Artist-in-Residence Jamar Pierre’s first exhibit at Longue Vue closed September 3rd after a successful showing in the exhibit gallery.
Though a traveler of the world, J. Pierre is a son of New Orleans. Citizen of the World, Son of New Orleans, showcased 26 pieces created throughout J. Peirre’s international residencies, and included works created during his current residency at Longue Vue House and Gardens.
Collectors around the world have J. Pierre’s colorful work on their walls. With over twenty years of professional visual art experience, his portfolio encompasses corporate and private commissions, public murals, official posters, set design, album covers, and product advertising. He cannot help but create a tapestry of distinct parallels in his work, and is drawn to contrasts: rhythm and stillness, the natural and the urban, busy and calm. He lives and creates like art has saved his life, and paints with a weight of responsibility, projecting his voice to a worldwide community.
J. Pierre is currently the official New Orleans Tricentennial Artist, and is the Artist-in-Residence at Longue Vue House and Gardens. His next exhibit will open at Longue Vue on October 18th, 2018.
