SHREVEPORT, La. — Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin and the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum invite the public to attend the opening of “Down South – Water and Oil Do Mix: Realist and Impressionist,” an outstanding exhibit of landscape and still life art by Albino Hinojosa and Dave Ivey. The exhibit will be on display from April 2 to April 28 in the West Wing Gallery with an Opening Reception on Sunday, April 2 from 2–4 p.m. The reception is open to the public and LSEM Friends will provide light refreshments. Visitors can view the exhibit during regular museum hours Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Albino Hinojosa, an American realist painter, born in Atlanta, Texas, grew up in nearby Kildare. He received his BFA from East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas, and his MFA from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston in 1975, where he has taught studio art in the University’s School of Art since the mid-1970s. 

Dave Ivey was a student of Albino Hinojosa at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, La., where he received his MFA. Ivey’s paintings are impressionist in style and grow out of the southern rural life he and his wife enjoy close to their home in the country.
