Welcome to New Orleans Canvas Magazine Fall of 2019! This issue is special because it marks our 2nd Anniversary. Within it you will find profiles of five exceptionally talented artists as well a dynamic art dealer. All of whom live and work here in New Orleans.
Our Photo Editor, Pamela Reed, has once again proven herself to be invaluable to our team. Pamela provided the portraits for four of our artist’s profiles. We would also like to thank photographers Thomas Cole and Tyler Timian for providing portraits. Thomas graciously accepted the challenge of providing a self-portrait and Tyler gave us permission to use his beautiful black and white photos of Danny Delancey.
Our cover artist this Fall is Aron Belka. In the last five years, Aron has become well known for his oil paintings of figures, landscapes and abstracts. Aron’s talent guarantees his art career will continue to shine for many years to come.
Molly McGuire’s art adds an wonderfully fun and edgy article to this issue. We were blown away by the diversity of her talent as both a fine artist and world class musician.
We have also profiled two very important French Quarter artists in this issue: Danny Delancey and Mousie Clark. Both of whom have made successful careers by working outdoors in the French Quarter, yet work in completely different genres.
Thomas Cole is our only professional photographer featured in this issue. His work as a street photographer documenting contemporary New Orleans is creating quite a buzz.
We conclude this issue concludes with an insightful interview with art consultant, Randy Jackson. Randy is beloved in the New Orleans art scene by both artists and collectors, primarily because he focuses on promoting and selling the work of artists here in Louisiana and Mississippi.
