Lisa Bergant Koi's painting, Departure(hot orange), was one of 34 selected out of 465 artworks submitted to the St. Tammany Art Association's "52nd Annual National Juried Artists' Exhibition: The Summer Show" in Covington, Lousiana.
Juror William Fagaly, the Curator Emeritus for the New Orleans Museum of Art and the museum's former Francoise Billion Richardson Curator of African Art (retired), stated, "From my conscientious and careful deliberations, the resulting show is a grouping of works I found most compelling, the most accomplished, the most original and the best crafted. I hope the exhibition gives its viewers as much pleasure as it has me." She is honored to be included in this group. If interested, an image of the painting can be found at lisabergantkoi.com.
