Amuse Bouche

at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

An amuse-bouche is a small tasting of what is offered on the menu, often served as an hors d’œuvre or appetizer. With this culinary tradition in mind, this exhibition features collage work by participants of Kolaj Fest New Orleans. Twenty-five artists from across North America offer small works for your viewing and collecting pleasure. As a whole, the exhibition is a small tasting of the International Collage Community. The exhibition was juried by Christy Wood, the director of LeMieux Galleries, and Kolaj Magazine Editor Ric Kasini Kadour and is an official exhibition of Kolaj Fest New Orleans, an annual, multi-day festival & symposium about contemporary collage and its role in art, culture, and society, 12-16 June 2024.
