Angela Gregory: Portraits & Process

Join the West Baton Rouge Museum as we celebrate the second in an exhibit series titled Angela Gregory: Portraits & Process. 

Guest curated by Elizabeth Chubbuck Weinstein, the project marks the most comprehensive look at the artist’s art and life to date.  Angela Gregory, referred to as the Doyenne of Louisiana Sculpture (1903-1990), is best known for her many architectural commissions made for important buildings such as the Louisiana State Capitol, and several monuments, one of them in Port Allen.  Yet, she also held an abiding interest in portraiture. Over the course of her career, she sculpted over one-hundred likenesses of people and was among the earliest twentieth-century artists to portray African Americans with dignity.  On view are plaster maquettes, models, molds, and finished bronzes as well as drawings selected from private collections and area museums, including the West Baton Rouge Historical Association’s collection. Rarely shown to the public, together these artworks demonstrate Angela Gregory’s sensitive handling of portraiture, technical skill, and art-making process. Angela Gregory: Portraits & Process will be on view through August 11th, 2024.
