BATON ROUGE—Local photographer Tate Tullier is partnering with The Wellness Studio, LLC for a special Tub Time with Tate art show on May 29 from 7-9 p.m. at the Wellness Studio Baton Rouge.
“Tub Time with Tate is the dream project I’ve needed in my life, something to ignite my inner Andy Warhol,” Tullier said. He prints the black and white photographs of subjects in bath tubs onto metal canvases.
The Gonzales resident recently showed his work at the Dyer Arts Center in Rochester, N.Y. After his pieces returned home, he started looking for a place to show his work locally. “With most of my current Tub Time with Tate subjects being local, I knew I wanted to do a show soon so everyone could check out the latest metal print artwork in person.”
When Wellness Studio owner Dr. Mary Kathryn Rodrigue approached Tullier about showing in the Studio’s Baton Rouge space, he jumped at the opportunity. Rodrigue partners with various boutiques, artists and other local businesses in an effort to change the perception of mental health wellness and break down stigmas associated with mental illness. She thought this kind of art show might be the perfect fit. “The correlation between counseling and photography is the exposure of one’s inner vulnerability. The creativity of The Wellness Studio and Tate Tullier lends itself to expressing matters of both mind and body,” Rodrigue explained.
Items in the art show are available for purchase with 20 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Drew Rodrigue and Bella Bowman foundations. Both 501(c)3 foundations work to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer.
The Wellness Studio Baton Rouge is located at 7472 Highland Rd. The event is free and open to the public. Tullier and The Wellness Studio Baton Rouge team invites the Baton Rouge community to come enjoy snacks by Country Table, refreshments and live music by Jodi James while viewing some of Tullier’s signature pieces.
