WATERMARK HOTEL:: The Jewel of Downtown
At the new Watermark Hotel, a series of panels by Angela Gregory highlight a history of industry and artistry
The twelve-story building on the corner of Third and Convention streets
has most likely escaped the attention of visitors to downtown Baton Rouge for decades.
Stately but drab, forlorn with unrealized potential, it was originally christened
as the Louisiana National Bank building (LNB), in 1925. More recently,
it was known as the “SOB” (State Office Building), after the state purchased it in 1970
to house various departments.
Now in its third iteration, the elegant building has been transformed into
a posh boutique hotel known as Watermark, a Marriott Autograph Series property.
It’s difficult to imagine the travails of state bureaucracy being conducted
amid the grandeur of its lovely Classical interior: marble-clad mosaic floors and walls;
massive fluted plaster columns; coffered ceilings; a monumental staircase;
and the pièce de resistance, eight stunning polychrome bas-relief sculptures on the
frieze above the former bank lobby.
These incredibly detailed murals, created using subtractive methods of sculpting,
hang above the diners of the hotel’s new Southern-American restaurant and full service bar,
The Gregory. The Gregory is named after artist Angela Gregory, the creator of the panels,
who was widely considered a trailblazer for her work in a field dominated by men.
Angela Gregory was born in New Orleans in 1903, daughter of a Tulane
engineering professor and a Newcomb potter. She graduated from the Art School of Newcomb College
in 1925 and went on to become the first person to receive a master’s degree from the
Tulane School of Architecture. Upon her graduation, Gregory was awarded a scholarship
to the Parson’s School in Paris, where she studied under the famed sculptor,
Antoine Bourdelle, a protégé of Auguste Rodin.
Gregory returned to Louisiana in 1928, but after living in 1920s Paris,
the New Orleans she returned to seemed devoid of artistic inspiration and rife
with oppressive heat and humidity. She pressed on, fostering a creative environment
in her home studio in Uptown New Orleans, surrounding herself with artists
and writers who would eventually change the face of the city into an arts mecca.
She quickly became a renowned sculptor and painter, breaking through the gender barrier
so prevalent at the time. But it was her public works projects, present in the most
important buildings being constructed around the state at that time, that put her on the map.
The “Jewel of the Property”
Built in the early 1920s, LNB was Baton Rouge’s first “high rise” in the downtown
business district. Though constructed in the Art Deco era,
the building itself represents Neo-Classical architecture at its best:
understated and streamlined, yet traditional in details and style.
It was after WWII, as part of a 1948—49 renovation that saw the addition
of modern details to the LNB building, when Gregory was commissioned
to create the murals. During the renovations, the second floor balcony was enclosed,
creating an opportunity for the owners to commission artwork that would draw connections
between Louisiana and the banking industry. The panels’ large six-foot-by-twenty-foot size
was employed as an architectural feature to conceal the previous second floor
and to draw the eye upward, fifteen feet above the floor.
The Louisiana of 1948 had undergone significant modernization, and the visionary bankers
wanted to celebrate that progress. Gregory was asked to create eight murals
depicting various aspects of Louisiana commerce such as cotton farming, logging,
shipping, railroads, aviation, petroleum, sugar refining, and, of course,
Louisiana State University. Other iconic themes include the Old Mississippi River Bridge
and the Louisiana Purchase.
Detailed imagery of cypress trees draped with Spanish moss, acres of sugar cane fields,
a mother pelican and her nestlings, and jaunty palmetto fronds adorn each panel,
creating a visual feast of Louisiana culture. The resulting works are colorful and expressive,
with a crisp modernity that hearkens back to Gregory’s days as a supervisor for the
Works Project Administration.
When Ann Connelly, the art consultant on the building’s current renovation,
declared the murals the “jewel of the property,” owner and developer Mike Wampold
decided to spend considerable effort making them and the artist the main focus
of the hotel visitor’s experience. He arranged to have the panels restored to their original grandeur.
Elise Grenier, the project’s art restoration consultant,
found the panels in decent condition but not without damage from
moisture and mechanical etching from ventilation systems that, over the years,
had created salt blooms and discoloration. Atmospheric agents and air currents
(read: too much air conditioning) caused “mechanical abrasion, blistering,
and detachment of both the plaster and the paint layer, resulting in losses in all strata,”
according to Grenier. After careful handling by the experts and craftspeople,
the murals once again render beautifully the bankers’ original intention: state pride.
Wampold Companies has a reputation for creating landmark businesses out of
left-behind structures. The company’s previous work with the Marriott
Autograph Series includes the Renaissance Baton Rouge Hotel
on Bluebonnet Boulevard, where they created an upscale lodging experience
from an unfinished dormitory structure, empty for over twenty years.
They’ve done it again with the Watermark.
When the LNB building underwent renovation in 1948—49,
modern design details were added which today help to inform the
overall interior design concept, creating a complex layering
of aesthetic elements. Hallmarks of the Classical style were employed
throughout the original building, such as Carrara marble arches
and a majestic book-matched stone, all retained today as the wall décor
in the new meeting rooms on the basement level.
Because of the historic nature of the building and its designation within a
National Historic District, certain architectural elements were preserved;
but most of the upper story walls were removed.
The name of the hotel draws upon the identity of the building as a decades-old
banking institution and upon its close proximity to and view of the
Mississippi River. Looking out from the upper story windows, the view across the
Shaw Center of the Arts to the bridge is remarkable.
With 144 rooms, nothing about the hotel interior is average.
Rooms on the upper floors boast jewel-like custom lighting fixtures,
plush indigo carpeting, walls covered in subtle metallic graphics,
and bespoke wardrobes clad in a gold tone sheen and metal mesh.
The guest room doors resemble those of old vaults as a nod to the massive
receptacles in the basement which once contained the assets of the
Baton Rouge business community, tying industrial symbolism into the building.
A sense of whimsy was handily employed by the interior designer,
Doug Detivaux of Gensler Associates, to enhance an otherwise dowdy old bank building.
He and Connelly inserted a sense of Louisiana’s colorful history through
the use of sculpture, photography, and “larger than life” lenticular prints that
play two-dimensional tricks on the eye in the entry vestibule.
The personal influence of owner-developer Wampold is evident in the naming
of the New York-style deli, Milford’s on Third, an homage to Wampold’s grandfather,
Milford Wampold, who owned a grocery with a deli counter in north Louisiana.
These personal touches, so rare in typical chain restaurants and
lodging establishments, set Watermark apart.
What’s sure to be a guest favorite is the room located directly above the
grand entrance on the second floor. In this space, a massive arched metal window greets
the street and one feels momentarily transported to a posh Manhattan enclave.
In fact, the entire building is unlike anything Baton Rouge has ever seen.
It’s about as urban as one can get in this downtown down South by the river.

