July Featured Artist: Ally Burguieres

Please forgive the wonkiness of the site today.  Spent most of the morning fixing a bug and will be reinstalling all widgets, etc. this afternoon.  Sometimes being a blogger isn’t so artsy. 😉

It is July, ya’ll and you know what that means??  Summer has officially arrived, there’s no doubt now.  In the spirit of the relaxed, fun loving feeling of summer, I’d like to introduce our July Featured Artist, New Orleans’ Ally Burguieres!

Fox in the Strawberry Fields by Ally Burguieres

Being a NOLA gal, it will come as no surprise that Ally’s work is full of color, humor, and joie de vivre!  From work that puts in a little dash of this and that, like the best Creole cuisine, in bold, vibrant colors reminiscent of the stained glass windows of New Orleans’ cathedrals, to fun and sketchy homages to pop culture.

Ally is a young artist whose work celebrates life and the things she loves best.  Gay-ron-TEEED to make you smile!

Want to see more of Ally Burguieres’ work?  Take a gander at her website and if you find yourself in New Orleans, don’t miss the chance to stop by her gallery on Royal Street!  And of course, head over to the Artsy Forager Facebook page to see Ally’s July cover and more of my faves in her album!
