Visual Art Initiatives in the St. Roch Neighborhood: The SRCC Artist Residency and Staple Goods

BY AARON COLLIER
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2013

Historically, New Orleans has been a city that nourishes and generates creativity amongst artists who stop in, stay for a period, or call it home.  The artist residency at St. Roch Community Church, as well as the collective and gallery space entitled Staple Goods, both aim to further galvanize the St. Roch and St. Claude neighborhoods of New Orleans in keeping such tradition.  Aaron Collier coordinated the inception of both of these enterprises with the sole intention of providing artists with opportunities in a neighborhood that has been, and continues to be, a gift to him and his family.

Colors of Passion

BY NITISHA KASHYAP

"Never did I realize that she was gifting me something very valuable. This gift was something that was going to help me in my life to looks towards it with a purpose."

In Colors of Passion from PechaKucha Night Bandar Seri Begawan Vol. 6Nitisha Kashyap shares how art is more than just a mere past-time.

Nitisha has had a passion for art since she was a young girl. When she landed in a foreign country with no friends and no idea of how things would be, she became depressed and lost her passion for living. As time passed, she fatefully met the owner of Jo Art Gallery & Decor who offered a position in which she can teach others how to paint. 

She believes that making art brings joy to others.
