After a long, cold winter, art enthusiasts hit the streets for the Downtown Gallery Crawl on April 3rd. Nine galleries hosted the crawl on either side of the Ouachita River. On Antique Alley in West Monroe, over 30 artists were represented at The River Gallery. Joli Livaudais, owner of Livaudais Gallery hosted talented photographer Ashley Feagin before taking off for her own solo opening at New Orleans’ Martine Chaisson Gallery.
One of the newest galleries to the lineup, Luna Blue, hosted works by six Louisiana Tech students who are helping to restore and improve downtown Monroe by collaborating on a mural on the side of the Luna Blue building.
At Sugar Galley, our very own Bayou Icon Adele Ransom’s son, Burg Ransom, had his large, gallery-wrapped, metallic photographs on display while Stacy Medaries showed new works in aluminum colored with alcohol ink. It was a great start to Spring and the wonderful things that are happening in Downtown Monroe.
