Loyola at a Glance
Deris unveils new work this weekend at St. Claude art gallery
October 11, 2013
Loyola University New Orleans art and design instructor Christopher Deris will unveil new artwork this weekend at an opening reception for his new exhibit, “The Soul Silently Fidgets.” The reception is Saturday, Oct. 12 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Antenna Gallery, 3718 St. Claude Ave. in New Orleans.
Deris’ three-dimensional constructions often involve simple mechanical movements—fantastical creations that act as surrogates or metaphors for humanity. Each piece is an experiment in visually capturing a genuine feeling within the confines of a crafted environment.
A native of New Orleans, Deris received a bachelor’s degree from the Atlanta College of Art and a master’s from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has exhibited his work in solo and group shows across the U.S.
