Art Rocks!

Art Rocks! is LPB’s weekly series, hosted by James Fox-Smith, publisher of Country Roads Magazine that explores the broad spectrum of art! The series spotlights artists, performance, culture, literature, history and the impact of art in our world. Art Rocks! features Louisiana stories as well as segments from across the country. Each week, the Louisiana Arts Calendar highlights current events throughout our state, and Louisiana Treasures – offering a glimpse of items, styles and themes that are unique to Louisiana. The series aims to capture your imagination, introduce you to new artists, and offer close-up views from communities around the country and our own backyard, places where art truly rocks!

Fridays at 8:30pm and encores Saturdays at 5:30pm

This week on LPB’s Art Rocks!, we meet Lake Charles painter John Martel, who tells us why he draws and paints the monsters and video game characters that fascinated him as a child. Hollywood came calling for some of Martel’s creations for the movie, American Ultra. Artist Michael Roque Collins shares how his work has evolved from realistic, to dreamscapes and now to abstract. Artisan Dale Chihuly has shattered the notion of what can be done with glass; we’ll see his installations at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Photographer Grace Natoli Sheldon is a best known for her commercial photographic work that graces the covers of popular magazines. We’ll show you how she stages food to make audiences hungry for more. Plus, in our Louisiana Treasures segment, we experience the Greek Revival splendor of Houmas House and its 38 acres of lush gardens. (311)
