January Canary Gallery Event
The Collective Conscience: "la portes du spirit"
Group Show at The CANARY Gallery
Featuring Heidi Domangue and Nicholas Ciglio
The CANARY Gallery is pleased to present new works from two very exciting new artists, Heidi Domangue and Nicholas Ciglio.
Heidi Domangue made her CANARY Gallery debut in the October 2008 group show "South of I-10. Artists Along Louisiana's Main Drag", showing her intaglio prints, and mixed media collage prints. Her work was often printed and silkscreened using hand crafted paper, and sewn by hand to create even deeper textures.
Her new works for this exhibit shows her creating more textural pieces, but adding a 9 piece hand tinted photo-collage to the mix. Also within the show is the striking large format stretched and woven painted fabric piece.
Nicholas Ciglio is making his first gallery appearance on Julia St. with his new series, which is a section of a larger series entitled "Blessed be the Reconstruction". This series is centered in creating blessings for the reconstruction on old Katrina flooded wood from gutted houses.
A filmmaker and educator from California, Ciglio moved to New Orleans in June of 2006 to focus is artistic intentions on social relevance in the wake of Katrina. His first public piece in New Orleans was the popular public mural of then recently passed, Kufaru Mouton, on Frenchmen Street entitled "Kufaru Katrina Mural". He is currently a featured artist at L'art Noir New Orleans on St. Claude and has been working as an art educator/filmmaker at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Charter School in the Lower Ninth Ward since November 2006.

The CANARY Gallery started accidently.
A year ago Whence: the studio decided it was time to merge with
another studio called Omnibus Creative. The marriage was necessary
for what was in store for 2009. Along with Dirty Coast Press,
the launch of our new project HumidBeings.com was going to make
the local scene even more exciting, yet take a great deal of work.
This merger created an umbrella brand for all our projects: The
Canary Collective. With this new brand came new team members and
a new space. It is this new space where the CANARY Gallery
In 2009 we have big plans. The launch of new projects, an expanded
Dirty Coast (new designs, new products, new designs and maybe a
new store), and more expansive shows and events at the gallery.
We thank everyone for your support in 2008 and into 2009. It will
prove to be a very interesting year.
