"AN ALTERNATE VISION"

                 Solo Exhibition By Rolland Golden

          August 2, 2014 - September 21, 2014

               Statement by Ogden Museum describing the exhibition:

"Rolland Golden is an accomplished artist whose work is deeply rooted in the landscapes and culture of the American South, and is focused on bringing deeper significance to the mundane through juxtaposition of objects or unique perspectives. Born in 1931 in New Orleans, LA, Golden moved throughout his childhood between different places in the Deep South. New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta, in particular, had a great influence on the development of his visual aesthetic.

During an artistic career that spans over five decades, Golden has exhibited his work throughout the world. Solo exhibitions of his work have toured both the former Soviet Union (in 1976 and 1977, with shows in Moscow, Kiev, Leningrad and Odessa) and France (1993 - 1995). His work is included in private, corporate and public collections worldwide, most notably the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Historic New Orleans Collection, Mississippi Museum of Art, New Orleans Museum of Art and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.

This exhibition will include over 70 oil paintings, watercolors and drawings. These works were chosen to give the viewer a new look at Golden’s work through the lens of Magical Realism."
