VOL. 04.17.2018 | WILLIAM MCLURE

ABOUT WILLIAM MCLURE



William McLure was born an artist. William’s kindergarten teacher recognized his talent and wrote his mother a note when William was 4 years old for her to recognize, support, encourage and nurture William in his creativity and said that one day he would be a famous artist. His talents have grown from there, to him now being a self-employed artist and interior designer. William graduated from The Southern Institute of Design, where he was active in the American Society of Interior Designers as a student. His artwork can evolve from realism, to drawings, to sketches, to abstract at any given moment, and many times being created in literal hours during long evenings at home.

Mills deconstructs the everyday , then surprises by uniting layers of rich oils to capture ethereal images that are both intensely personal and timeless.

VOL. 04.03.2018 | KEN TATE

ABOUT KEN TATE



Louisiana non-figurative artist Ken Tate’s art explores the more emotional aspects of the human condition. The impetus for the current work comes from the writings of Beats such as Kerouac and Ginsberg, the writing and short stories of Jorge Borges, the works of abstract expressionists Robert Motherwell, William de Kooning, John Chamberlain and David Smith, as well as the works of Robert Rauschenberg. Another influence is the art of cinema, especially in the framing and editing of film. But when Ken works in the studio, the art often has a “mind of its own”. Ken’s work can be seen at the following galleries below. His paintings have been featured in magazines such as “House Beautiful”, “Traditional Home”, “Coastal Living” and “New Orleans House & Home”. His work is in private collections in New Orleans, New York, Los Angeles, Tulsa, Nashville, Houston and Jackson, MS to name a few.
