Jeremiah Ariaz: Louisiana Trail Riders

August 6 – 27
Saturday Open House: August 6, 12 – 5 PM
In-Person Artist Talk: Saturday, August 6, 2 PM

Jeremiah Ariaz examines Creole history and horse culture in Louisiana Trail Riders. Since 2014, Ariaz has been photographing various southwest Louisiana clubs’ weekend trail rides—the Crescent City Cowboys, Desperados, Buffalo Soldiers, and The Stepping In Style Riding Club, among other groups. Ariaz was raised in Kansas and is now a Professor of Art at Louisiana State University. He received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and MFA from the State University of New York at Buffalo. His artworks explore the West as both a physical space and a terrain for the imagination.
