Thursday, November 21st, we will offer visitors the opportunity to discover and view original oil paintings, some as old as 40 years, some as new as this week. Come celebrate with us, BYO, connect with Jon Schooler himself, and meet and greet his collectors, friends and other art lovers.
Schooler was born in 1953 in Brooklyn, NY and is a self taught artist. He made his home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, from 1968 until 2003 and now calls Oak Street, New Orleans his new neighborhood.
Jon Schooler’s work is represented in the New Orleans Museum of Art, and regularly exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, and held in the permanent collection of the new contemporary museum in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico – Casa Museo de Arte Contemporaneo.
We hope to see you there!

Very cool trailer for the documentary that Driscoll Antiques is working on.
Ralph Driscoll restores Antique Furniture and related items using the traditional techniques and materials of 18th& 19th century craftsmen. Audrey Driscoll is an interior design consultant specializing in the preservation of historic homes. Many of our jobs overlap to include both homes and the furniture in them. Ralph has restored projects for a number of the local museums when an authentic restoration is important to retaining the authenticity and value. High end finishes for fine furniture such as French Polishing are one our specialties. Many of the materials that we use are difficult to find and the techniques that we use belong to a dying art. Southern Louisiana is steeped in tradition and offers interesting projects in need of preservation that will become future segments of our documentary. Driscoll Antiques website: driscollantiques.com
