Hemmerling Gallery of Southern Art, New Orleans

5.0
The focus of the gallery is black southern culture.

The Hemmerling Gallery of Southern Art features the art of the late folk

artist, Bill Hemmerling. It showcases his limited edition giclees as well

as originals that have come back on the market since his death. Bill did

not paint on canvas but instead painted on recycled materials such as old

doors, screens, tin, wood, etc. He mostly painted with house paint

painting famous people, musicians, spirituality, and his most famous

collection of an african american woman named Sweet Olive.

Also featured in the gallery is Kalle, Hemmerling's apprentice. He paints

in the same style, but mostly children. Very uplifting.

Kip Hayes also paints on recycled materials and paints many of his farm

life memories from his childhood.

Agnes St Amand grew up working on a farm and is self taught. She paints

women of strength mostly in oil.

Sonja Evans also paints black culture.

Come by to visit us at 733 Royal in the New Orleans French Quarter.
