More About Clyde Connell Exhibit

The Imperial Calcasieu Museum will host "CLYDE CONNELL" courtesy of the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum, University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the private collection of Dr. Sarah Jane Stephens. CLYDE CONNELL will open to the public on Thursday, September 12th in the Gibson-Barham Gallery with a reception 7-8 P.M. Admission FREE. Explore the iconic works by this legendary Louisiana artist.

Noted art critic Roberta Smith described Clyde Connell's source of inspiration: "Like O'Keefe, she drew inspiration from the region in which she lived. She used brown earth and red clay to color her drawings and sculptures, as well as bits of iron scrap that her son, Bryan, a cotton farmer, found in his fields. She had a mystical view of nature and described her drawings as transcriptions of its music, heard on the bayou." Connell died at the age of 97, having worked full-time as an artist since her sixties. Connell's work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC), the New Orleans Museum of Art, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the Austin Museum of Art.
