Allons se Mettre Dessus le Chemin

Oil on Canvas

18.5″ x 28″

“My work focuses on depicting the relevance of traditional communal and community building events such as the boucherie and the Courir de Mardi Gras. The majority of this focus has been on the “courir”, the traditional pre-Lenten celebration of the Prairie Cajuns of southwest Louisiana, an entire day of masked revelry with its roots in the ancient Roman Lupercalia and Saturnalia.”

Herb Roe was born and spent his childhood in the Appalachian regions of Southern Ohio and Northeastern Kentucky. In 1992 he received a scholarship to the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio and attended his freshman year there. In the summer of 1993 he met the Louisiana mural artist Robert Dafford. He subsequently apprenticed to and worked for Dafford for 15 years on mural projects throughout the Ohio and Mississippi River Valleys. As a Dafford Muralist, Roe specialized in large scale, long term historical mural projects, often connected with local Chambers of Commerce, Tourism Bureaus and Downtown Development Agencies. Many of these projects took between 5 and 10 years to complete, and ranged from 1 to 50 murals in each town. In 2007 Roe began to pursue a career as a fine artist, specializing in fine art oil paintings depicting the history and culture of his adopted home in South Louisiana’s Arcadian region.

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
