You are Welcome to Vieux...








If Jazz Was a Color, What Color Would it Be?
By Jacquelyn Hughes Mooney©97
 
 
Blue as in 'mo better?
Cobalt, azure teal,
Sapphired, indigoed midnight sky?

If jazz was a color..it'll fire up red hot!
Cinnamon salsa, mustard tinged lavender lace.
Improvising multiple patterned hues & blues..

RHYTHMS!!

Effortless blacks & whites!
Shading elegant brocades in smoky velvet
Coltraned…

Billie, Sarah, Duke.
Fly a way Bird!
Groove on Wash- ing- ton!
(No Kenny G here)!

Miles awake,
Miles high!
Miles wide

Colors erupting like a Cannonball!
If jazz was a color, the color would be what the eyes see...
Blue! As in mo betta…
Yeah

If Jazz Was a Color Exhibition Coming Soon


Our exhibition "If Jazz Was a Color will be opening shotly. It'll run the duration of Carnival season until March 5th featuring New Orleans new, emerging and established artists. We're locate at 1501 Canal Street in the old historic, Texaco building that is part of HRI Properties Bienville Basin Development.


The jazz part of the exhibition is purely a metaphor.  If sound/music is a vibration as well as color, if you switch the genre what color would jazz be?  The artists are to allowed to express themselves in whatever dirction that vibration takes them.

Moon Reimagined ~2016



Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot. -- George C. Fraser

Times they be a'changin....

Dear Past: Thank you for the lessons. 

Dear Future: I'm ready".~  George Fraser

Here is one of our Young Creatives who call herself Journey.  Her "Talking Drum" which are recycled oil drums that will be used in the new Bienville-Basin Development as trash receptacles shows the youthful vibrancy of her eye.

The gallery is also showcasing a couple of her other paintings in the "Da Fleet! Where the Young Creatives Are" at Rhythm & Hues @1501 through October 31st.

Reception tentatively scheduled for Oct 3rd.






 The Artist: Journey
 
 
 
Andrew's piece simply does that..make you smile.  Native to Venezuela now currently living in Baton Rouge, La his charming and whimsica painting kinda reminds you of a cross between Dr. Suess & Sponge Bob Squarepants!
