“I was born in New Orleans, and was raised by my mom across the street from the St. Thomas Housing Projects. Growing up, I struggled in school with academics, but found that I excelled in music and the arts. In New Orleans, it’s easy to surround yourself with music and art of all kinds – whether it’s things that I learned in school, saw in museums and galleries, or would notice in the people and the space around me. It wasn’t until I was in my late thirties that I was diagnosed with dyslexia. Being dyslexic accounts for the way I look at things and I am able to interpret things – words, shapes, and meaning.  While dyslexia is considered a disability, I consider it a boost to my abilities, and feel blessed that I am able to see the world the way that I do.”

It is the last full week to see the work of @cornedbeefreuben on our walls. The public response to this show has been empowering, with women from all walks of life coming in to let us know that identify and appreciate this representation of the female form. We are living through a monumental time which we can see a shift in our patriarchal and misogynistic society.  The beautiful works of Courtney Lubin use bold colors to contour and highlight women’s natural curves and provide a renewed vision of the female body. Please, join us and take time with these works. #femalegaze #womenpower #femaleform #femaleartists #feministart #womanifesto #nolaartists #contemporarypainting #artsdistrictneworleans #brandneworleansartgallery
