Photographer to give virtual artist talk this week at Meadows Museum of Art

SHREVEPORT, LA — Photographer Tracy Longley-Cook will give a virtual artist talk related to her current exhibition at Centenary’s Meadows Museum of Art, Eating the Same Stone. The talk is scheduled for Wednesday, November 3, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

The talk is free and open to the public and registration is available at

Eating the Same Stone is an exploration of symbolic observances related to bereavement, usually by isolated and anonymous figures. The images are inspired by various cultural and religious mourning practices along with personal reflections on loss, memory, and the passage of time. The audience is asked to reflect and react to personal and communal loss in an effort to find solace, but the exhibition is rooted in an understanding of the reality that contemporary societies, particularly within western cultures, struggle with how to negotiate and process grief.

Eating the Same Stone opened at the Meadows on September 1 and runs through December 4. Examples of Longley-Cook’s photography are available on Instagram at
