Patti Adams - Garden District Gallery
What a treat to talk to Patti Adams when she came in earlier this week. She lives in New Orleans (she's a flutist with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra) but she and her husband always spend August in Colorado, where she paints outdoors.
She talked about how New Orleans is changing with the post-Katrina renewal and incoming migrants from all over the country. But the unique spirit of the Big Easy lives on, in the Spanish architecture, the rich music (and food) and in its artists. Patti is the director of the new Garden District Gallery which will celebrate its Grand Opening September 26th - October 31st with an invitational exhibit of fourteen landscape painters who will work plein air in the historic district in the weeks leading up to the show. The opening reception will be on Saturday, September 26th from 6-8 p.m.
