ABOUT THE ABITA STUMPS
The Abita Stumps bill themselves as “a band of mother-stumpin’ swampy-tonk cats.” The country-music quintet are regular fixtures at the Abita Springs Opry and festivals across Southeast Louisiana. Their foot-stomping tunes include “Liquored Up and Lacquered Down,” “Mississippi Mud,” “Highway Patrol,” and “All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down.”
ABOUT JIM STEG: NEW WORK
Curator Russell Lord will discuss the works of Jim Steg, considered to be New Orleans’ preeminent 20th-century printmaker. The retrospective Jim Steg: New Work spans the career of the artist, from his sketches as an art student and World War II soldier to his experimental works using a variety of media as a Newcomb College professor from the 1940s through the 1990s.
