small works and big times at coup

Coup opened it's current exhibits on Saturday, March 2.

In SAMANTHA FOSTER's New Orleans debut "Remembrance" she juxtaposes sensuously mysterious black and white photographs with meticulously constructed architectural supports and frames.

In ELIOT BROWN's "Selections from ‘ The Book of Hats: A Collection of Extremely Short Illustrated Poems ’ " he plays with words and quirky figures to poke fun at human perception.

Since the shows' openings, the gallery has enjoyed a healthy volume of enthusiastic viewers and collectors! The beautiful New Orleans spring days have brought Coup's friends in the film industry out in full force, and our wonderful, culturally diverse neighborhood has become a destination for the high season tourists. It's encouraging to see how word-of-mouth still functions as quite an effective social networking medium.
