The Rediscovery of a Southern Regional Artist

2016 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Art (Adult Nonfiction)

Painting over the course of fifty years, Martha Wright Ambrose, both student and teacher, remained true to herself as a representational artist, determined to “be, each day, a better painter.” Her paintings include the architecture of New Orleans and southern Louisiana, rural landscapes and waterways, as well as depictions of her worldwide travels. Rescued from certain destruction, her body of work has since been cleaned and preserved and is presented for the first time in book form here.
