Press Release

JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY is pleased to present the debut solo exhibition of New Orleans artist Tony Dagradi, entitled Books Transposed.  Perhaps best known for his musical talents as a Grammy-award winning Jazz Saxophonist, in 2015 Dagradi began to apply his methodologies of jazz composition to visual creations using his collection of antique books. The final products are sculptural collages, which act as a sort of visual summary of the book in question’s contents. The exhibition will be on view from 26 February through 30 March 2018 with an opening reception on Saturday 3 March from 6-9pm in conjunction with the Arts District New Orleans (ADNO)’s First Saturday Gallery Openings.
