Connecting the Light

Contact: Karoline Schleh · · (504) 723-3088

Location: Collins C. Diboll Gallery, 4th Floor, Monroe Library

Exhibition runs until 11/25. Paintings and photographs by Erica Lambertson and Akasha Rabut. Erica and Akasha met in 2009 shortly after both artists found themselves living in New Orleans. They connected artistically through a mutual love and obsession for light and color. Through the years they have collaborated informally on many projects and taken a strong interest in each others work. The concept for this show came from a mutual admiration for each others work and an interest in further exploring the connection that happens naturally through an artistic friendship. Diboll Gallery hours: Mon- Sat 10-6pm
