Welcome Our New Gallery Assistant !

Welcome to our New Team Member:
  Gallery Assistant Paul Wright

 Please join Coup d’oeil Art Consortium in welcoming Paul Wright as our newest team member. Paul is taking on the Gallery Assistant position as of Aug 3rd. Paul comes to us as a  New Orleans native, where he has had seven years experience in fine arts/design as a YA/YA and NOCCA  alumni which offered him ample opportunities to hone his skills in creating, practicing, and demonstrating art. As an artist and as a youth advocate during those past six years, he identified opportunities for improvement, made constructive suggestions for change, and helped brainstorm solutions.
Wright works predominantly in the medium of acrylic painting portraiture, but also exercises skill in sculpture and large-scale installations. NOCCA alumni, Wright also studied illustration at Parsons the New School for Design and received training at The Cow House Studios in Wexford, Ireland.  Exhibited spaces include The Guggenheim Museum Theater, George Rodrigue Gallery, The Contemporary Arts Center, and The 5 Press Gallery. He has also been recently announced Emerging Artists-in-Residence at The Joan Mitchel Center here in New Orleans.
In addition to his experience and exuberant personality, he has a solid educational foundation and a passion for art. He is extremely enthusiastic about the focus on New Orleans Contemporary art and welcomes the opportunity to contribute to our ongoing success at Coup d’oeil. Please feel free to stop by the gallery to meet our newest team member and exhibition “Summer City.” We are thrilled to have him on board!
