Story / Comments
"The Jazz & Heritage Gallery welcomes 'Local To Global: A New Orleans Story,' an exhibition of works in various media presented by the nonprofit organization Artfully AWARE.

The exhibit opens with a reception on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The cellist Monica McIntyre will perform.

Artfully AWARE fosters 'sustainable empowerment through the arts.' It uses art for 'social improvement and emotional recovery of persons who have experienced traumatic events, disabilities or inadequate living conditions.'

The paintings, photography and poetry in the exhibit focus on New Orleans themes - some contemporary, some historical, all commenting on cultural rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Artists featured in the exhibit include: Jamar Pierre, Christine Dominique Bagneris, Martin Benson, Robert Johnson, Clara Diaz, Hilary Wallis and Dane Verret."
