Douglas Bourgeois and Martin Payton 

The Ogden After Hours music series features a couple of artist meet and greets. Louisiana painter Douglas Bourgeois (Pop Star, pictured) and former-New Orleanian (and current-Baton Rouge resident since Katrina) sculptor Martin Payton have current shows at the museum and will discuss their work. Bourgeois paints in meticulous detail and whether he's depicting natural scenes, Louisiana musicians or pop cultural motifs, he imbues his canvasses with an eerie luminescence. He created the portrait of Irma Thomas on the 2008 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival official poster. Payton is from the same family as jazzmen Walter and Nicholas Payton. Influenced by sculptor John Scott, Payton is known for minimalist works depicting African animals and mythological figures as well as more abstract works. Early R&R musician King Lloyd Palmer is the musical guest. Tickets $10, free for Ogden members. — Will Coviello
