Mrs. M. Abrams: Dapper Bruce Lafitte

March 28, 2017 @ 8:00 am - June 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Dapper Bruce Lafitte’s latest exhibit, Mrs. M. Abrams, is a departure for the artist in both style and content. His compositions are more abstract and vibrant in color, differing from the folk art usually prevalent in his work. This exhibit presents a bird’s eye view of the physical and psychological effects of Hurricane Katrina on the city of New Orleans. Though hesitant to revisit his personal experiences with Katrina, Lafitte found that the creation of these pieces helped to release and make sense of the complicated emotions that come with surviving such a disaster. He says “I feel differently about Katrina now, I don’t feel the anger anymore.” Making this collection even more personal, the title of Mrs. M. Abrams is an homage to the artist’s grandmother; Lafitte characterizes her love and support as crucial elements on his journey to discover his own artistic identity.
