Byron May Exhibition
Reception with the Artist
Saturday, August 26th 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.
Byron May’s incredible 3-D artwork is a culmination of over 30 years in the graphic arts industry. This Shreveport native enjoys the process of transforming unassembled elements of his imagination into an image that excites and fascinates the viewer. When viewing his work with the 3-D glasses the vibrant colors seem to leap off the surface, making the paintings feel as though you can walk right into them.
We have just recently received new work from this artist. If you have never experienced Byron May’s 3-D paintings before, you must see them for yourself!
