Exhibit one of 3 at DU this spring

An exhibit of recent paintings by New Orleans native Ron Bechet will be on display through Feb. 26 at Dillard’s Art Gallery in Cook Center.

Other art events for the semester include a student show March 4-26 and a senior show April 8-30, featuring the works of Damien Hunter, according to Amy Bryan, gallery director.
Bechet’s opening reception was held Jan. 21 for the “Natural” collection, inspired by his interest in the historical cultural traditions about the history of the tree and the sacred land.
Bechet, an art professor at Xavier and pioneer of the Community Arts Program curriculum, grew up in the Gentilly area of New Orleans and spent time playing in the parks and trees around Dillard. He earned a master’s degree in fine arts from Yale.
Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call (504) 816-4853.
