HAMMOND – The first lecture in the series “Let’s Talk Art,” sponsored jointly by Southeastern Louisiana University’s Department of Visual Art + Design and the Friends of Sims Library, will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 5 p.m. at the Contemporary Art Gallery on Southeastern’s campus.

Professional artist, author, and teacher Kim Howes Zabbia will present “Artists and Viewers: A Complex Marriage.” The lecture is free and open to the public.

With a bachelor’s degree in English and journalism from Southeastern and a master’s degree in studio art from LSU, Zabbia has been teaching art for over 40 years, the last 12 as owner of the Art Station, a center for collaboration of the arts in downtown Ponchatoula.

Zabbia has had 24 solo exhibitions since 1990. Currently represented by Ariodante Gallery and the New Orleans Art Center, Zabbia had her work spotlighted in 2014 with a retrospective exhibit at the Pensacola Museum of Art.

She is the author of the new book “Just Paint It Ain’t: Demystifying the Complex Marriage of Artists and Their Viewers.”

For more information, contact Sims Library Director Eric Johnson at 985-549-3962.
