On December 1, ten galleries opened their doors to art enthusiasts for the Downtown Gallery Crawl. In West Monroe, the Ouachita River Art Gallery featured works by teen students from Wossman High School. RUMO’s hosted Emily Jane Cruz and Ali Hijazi as they presented Grey Areas. Along Art Alley, UPSTAIRS and Big Room Galleries showcased a “mixed bag” of artists with musician Jackson Culp entertaining the crowd. Brooke Foy at the Garrett House presented her aspiring undergraduate students’ work from ULM’s bachelor of fine arts program. ARENDER studio + gallery had its annual showing of Ruston’s Joey Slaughter’s mixed media pieces and just a few doors down Sugar Gallery displayed several local artists’ pieces. It was a great showing of art this holiday season. Mark your calendar for the next crawl on February 2nd.
