Zack on WBOK 1230AM - NOLA

I'll be saying some words with Lee on WBOK AM 1230 this Thursday, at around 9:30. I'll be talking about the CANARY Gallery and our opening this weekend of Blake Haney's new photography show, "Wonder Around"

Zack Smith Portrait(s) - Closing Show Tonight

Tonight at The CANARY Gallery - 329 Julia St from 6-8p we will have a closing viewing of my recent show of portraits.

New Photographs by Zack Smith

Closing Reception:
Tuesday September 1st 6p-8p

CANARY Gallery is giving the New Orleans public one more opportunity to view Zack Smith's newest portrait show, Portrait(s) - on Tuesday, September 1st from 6pm-8pm. Cocktails will be served.

From the streets and swamps of Louisiana, to the cozy backstages of the Voodoo Music Experience, Zack Smith creates comfortable confines that elevate his unique style of portraiture. There is a subtle, yet strong connection between subject and photographer, a statement that Smith holds highest. Whether the background is a custom backdrop by Flavor Paper, a vine laden swamp, or street corner, Smith's subjects connect with them and in turn, the viewer.

Portrait(s) will feature a selection of 4x5 shot portraits of artists that played the Preservation Hall Tent at the 2008 Voodoo Music Experience, and some of his recently shot portraits. Deacon John, Alec Ounsworth (of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Ben Jaffe (Preservation Hall), and The Noisician Coalition are just a few of the new images you will see at the opening.

Zack Smith is a photographer, musician, and educator living and creating in New Orleans. He is the curator of CANARY Gallery in New Orleans, LA.
