Lori K. Gordon - Since Katrina

Since Katrina

Gordon was focusing on landscape painting when Hurricane Katrina struck, obliterating her home and studio in the hamlet of Clermont Harbor, Mississippi. With her tools and supplies destroyed by 140 mile per hour winds and a 43 foot storm surge, Gordon returned to work using the only materials available to her. She began collecting debris and transforming it into mixed media assemblages. Her "Katrina Collection" has been exhibited in dozens of venues around the nation. Private collectors of her work include President and First Lady Michelle Obama,former President and First Lady Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, singer Faith Hill, and ESPN announcer Jon Miller. Pieces of The Katrina Collection may be found in the public collections of the Mississippi Humanities Council, Thea Foundation and William J. Clinton Foundation's Art Across Arkansas, Hancock Medical Center, Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Kentucky, University of Southern Mississippi and the Safeco Corporate Collection, as well as two museums in South Dakota.
