HUNTSVILLE – New Orleans and jazz go together like Huntsville and rockets.
Now a little of both – jazz and New Orleans – are coming for a visit to the Airport Artway Gallery at Huntsville International Airport.
The airport, in partnership with Decatur’s Carnegie Visual Arts Center, quarterly features a new local artist with a free reception in the Airport Artway micro-gallery on Level 2 of the Airport Terminal.
On Tuesday, the Artway welcomes prolific Decatur painter Marsha Ercegovic who will celebrate the installation of select works from her “New Orleans” series.
Visitors can chat with Ercegovic during the reception. She discuss her personal experiences in the Big Easy, and the paintings that chronicle her 20 years there.
Jazz musician Curtis Jordan will headline the reception featuring live jazz from 5-7 p.m.
Jordan is a Huntsville musician performing with the reggae band Kush as well as the Emily Joseph Band and 3 Thirty-Three Band. He operates Jordan Music School of Jazz in Huntsville and teaches piano and bass guitar in variety of music genres.
During the reception, the Community Artwall at HSV is also showing the photography and digital art installation by student artists from Decatur High School.