DOUG KENNEDY :: APRIL SPLASH EXHIBITION
“I use traditional methods of painting, oil, acrylic, pencils, sometimes collage,
to capture moments of action that lead me to a place of visual harmony.” – Doug Kennedy
JOHNNY TAYLOR :: MARCH SPLASH EXHIBITION
Born in Helena, Arkansas, Johnny Taylor grew up in and around Memphis, Tennessee. Early inspirations were MAD Magazine,
Star Wars, and the rock band KISS. When he entered school, Johnny drew variations of these subjects ad infinitum.
This interest in drawing led to a job producing a weekly comic strip at age 10. Thus encouraged, the young cartoonist
determined that he would always make art.
Taylor began painting as a student at the University of Memphis (BFA, Art History, 1996). On New Year’s Eve of 1992,
he made a resolution to paint three paintings a day, every day, for the entire year. By the end of 1993, Taylor had begun
exhibiting the fruits of his labor. Showing paintings regularly ever since, he has not strayed far from the hard-edged
cartoon style that marked his initial efforts. Primarily painted in acrylics with screen printed and stenciled elements,
Taylor’s output has tapered somewhat from his earlier, dizzyingly prolific period. Johnny Taylor’s paintings may be
found in galleries in Austin, Boston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, New York, Memphis and Zürich.
Johnny Taylor currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.

CYNTHIA KNAPP :: FEBRUARY SPLASH EXHIBITION
Sometimes the figure is a starting point and sometimes the works are completely abstract but either way there is an implied
figural presence, whether through physical gestures or depictions of vessel-like forms. In the painting process, I consider “sculpting”
with brushes or pastel, where line and color can wrest dimensionality from the flat surface of the work. -CYNTHIA KNAPP
AMANDA TALLEY :: JANUARY SPLASH EXHIBITION
“painting, for me, is about translating the activity and movement of the outside world into a vocabulary of paint and line.
light, color, and energy are reflected in a fractured window view of the underside of a live oak or in the curls and folds
of an elephant ear. each painting experience becomes a challenge to push aesthetic decision-making aside, in favor of drawing in
the moment. the best paintings occur when I succeed in letting action dictate form.” -AMANDA TALLEY

Collaboration with Artist, Mia Kaplan
When Chef Melissa Martin asked if I would be interested in hanging up my work in “the club”, at first I was a little unsure. Mostly because
hanging your work in a place of dining is an awkward experience – I mean, people come there to eat, not to look at art. Plus, Melissa
over for myself. But that’s what Melissa wanted – for me to take the space and do whatever I wanted with it for at least three months. If it works
out we’ll keep it going, if not, then we will both have some pretty pictures to share.

