The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art will present painter Rolland Golden as its next Art Talk speaker on Thursday, October 19 from noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Lower Level Lecture Hall.
Rolland Golden’s career as a professional artist began in 1957. Known for his portrayals of the rural South including his native New Orleans French Quarter, Golden brings a certain sensitivity to his landscapes that only a Southern artist with long ties to the land can bring. He is a three-time recipient of the National Arts Club First Place Award, a two-time winner of the Thomas Hart Benton Purchase Award, winner of the Winslow Homer Memorial Award, and many others. He has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally, including a one-artist show that toured the Soviet Union in 1976 and 1977. His paintings appear in numerous private and public collections, including those of Columbia Pictures, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the National Arts Club, and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.
John R. Kemp’s book “The Journeys of a Southern Artist” features Golden’s work and will be available in the Museum Shop for purchase and signing by the artist immediately following Art Talk.
Art Talk, sponsored by West Quality Food Service, Inc., is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to bring a sack lunch. Desserts and beverages will be provided. For more information, call LRMA at 601-649-6374 or visit the website www.LRMA.org.
