Artist Stephan Wanger of Galeria Alegria
Added August 18th, 2010
Stephan Wanger of Galeria Alegria discusses his new exhibit “A Million Greetings from New Orleans.” Stephán has been working on the exhibit: “A Million Greetings” since the summer of 2006. He started of with the planters, but realized quickly the limitations of beads. Mosaics are indeed a cumbersome art form to create. For the exhibit the goal is to have 25 large pieces averaging 40,000 beads on each piece ready by August 29, 2010 in order to tour Europe with the collection sometime in the spring or summer of 2011. The entire exhibit will consist of over 50 pieces promoting activities, people, music or architecture that are unique to New Orleans and Louisiana.
Galeria Alegria is open Tuesdays through Sundays 10:00 am to 7:00pm. It is located at 1914 Magazine St.
