The City of West Monroe, Louisiana, will present “Year of the River” beginning in January 2019. Artworks will be hung in the 2nd floor lobby for all who pass through a busy, busy place to see.
I am thrilled to announce that three of my pieces will be part of this juried exhibit.
Two of my entries were taken while I participated in the River Rat Challenge, a fundraising event on behalf of Horse Assisted Therapy services. The above shot was thus taken from a kayak near the end of a 6-mile run–a loooooong run for a novice like me. Let me assure you, the Louisville Avenue bridge had never looked so good!
Everybody was smiling at the beginning of the race. That’s my friends Angel and Bryan Crawford, part of Team U.S.A., eager to push off and paddle. They were still smiling at the end of the race. Me? Not so much. Groaning was more like it.
Louisiana is the Sportsman’s Paradise and the Ouachita River is important to that. Here, I’m watching an unsuspecting fisherman from high on a bluff located on the University of Louisiana Monroe’s Field Biological Station (Charles Allen Nature Preserve) near Columbia, LA.
I can’t wait to get my images printed, framed and delivered to West Monroe City Hall. An opening reception courtesy of the City of West Monroe and the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council is scheduled January 14, 5 – 7 p.m.
There’s a bonus! An exhibit by reknowned artist and friend Don Cincone is re-opening the same night! See you there.
