special event with RAY EVANOFF

Composer and performer Ray Evanoff, newly resident in New Orleans, will be joining Coup d'Oeil Art Consortium Thursday, Nov. 3, 6:30pm to talk about his music and artistic practice, and their parallels to the art of Blaine Capone, whose show "The Whelming" is currently on display at the gallery. In their own way, both artists' work addresses issues of negativity, discomfort, and indirect thinking, and both of their practices revolve around a personally-established set of themes, materials, and subject matter which are investigated across the whole of their output. Please join us for an evening exploring the possibilities inherent in artistic practice, the commonalities between various mediums, and the positive side of negativity. The artist's talk will be followed by a question and answer session.
