LSU Spotlights Sculptures by Artist and New Orleans Native, Angela Gergory
LSU Museum of Art’s latest collection spotlight will focus on sculpture by Angela Gregory held in the museum’s permanent collection. New Orleans native Angela Gregory (1903–1990) decided to become a sculptor at age fourteen—an ambitious path for a woman in the early twentieth century.
Angela Gregory graduated from Newcomb College in 1925 with a degree in design and received a scholarship to study at Parson’s School of Fine and Applied Art in Paris the same year. Determined to study “stone cutting” with the greatest living sculptor, Gregory was the only American admitted to the atelier of Antoine Bourdelle, a protégé of Auguste Rodin.
Maquettes for this sculpture as well as the mold, maquette, and finished bronze sculpture for Gregory’s Plantation Madonna will provide insight into her studio practice and process. Collection Spotlight: Angela Gregory will be on view through October 18, 2018.
The Crossing Apartments, the premier apartments in Denham Springs, Louisiana, is inviting friends and neighbors to attend this unforgettable event!
