Are you tired of hearing that everything is different this year? Yeah, me too. And of having to say it. But it is, and Ruston is doing a Peach Fest that reflects that.
Go here to learn more about this year’s scaled-back festival. I’m going to focus on the art exhibit, organized by North Central Louisiana Arts Council, a dynamic group that schedules great activities in Ruston year-round. As a member, I got invited to the show.
To avoid people crowding into a single space to see what is typically a large show, the artworks are scattered out around town in the storefronts of willing merchants. Thank you, merchants!
I’m sorry I can’t tell you exactly where my pieces are. I haven’t had time to go look! So treat yourself to a stroll around Ruston–as I hope to next week.
It’s unfortunate they scaled the festival back, but I’ll be sure to look out for your artwork!
Agreed, Holden. In October, seems to me they could have just moved most of it outdoors–and a lot of it was already. Do keep an eye out for my work and let me know if you see it. BTW, followers of Edge & Essence: Holden has a great blog called “Peach Town.” I recommend it.
