2021 PhotoNOLA Opening Reception with jazz favorites Naked On The Floor

A portion of the proceeds will benefit ongoing Hurricane Ida relief through our partnership with Another Gulf Is Possible

Come celebrate the 16th annual PhotoNOLA Opening Reception at The Broadside . This inspiring, creative, and fun evening event will feature photographic works from an array of visual artists and photographers. We are partnering with Another Gulf Is Possible to highlight the ongoing crisis in relief efforts due to the Hurricane Ida storm. Photographic work from staff photographers at the Times-Picayune will showcase the devastation and resilience of the residents of Southern Louisiana and the relief still necessary to rebuild.

Work will be digital projected in 4k at the outdoor Broadside theatre here in New Orleans. This event will feature a live jazz band after the exhibition. More artists and jazz details to follow.

Lady Blue Devils Project

Ashley Teamer + Annie Flanagan

In 1973, after the passage of Title IX, Mary Dixon Teamer founded Dillard University’s Lady Bleu Devils in New Orleans, Louisiana. Nearly 50 years later, Mary’s granddaughter, Ashley Teamer, along with friend and collaborator Annie Flanagan, have documented the present day Lady Bleu Devils team over the course of two years. They’ve witnessed them become the 2018 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference champions as well as how their deep interconnections and unwavering community grew over the seasons. 

Through a billboard series in New Orleans coming this year, their project inserts Black women in the landscape of the city, highlighting the significance of the team and the relationships and complexities of each player in their pursuit of athletic and academic excellence at a historically Black university.

Naked On The Floor 

Local jazz favorites Jonathan Freilich on guitar and compositions, James Singleton on bass, Doug Garrison on drums, and a three-piece assorted woodwind section of Rex Gregory, Derek Douget and Dan Oestreicher. This band has existed in assorted lineups since the early 1990s, always as a venue and vehicle for Jonathan's deeply unique songbook that crosses between jazz and many aspects of world-and-culturally-wide styles and traditions.

Another Gulf Is Possible

Another Gulf Is Possible Collaborative is a women-of-color led,  grassroots collaborative of ten members from Brownsville, Texas to Pensacola, Florida. We are built upon decades of organizing resulting in a strong and rooted ecosystem of relationships between individuals tied to a multitude of organizations, networks, communities, and alliances from the US Gulf South to the Global South.
