Jonathan Ferrara gallery announces Post Hurricane Katrina
/ Artists in plans

(New Orleans, Louisiana): October 15, 2005

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Jonathan Ferrara gallery announces its plans for the future. The gallery has temporarily leased its space at 841 Carondelet Street to a roofing company and is relocating to the home of owner Jonathan Ferrara in the historic Fauborg - Delachaise area of New Orleans. The gallery suffered minor damage, but all of the housed artworks were unaffected by the storm. However; several of the gallery artists have suffered tremendous losses of their homes, studios and artworks. As the city rebuilds and begins to try and shape its future, so does Jonathan Ferrara gallery.

Jonathan Ferrara gallery is proud to announce its plans for the next year or two. JFG will take the show on the road by presenting /Artists in exhibitions of displaced New Orleans artists around the country. The first installment of this series is the already planned exhibition at the AAF Contemporary Art Fair in New York City from October 27-30, 2005 (Pier 92, 52nd and 12th Ave, New York City www.aafnyc.com ). JFG will bring the work of several displaced New Orleans artists to this contemporary New York art fair including the work of Miranda Lake whose entire studio was destroyed in the storm; John Davis whose home and studio were flooded with 6 feet of water and works by artist and gallery owner Jonathan Ferrara whose studio suffered minor damage.

appearance at AAF will kickoff the new plans for bringing New Orleans art on the road to the rest of the country. By arranging / Artists in exhibitions in cities across the country, the gallery hopes to aid New Orleans artists in need to be able to continue their creative existences. New Orleans, which had been ranked as the No.#1 midsized arts destination in the country, was a bustling center for artists of all types. Now with a massive recovery effort underway, the local art market has been decimated. Artists of all sorts have lost everything; homes destroyed, studios underwater, artwork and equipment ruined beyond repair. But hope is not lost and hope is what must remain. JFG plans to organize exhibitions so that rest of the country can experience the wonderful creativity of the Crescent City and help artists rebuild their lives. AAF is planned in October 2005 and then an exhibition is in the works in Atlanta in January 2006 plus another show in Los Angeles. The gallery is actively soliciting offers for exhibition space around the country.

Locally, in New Orleans, Jonathan Ferrara will transform his home and studio into a temporary gallery where he will begin to work with artists on exhibition plans and openings at his new home gallery at 762 Delachaise Street until the gallery moves back into its Arts District location in 2007.

In addition, Ferrara will work with the non-profit organization, ARTDOCS (Artists Receiving Treatment Doctors Offering Crucial Services, a no-cost medical program for artists without health insurance), he co-founded with Dr. Vince Morelli of Kenner Regional Medical Center to retool the mission to deal with the Post Katrina needs of local artists.

For more information, please contact Jonathan Ferrara by phone at 504-343-5471 or email at jfg69@bellsouth.net

Together, we will rebuild New Orleans and artists will play a critical role in the new New Orleans.
