Anachrony reigns on Julia Street

Mondo Anachrony -- I missed the importance of the spelling the first time I saw it. Ana + Chrony like anarchy (which is about governments) this is ana chrony -- about time and specifically the art and meanings of images in history.

New Orleans Artist Robin Durand has this exhibit at the GSL Art Projects gallery on Julia Street in the Arts District of New Orleans. "I see myself if a great conversation with history," he told the Art Voices. This painting explores the importance of corn as a communal images through in our art and history. You need to get by and see the exhibit this week.

Hope you enjoyed our detour to Julia Street this weekend. Tomorrow we get back to shopping on Magazine Street.

I think corn has played an important roll in history, and in it's Art form.

Nice painting.
