New Orleans artist Dapper Bruce Lafitte, Bruce Davenport Jr., brings his idiosyncratic drawings of marching bands, crowds, sports figures and other colorful characters to Knoxville. Invoking the spirit of New Orleans, his work embodies the enthusiastic rhythm of an effusive energy characteristic of a vibrant community. A native of New Orleans, Bruce is a fixture of the local artistic community.

Bruce Davenport Jr. is represented by Fierman Gallery in New York and shows extensively throughout the south. He has shown at the Outsider Art Fair in New York and he will be included in an upcoming exhibition, New Horizons: Self-Taught Art of the 21st Century, in Hickory, NC, Sept 23-Jan 7th.
