Boyd Satellite Lands on Julia
New Gallery Takes Over Former Heriard-Cimino Space, Blake Boyd and Ginette Bone Launch Inaugural Show Tonight
The Julia Street orbit gets a new sighting on Saturday night. The formerly Heriard-Cimino Gallery is now Boyd Satellite (440 Julia Street), the most exciting new stop on the Warehouse District art walk.
Owners Ginette Bone and Blake Nelson Boyd want to use their optimal location to help New Orleans welcome a diversity of artists and aesthetics.
Boyd is a local actor, comedian, and multimedia artist who splits his time between here and London. The native of Slidell will be the face of tonight’s inaugural exhibition, “Magalomania,” curated by Hollywood actor Blake Edward Boyd.
No, it’s not a typo. Gallery co owner, artist, and Tulane professor Ginette Bone said the Blakes’ shared names were precisely the reason they joined forces.
“We got to know him because of the namesake issue,” said Bone. “We became friends with him in California, and he’s about the same age as Blake,” she said.
Boyd Satellite’s inaugural exhibition consists entirely of portraits of Blake Nelson Boyd, a well-known local artist and the gallery’s co owner. Despite the common thread, Bone said that every piece is distinct and a part of a wide range of styles.
“It’s pretty interested how it’s all been interpreted,” said Bone. “There are sketches, a couple of sculptural piece, it’s really kind of fascinating.”
One of Boyd’s childhood heroes is Al Jaffee, Mad Magazine’s most celebrated cartoonist. Jaffee's work is in the show, along with celebrity guest Larry King and dozens of other local and national talents.
Billy Name, the former manager of the Andy Warhol Factory and Boyd’s former mentor, has work up in the exhibition. Local artists such as Nicole Charbonnet, Steve Martin, and others are also showing. The youngest contributor is 12-year-old Asher Marlin.
While the new owners plan to maintain ties with Cimino’s regular artists, Bone and Boyd also want to broaden the scope of the gallery.
“She [Jeanne Cimino] continues to be a part of the gallery in terms of being a mentor,” said Bone. “We will have some of the artists that she built a relationship with in New Orleans. It was a specialty abstract gallery. She did have other more realism painters, but her passion was abstraction,” explained Bone.
The new owners will remain cognizant of Cimino’s vision, while using the space as a way to invite new styles into New Orleans.
“We want to be able to introduce some more experimental stuff into the city,” said Bone. “Blake has been developing and working on getting established artists, national and international to prepare a show specifically for New Orleans,” she said.
Bone’s background is in architecture, and the artist said that “the spatial relationship of the work and the physical space of the gallery,” is a critical component of an exhibition.
“It’s not just a selection of works hung on the wall. They tell a story,” said Bone.
Keep an eye out for the gallery’s March 2013 exhibition from David Eddington.
The opening reception is tonight, from 6-9pm, and the exhibition is on view until February 22. There will be a closing reception that night, and guests are invited to celebrate Billy Name’s birthday. Andy Warhol passed away on February 22, and the party is being held in his honor.
Here’s a full list of artists:
David Amentor, Dave Eggers, Alice McGillicuddy, Chunky B, Margaret Evangeline, Taylor Mead, Mark Bercier, David Fahey, Irina Movmyga, Simon Blake, Tucker Fitz-Hugh, Billy Name, Ginette Bone, David Gamble, Josh Neufeld, Derek Boshier, Grissel Giuliano, Aaron Olshan, Douglas Bourgeous, David Halliday, George Schmidt, Blake Edward Boyd, Barbie L’Hoste, Andres Serrano, Blake Nelson Boyd, Nicole Charbonnet, Ken Kenan, Amanda Talley, Al Jaffee, Julie Silvers, Jeffery Cook, Larry King, Jane Winslow, David Eddington, Asher Marlin, Holly Woodlawn, and Steve Martin.
