We're thrilled to share the news: Jeanine will be featured in the Fall 2016 issue of Where Women Create! Her journey from Fortune 500 sales rep to visionary gallery owner is covered by Jen O'Connor in her column "The Business of the Studio". You'll get a behind the scenes peak at Jeanine's command center office in the loft and also discover how a trip to Newfoundland sparked her 20 year journey.
Please join us for a Release Party on August 6 from 1 - 3pm. We'll have a champagne toast, some refreshments, and magazines available for purchase.
We thank all of our devoted collectors and folk art fans - we wouldn't be here without your support and your continuing patronage!

Ruby C. Williams is a treasure! We celebrate her birthday in the month of June and are so pleased that she will visit the gallery on Sunday the 26th from 2-4pm for a joyful celebration. No cake and candles for Ruby,as she prefers collards and cornbread! If you would like to stop by and give her a birthday wish, please do. If you would like to send some well wishes from afar, just jot a note and send it to the gallery via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sizzling summer days are upon us, and all we can think to do to combat them is to throw a party! We're donning white linen and serving up gumbo, both are New Orleans traditions. The colorful mix of art in our summer show is sure to have you smiling. If you can't join us in person, please have a look at these three artists who deliver a Cajun punch through their artwork: Pat Juneau, Lorraine Gendron, and Lois Simbach.
Keep cool any way you can!

Our Spring show, Funny Bones, is full of the stuff that makes you smile, grin, and - if we're really being honest - snort. You know that kind of laugh that comes from the back of your throat and eeeks out your nose? Some of our favorite artists have been tinkering, painting, and collaging to their hearts' content and we can't wait to share it with you. Check out all the fab fun that Lucy, Melissa, Anthony, and Jane have been up to on the Current Show page.
Taking a cue from Jane's comical series of "nuns with bad habits", Mary is getting into the spirit of things while hanging the show.
The opening reception is Saturday, April 20 from 6 - 8pm. LOL guaranteed.

We are sad to share the news of Frankie's passing on March 17. He was the beloved Senior Greeter here at the gallery and he has so many fans and friends who will miss him. We thank you for showing him so much love and affection as part of our family.
