In the Grasp of Mourning Installation Extended

In the Grasp of Mourning

11 Dec In the Grasp of Mourning Installation Extended

Based on a strong opening and ongoing demand, it is the artist’s pleasure to announce the extension of “In the Grasp of Mourning” at Barrister’s Gallery New Orleans until the end of December 2015. Join us on 12/12/15 during the St. Claude Avenue Second Saturday Gallery Walk.

Artist Kristin Meyers presents a new installation at Barrister’s Gallery New Orleans. The installation, “In the Grasp of Mourning,” reinvents the space into an immersive experience. It continues the artist’s dialog with ritual while creating a new conversation with spacial relationships.

From the Artist
“In the grasp extends its reach with the threat of movement. Mourning tightly writhes, surrounded, demanding a recognition of life.”

About the Gallery
Since March 2007, Barrister’s Gallery has been located at 2331 St Claude Ave, at the spear point of the St. Claude Art District, and 10 minutes from The French Quarter. Although they still keep available a fine collection of ethnographic and outsider art, the Gallery’s emphasis is, as the New Orleans Underground Guide notes, “on monthly-featured contemporary exhibits in keeping with their focus on the eclectic and unorthodox.” Click Here to visit Barrister’s Gallery online.
