Alan Flattmann and John Kemp -- Book Signing

posted Feb 24, 2014, 12:21 PM by Jeremy Burke

    Al Flattmann and John Kemp will be at Bay Books from 5:00-7:00 on Saturday, March 8th to sign their new book, An Artist's Vision of New Orleans

    With his evocative paintings of New Orleans, Alan Flattmann is one of the most renowned American pastel artists. The haunting images capture life around the city, from the soulful Vieux Carré to the stately Garden District to the mighty Mississippi. Cooks and customers contemplate the food in Galatoire’s kitchen; a waiter rests, exhausted, in a chair outside of Café Du Monde; a streetcar picks up passengers looking to escape the rain. For more than four decades, Flattmann has expressed the timeless charm, mysterious appeal, and friendly personalities of New Orleans.

    The Crescent City shines as never before through Flattmann’s vibrant pastels. In this collection, Flatman and essayist John Kemp bring together scenes from the many neighborhoods of the city to complement the well-known images of the French Quarter. Accompanying these magnificent portraits, landscapes, and urban visions, Kemp’s essays articulate Flattmann’s unique perspective and technique.
