Artist Wayne Amedee featured at the Diboll Art Gallery

Acclaimed local visual artist Wayne Amedee will exhibit his works in a show titled, “Renewal, New Morning,” beginning Thursday, Oct. 16, in the Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery, located on the fourth floor of the Monroe Library, on Loyola’s main campus.

There will also be an opening reception held in the gallery on that day, from 5 - 8 p.m.


“With dual themes of renewal and recovery, these works start out with the ‘renewal’ theme of psychological self healing utilizing the sea as a metaphor for its calming sense of self help,” said Amedee. “The theme ‘new morning’ continues as a segue from ‘renewal’ for a sense of a totally new day as experienced, once again, in nature. These two metaphors of nature are the theme of the works in an effort to continue in a post-Katrina world, to continue with great hope for our future, to not only rebuild ourselves psychologically but to start over again.”

Admission to the Diboll Art Gallery is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., and Sundays from noon - 6 p.m.
