Southern Pop Surrealism: OPENING RECEPTION

Southern Pop Surrealism: Artwork from myself, Jeff Bertrand, Charles Bennett and Dustin Dirt! will on exhibit at Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center in New Orleans through August 16th.  Drop by for any number of independent films from all over the world in this gem of the city in it's 25th year.  You can have a seat seven days a week and meet the Director of Zeitgeist, Rene Broussard and his wonderful volunteers who make this exhibit possible.  Visit there website HERE for showtimes!

This first painting above was one of two live paintings we did on some scrap wood salvaged from New Orleans in the 9th Ward.  Here is what you missed at the OPENING reception this past weekend...

We wouldn't have survived the weekend without these Foxy Artist's Wives.  They made a great team and helped us not only install the exhibit but volunteered all night at the reception Saturday!

Mixed Media works by Jeff Bertrand
New works from Dustin Dirt!
Our curator, Myron (right) got a local artist to come by and do some body painting live at the show!
He's only been in NOLA for a few months, but my buddy Nick was the best guide ever, dragging me into the seedy parts of the city I really wanted to see.

It's awful neat to see our time lapse video on a big screen!

  1. Congratulations on a successful voyage, Brandt and Aurora. It looks like you saw the best parts of NOLA, and left some of the best parts of yourselves for them to enjoy.

    Your work is always inspiring, Brandt. I can't wait to see what's next.

  2. We plan for this to be a model for many other exhibits here in the south. I'm hoping to get a sponsor or two over the next few months to get us in some other venues!
