Secretary of State Tom Schedler and the Friends of LSEM announce the opening of an extraordinary art exhibit of natural history beauty. The Fall Art show and sale will open on Sunday, October 22, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. with an artists’ reception. Light refreshments will be served. For the duration of the show, visitors may vote for their favorite artist and one patron will receive a giclee from the Society.
The Louisiana Society of Animal Artists exhibit features local artists including Linda Beecher, Janis Blount, Noah Bounds, Diane Burr, Carla Davis, Don Edwards, Ronald Kidwell, Gayle LaCaze, John McDonald, Sena H. McWilliams, Melba Miller, Carolyn Pitts, Wayne Roberts, Megan Davis Taylor, Esther Thompson.
This year’s show features small-scaled works – so that buyers can group several together and create their own designs.
The show will offer a variety of mixed media and artworks on canvas, and paper in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel. The original artworks truly represent the animal world in a natural environment and will be available for sale.
The Louisiana Society of Animal Artists exhibit will be on display on the west wing gallery until January 5, 2018. The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular museum hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. The museum is located at 3015 Greenwood Road, between Hearne and Jewella Streets.