June spotlight in Baton Rouge Business Report
A self-described interior designer, curator, consultant and artist, Ann Connelly established her fine art business
25 years ago in Baton Rouge,first as a consultant and later opening a gallery space. She has built her
business on word-of-mouth referrals rising to become a standard-bearer of fine art in the community.
Despite her reputation, Connelly does not consider herself successful. “I am thrilled to have this presence in the
community, but I got lucky,” Connelly says. Her early inspiration came from her time spent working with Adalié Brent,
the first director of the Louisiana Art and Science Museum. It was Brent who encouraged Connelly to follow her passion.
“‘Just jump and go do it,’”Connelly says, describing Brent’s push. “She encouraged me to start consulting.”
But for Connelly, success only follows passion. “You work hard,” she says, “and you figure out your way every day.”

Baton Rouge Business Report Cover Story::JILL HACKNEY
Excerpt from The Baton Rouge Business Report
Hackney shifted her routine from painting on the side to treating her art as a full-time job. Seventeen years later, she continues
to be represented by Connelly as well as galleries in Houston, St. Louis, Palm Desert, California,and Three Oaks, Michigan.
She has been featured in numerous exhibitions and is considered one of most sought-after and highly technical painters in south
Louisiana, Connelly says. “When you make a decision to be a career artist, it’s got to be a full-time job,” Hackney says.
“Sometimes the feeling for creating art doesn’t come, but if this is your job, you have to push through it and have self-discipline, just like it is in any other career.”

Splash Exhibition::ENID WILLIAMS
“Although historical and cultural influences inform my work, charts that test for
colorblindness served as my initial inspiration. I find a certain irony in this source,
as the charts are quite beautiful in their own right, and the viewer is persuaded
into a longer examination in order to”read” their content.” – Enid Williams
New artist, Tracey Adams
New work on exhibition for our newest artist, Tracey Adams.“My lifelong interests – including music, science, mathematics and art – are constantly being woven and re-woven into my paintings and works on paper. Because of my background as a musician and conductor I have a strong feeling for musical metaphors and serial systems. My interest in music is especially present both in terms of the visual intervals and patterns that appear in my work; physical engagement and a sense of performance is always part of my studio practice. Each work and each series is a kind of diary of my explorations. My ideas evolve as I apply my intellect, my sense of order and my sense of play to the images and materials at hand. I do start with a kernel of an idea in mind, but somewhere between intention and chance I always find new energies and new directions. I’m never quite sure how a painting will look when it’s finished.”

Digital Catalog featuring the Healing Arts Program Meditation Art Wall
Healing Arts Program at Mary Bird Perkins-Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center
Artist Steve Wilson
The “Mediation Art Wall” is a key architectural feature that sets the tone of the cancer center when entering the atrium upon arriving in the facility.
The faceted wall provides additional impact within the second floor waiting area with an over-look into the light-filled atrium.
The wall is experienced intimately in the second floor meditation room, located behind the architectural glass. The concept, derived
by the architects and design team, was to convey a dramatic connection between the physcial and emotional aspects of the healing process.

Exterior of the “Meditation Art Wall” Gemeaux Glass Installation
Collaged glass fragments from around the world are layered on tempered glass to created a refractive surface.
View from the nearly completed Atrium of the faceted “Gemeaux” wall.
Interior of the 2nd floor Meditation Room, this side of the “Gemeaux” glass uses transmitted light transforming the space into a sea of jewel tones.
Steve created an aesthetic bridge between the tradition and time-honored legacy of stained glass used in the past Mary Bird facilities with a
modern vision realized within the process of gemeaux. The balance between modern and traditional is illustrated in the abstract views of our natural
landscape blended with a distinct reference to the sun and the earth. Our hope is that the experience with the Meditation Art Wall upon
entering Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center creates in every individual a unique, positive feeling of healing, lightfulness and tranquility.
