Diboll Gallery director to open new exhibit on Magazine Street during citywide art walk

October 5, 2012

Karoline Schleh, director of the Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery at Loyola University New Orleans, along with her creative partner Christopher Deris, will launch the new exhibit, “Bobbery,” with an opening reception during the annual citywide art walk, Art for Art’s Sake, on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 6 – 9 p.m. The reception will take place at Sibley Gallery, 3427 Magazine Street.

“Bobbery,” when literally translated, is defined as a hubbub or a brawl. The duo selected this name to describe the combination of aesthetics, skills and humor used to create their sculptural inventions and animated toy-like paintings, which nod to the early mechanics and beauty of Victorian arcade machines.

According to a review by Gambit Weekly, the “expo looks very domestic, with a dining room table set for dinner and Chippendale cabinets bristling with curiosities including Schleh’s drawings and modified Victorian graphics and such. All are very quiet until a crank or switch is flipped, and then they whirl and pirouette like a mechanical version of the Mad Hatter’s tea party.”
