Courtney Egan


Group Exhibition, Tempter, 2023

Courtney Egan is a lens-based media artist and naturalist who weaves the tradition of botanical art with sculpture and digital technologies. Strongly inspired by the profusion of native and non-native flora in New Orleans, where she has lived and worked in since 1991, Courtney’s artworks ask broad questions about how human life and the plant world co-evolve.

She began presenting nature-themed projected artworks in 2010 with her solo show, “Field Recordings,” at Heriard-Cimino Gallery in New Orleans.  Since then she has had solo shows with Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum, Louisiana Art and Science Museum, Colorado State University Art Museum, and University of Louisiana’s Hilliard Museum. Group and two-person showings include the Lighted Art Festival in Napa, Luna Fete in New Orleans, “Ear to the Ground: Earth and Element in Contemporary Art” at the New Orleans Museum of Art, “Digital Nature” at the Los Angeles Arboretum, “Between Nature and Technology” at the Sonoma Museum of Art, Digital Graffiti in Alys Beach, FL, Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis, MO, Ballroom Marfa in Marfa, Texas, and The Soap Factory in Minneapolis. She has also shown short films in festivals such as the Ann Arbor Film Festival and the Black Maria Film Festival.

She was an artist-in-residence at the Sante Fe Art Institute and at Louisiana Artworks in New Orleans. She is a founding member of the New Orleans-based visual arts collective Antenna Gallery. Courtney holds an M.F.A. from Maryland Institute College of Art.

Her work has been reviewed in Sculpture Magazine, Country Roads Magazine,,,, and is in the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation collection, University Medical Center in New Orleans, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and in private collections.

She has taught art and media in elementary, secondary, and college classrooms since 1991.
