COLLAGE PAINTINGS BY LADDY NORWOOD - coolspace
Laddy works in a variety of mediums but prefers gouache (an opaque watercolor) and collage on watercolor paper. Laddy shares about his artwork that "often ideas pop up as I work and I can try them out using pieces from the scrap piles of studies lying around my studio. Many times the pop up ideas are much more interesting than what I'd intended to do ! I find a mystery and excitement in this - almost as if the pieces are springing to life on their own !"

STORY WITHIN - coolspace
"Although informally trained, I’ve exhibited my paintings frequently at small local venues, events, and restaurants around Shreveport and Bossier. I would describe my art as Modern Mixed Media. Each work I create tells a story. Each painting takes many hours to complete, as it evolves- layer by layer. I think my paintings reflect the style, struggles, and life of a modern generation growing up in Shreveport."
- Ryan Whitmore, artist

4 AFTER 5 - coolspace
Shreveport, LA — The 4AFTER5 art collective consists of four designers pursuing their passion for illustration after hours. Sure, they love their day jobs as graphic designers, but they’ve also had a love for art in other forms since childhood – animation, painting, comics and more. Come see what is created once they’ve clocked out!
The participating artists are Brad Campbell, Travis Eck, Jeremy Johnson and Jeff Welborn, all current residents of the Shreveport-Bossier area. The group plans to showcase a side of art not often seen in galleries. While their work ranges from comic books and strips to pop art and is expressed in a variety of mediums, there is a cohesive spirit of fun, energy and wonder that comes to life in their chosen styles.
