Artists in Residence Event, June 23

Join The Roosevelt Hotel for the Artists in Residence Event, Wednesday, June 23 from 3 pm to 7 pm. The Event will take place in the grand lobby of the hotel. Featured artists this month include: Ronnie Cardwell is an avid photographer and thrives upon the ability to "be in the right place at the right time" in order to freeze one small part of time in his camera frame. His photographs reveal both the wonders of Mother Nature and the culture and excitement of the city. Ronnie has the profound talent to make this diversity tangible for all who view his photographs. His utilization of lighting and color bring life to his work and warmth to the viewer's heart. Mignon Faget designs original jewelry that is inspired by the natural and man-made landmarks of New Orleans and southern Louisiana. A fifth generation New Orleanian, Faget has flourished in the culture and traditions of her birthplace and her collections reflect this. "Every New Orleans Lady", so it's said, owns at least one piece of Mignon Faget jewelry, adornment as central to a lady's wardrobe in this city as a piece from Tiffany & Co. in New York." James Jensen burst onto the professional art scene at the age of 12 with his first commission from a local sophisticate. Experienced with all forms of art, James now glamorizes beautiful woman with his line of fabulous Glamour Trash Jewelry. Using old Disco Records and his own "secret" finishes, he has concocted the first truly new jewels in decades. Martin Welch is an Impressionist using energetic brushstrokes and bright colors. He grew up in the south and currently lives and works in New Orleans. Martin says he's just a southern boy at heart and paints the way he thinks, feels and remembers. His paintings are used in the new HBO series "Treme". For more information, call (504) 648-1200.
