Coq Rouge to Host ReStore Art Show
Continuing NOAHH’s commitment to the artists of New Orleans, the ReStore will be holding an art show in partnership with Coq Rouge Gallery at 905 Cadiz St. in New Orleans on Saturday, September 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The show will feature local artists using materials acquired from the ReStore to create new art works, most of which will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to NOAHH. Admission is free.
We are promoting a culture of creative reuse in the city,” said ReStore director Wesley Griffin. “This is as much about sustainability as it is about creativity. These works showcase not just innovative ways to use these materials, but also a spirit of renewal that is fundamental in New Orleans.
Artists from galleries on Royal and Magazine and from Jackson Square will be contributing works to the show, including Coq Rouge owner Patricia Low, Ally Burguieres, and NOAHH team member Martha Pearson. They will be using everything from window sashes to wrought iron chairs, from fence board to garden tools, in their works. The event will feature free food, a cash bar, and musical entertainment. Food will be provided by McClure’s Barbecue, Elizabeth’s, and more, and musical guests will include local musician Billy Franklin. Beverages will be provided by the Old New Orleans Rum Company.
