Downtown Gallery Crawl
The final Downtown Gallery Crawl of the summer was held Aug. 7, and art enthusiasts were pleased that cooler temperatures and fair weather prevailed. Strolling among the galleries, visitors viewed art by some of the region’s best known and best loved artists, including new photography from Burg Ransom, paintings by Ricky Sikes, and video and mixed media installation by Kelsea McCrary and Austin Bantel.
As they sipped on complimentary beverages and noched on snacks provided by Nonna, visitors also got the chance to take in a bit of wordplay at the Arender Gallery. Around the corner at Luna Blue, Ian Blaylock displayed a selection of dramatic portraits running the gamut of human emotions.
The gallery crawls have become one of northeast Louisiana’s signature arts events, often featuring live music, entertainment, and some of the best art in the South. The next Gallery Crawl will be held in October.
