August Downtown Gallery Crawl
On August 4, art enthusiasts reveled at the Downtown Gallery Crawl. From 5 to 9 p.m. eight galleries opened their doors to display our area’s finest artisans. The River Gallery presented works by Mary May, who recently won first place at the 2016 Louisiana Peach Festival in Ruston. The Big Room Gallery presented potter Gary Ratcliff, among other local artists. ARENDER studio + gallery brought in Chad Schoonmanker, a Baton Rouge-based artist. Nicole Duet was featured at the newly renovated Garrett House and the Palace Gallery had Emily Ezell show her beautiful figure drawings and painting. Many more artists were on hand at various galleries showing their works. Crawlers who missed this event will want to mark their calendars for the next crawl on October 6th.
