THIBODAUX – An art exhibition titled “New Sculpture,” featuring work by regional artist Brad Bourgoyne, will be showcased in the Ameen Art Gallery at Nicholls State University until Oct. 2. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
Born in Baton Rouge, Bourgoyne received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Louisiana State University in 1993 and a Master of Fine Arts from the Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut in 1995.
Originally trained in painting, and with a keen interest in the human figure, Bourgoyne works in traditional methods as well as new digital technologies to produce his three-dimensional work.
The exhibition includes work focusing on the human figure, ranging from painting and drawing to sculpture. Bourgoyne works with a variety of media, including graphite on paper, cast bronze and computer generated renderings.
Bourgoyne is scheduled to deliver a 45-minute lecture at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30, in 210 Talbot Hall on campus. A reception featuring the artist will follow the lecture in the Ameen Art Gallery, located in 200 Talbot Hall. Food and drink will be provided. The public is invited to attend both events.
Ameen Art Gallery is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
