The Serpents of Bienville Art Gallery & Museum Grand Opening

  • The Serpents of Bienville 1800B Main St. Daphne, AL, 36526 United States (map)

Internationally honored tattooist, illustrator, and author Sean Herman, in partnership with his wife, Amanda Herman,  announced the opening of the Serpents of Bienville Art Gallery and Museum in Daphne, Alabama.  The gallery opened on February 1st.  The story telling based project has announced their first gallery show for March 12th, 2016 at 6pm.  The Gallery will be exhibiting the illustration series “Bienville’s Sacred Oath” created by co-owner, Sean Herman.  These illustrations are based on local folklore and ghost stories from the Alabama Gulf coast.  Using micron pen and ink wash, Herman painstakingly creates detailed images consisting of tiny dots.  These dots grow into a much larger image, one that draws the viewer into specific lore, setting the stage for the larger message to come.  These stories, that have been passed down for generations, are also more closely examined by Herman in essay form, with small explanations accompanying each print hanging at the gallery show.  The full essays can be found via the project’s website,  Serpents of Bienville Art Gallery will be focusing on Herman’s in the main gallery until the beginning of May, 2016.  After this time, the pieces will go onto a permanent collection on site.
