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.

Excellent experience and story. The owner is a treat. A New Orleans treasure.
The perfect little gallery representing just a few artists. We were drawn in by the art. We went to the door sometime before 11 and the sign said they would open at noon. As we were turning around a cute voice shouted "I'm right here"! Eileen was filling in for Carol and had driven in to open the gallery. We waited while she turned the lights on and got opened up. What a treat. She knew/knows the artists personally and much about their lives, inspiration etc. I just loved the art and the subjects chosen by the artists. I also was intrigued by the use of found material as canvases. A thunderstorm came thru so we had an excuse to linger In the gallery speaking to Eileen. She pointed out the significance of certain subjects and tied some of the art to events in the artists lives. We left w only a small post card but hope to purchase something way more significant in the future. Perfect stop on Royal Street. Oh and Eileen gave great tips for visiting some other great restaurants and sites.
