JUNE first friday

Was a huge success!!! Richard Hebert’s show, La Vie Nouvelle, which is cajun for A new life is still up in the gallery. He uses found wood from the April 27th tornado to make sculptures of happiness, stability and growth. Richard also showcases his photography skills in the photos that surround the sculptures. Having lived through Hurricane Katrina, the sudden loss of his father and the April 27th tornado, Richard drew on his heritage to find strength in rebuilding. In the spirit of community and togetherness Richard really wanted a night where people could start to heal.
Without hesitation I thought to myself, I have to get a brass band to play this place! Nothing says rebuilding like a brass band from New Orleans, so that’s what we did. Brice Miller and the Mahogany Brass Band came up from Nola to play our first friday. In true New Orleans fashion we second lined, drank, talked about destruction from Hurricane Katrina to The April 27 tornado but most of all we laughed and danced and focused on rebuilding and the good times ahead! We gave the tornado one hell of a Jazz funeral!! (A Dirge for those of you more eduacated folks!)
