Meadows Museum of Art at Centenary College of Louisiana, will deliver an artist talk followed by a closing reception for his exhibition on Friday, October 29, at 5:30 p.m. The artist talk will take place under Tent M on the north side of the museum.
A closing reception with light hors d’oeuvres served outside will follow the talk and the museum will be open for viewing inside. a squirrel from memory will close the following day, Saturday, October 30.
a squirrel from memory showcases a range of images in both realistic graphite drawings and abstract paintings in acrylic.
“The smaller works on paper are more literal and time-intensive translations of printed photographic images, mostly of the northern Louisiana landscape, fish, small game, rodents, and pests,” writes Degges in his artist statement. “These photographic images are digitally prepared, occasionally collaged, and present a far more articulated visual language than the paintings… I'm particularly interested in how the paintings undo the drawings and am thinking about how these disparate modes of inquiry might posit ‘the work’ somewhere in between the paintings and the drawings.”
