This is the centerpiece painting for ‘Billy at the Bokeh: Places I Love.

The 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina will be this August.  In 2006-07 Billy Hedel created a body of work documenting his experiences and the people he met during and after the storm.  These paintings and drawings travelled extensively throughout the Tri-state and introduced Billy’s work to the public.  They are based on real-time sketches Billy made during and after Katrina but were all painted in Evansville.

Friday, July 24 from 5 to 7pm the Arts Council (318 Main, 812/422-2211) is hosting a special event and exhibit about Gulf Coast artists’ work and the effects Katrina has made in their lives.  Billy’s work will be included in a special mini-show in the Window on the Walkway.  This is a preview of a larger retrospective show of Billy’s Katrina-themed work being hosted at Patchwork Central  which opens September  4 during First Friday at Haynie’s Corner.

And Billy Hedel’s Gallery will be open on August 7 from 6 to 9pm during the next First Friday event.  We are planning a one-night only sale of Billy’s new work.  His drawings of historic homes in the Arts District will be displayed at Patchwork Central that same evening.

Please join us for one or all of these events.
