Gumbo: A Celebration of Louisana Art

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 18th from 6pm to 9pm

The gallery will be filled with the flavor of Lousiana for our summer show, Gumbo! Jeanine has invited a roux of talented folk artists including Lorainne Gendron and father/son duo Pat & Andre Juneau. We're also pleased to introduce the work of New Orleans costume designer and artist Lois Simbach.

The Saturday evening opening reception will coincide with the Sanford Art Walk. Gumbo will be served, the soundtrack will be lively, and the libations will quench a summer thirst. In a nod to a hot summer tradition in the streets of NOLA, we'll be wearing white linen. Join us! The show runs from June 18th to July 17th.
