About the Joan of Art Juried Art Exhibition

The Joan of Arc Project, the organization that creates and produces the annual Joan of Arc Parade and Salon de Jeanne d’Arc, is again partnering with Ariodante Contemporary Art & Craft Gallery on Julia Street to celebrate and showcase local artists’ work depicting Joan of Arc. This is the third year of the annual contest.

Three local judges selected the contest winners, and a selection of additional artworks submitted were invited to become part of the Joan of Art Show, curated by Ariodante owner Laurie Reed.  All the selected artworks will be displayed together in the main gallery of Ariodante Contemporary Art & Craft Gallery at 535 Julia Street, New Orleans, from September 2-28, 2023.   

“This contest gives us an opportunity to meet new artists and to collaborate with a unique arts organization, The Joan of Arc Project. It is a win/win for all of us to build an annual show around this theme. The show continues to grow each year, and some of the artists who participate in this show end up selling other pieces at Ariodante year-round,” said Reed.
