NEW ORLEANS, LA - December 12, 2014

Galerie 1501 is pleased to present a group ex
hibition of new works featuring all Gallery artists. The “Seasoned en Vieux” exhibit will run from December 16, 2014 – January 10, 2015 with an invitation-only, opening reception on Friday, December 19th from 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. This exhibit is a part of the Galerie 1504 pop-up
series, that spotlights various collections of art for a limited time in alternative spaces.
“Seasoned en Vieux" or A Seasoned View” is a multi-faceted exhibit with a number of thought provoking themes that are meant to dispel the common thought of our society as a whole. One of the most prevalent of these themes being that individual talent does not simply dissipate with age, but rather it grows in wisdom and perspective as time passes. Just as this theme is meant to dispel these specific misconceptions in both the creative realm and general society, it is also intended as a caveat of positive change for senior citizens & their allies, to dispel the myth about the ones who are entering their encore years with panache!

This Galerie 1504 pop-up showcase will be located at 1501 Canal Street. HRI Properties has kindly donated this temporary exhibit space as a part of their mission to enhance the lives and sensibilities of their tenants, as well as, creatively enhance the current Canal Street
Renaissance process.

"Seasoned en Vieux” is made up of various artistic disciplines; ranging from photography, studio art quilts, sculptures, muralists, and wearable art. Seventy-five percent of the 31 artists featured are over the age of 60. This impressive representation of senior artists only exemplifies the thought that true artists never retire…they become more seasoned!
The exhibit will also feature pieces by New Orleans’ own, Terrence OsburneMichele Lambert, fiber artist Jacquelyn Hughes Mooney and renown artist Sheila Phipps. Many of these works are city inspired pieces that reflect the extraordinary history and traditions that have set the city of New Orleans apartfrom anywhere else in the world.




“Seasoned en Vieux” will run through January 10, 2015.
The artists will be present at the
opening reception Friday, December 19th from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday 1:00 – 4:00 p.m., and by appointment.
