The R.W. Norton Art Gallery was honored to host Heart of the Matter: A Celebration of the Essential in Everyday Life, the first solo exhibit of James Michalopoulos’s work to be held in the Ark-La-Tex. Having an artist of Mr. Michalopoulos’s caliber at the museum is always a thrill for us, but it is especially exciting to introduce him to north Louisiana. While we love showcasing artists from around the world, those from our own backyard and who can make as much of a splash as Mr. Michalopoulos does, are truly special. His heavy impasto and bold color combined with his portrayal of authentic Louisiana architecture, street corners, and musicians will have you humming a Dr. John song in no time.
