Stunning plein air views of urban centers in New Orleans abound during Phil Sandusky’s latest solo exhibition. When and where?

Degas Gallery in New Orleans recently opened a fantastic solo exhibition on June 3 featuring the plein air paintings of Phil Sandusky. Titled “Impressions of New Orleans,” the exhibition is a chance for the artist to showcase his local cityscapes and urban neighborhoods — a subject for which Sandusky is nationally known. Drawing upon his scientific background, Sandusky “has tempered his painting with an understanding of vision that goes beyond the age-old dictums about optics, light, and perspective to venture into the realms explored by modern vision science,” his website reports.
