Gerard and Judy Show

Gerard and Judy were vigilant in their attempt to exhibit their work. They began calling galleries in the area and after some rejection; they finally got the answer they wanted, yes! In late summer the Gallery Fine Art Center received a package in the mail containing Gerard and Judy’s beautiful and unique work. The Bossier Art Council is proud to exhibit this fine show and give Gerard and Judy the recognition they deserve. Their work will be on display, Dec.r 21 from 3-5 p.m. at the East Bank Gallery. Join us for the show, light refreshments and meet Gerard and Judy in person.

These small items make great stock to sell at events where people want small items immediately. Must have digital images of your work to participate. Class will be held at the Bossier Arts Council, 630 Barksdale Blvd.

Project Art Supplies is an ongoing effort to put Art Supplies in the hands of Bossier students. Please continue to support this effort by dropping off supplies to the Bossier Arts Council at 630 Barksdale Blvd Bossier City, LA 71111. We will focus on a different artist medium every two weeks. This December bring boxes of CRAYONS! While you are out shopping, stop by the school supply section of your favorite store and grab a box of colored pencils. Who knows- maybe they will end up in the hands of the next Picasso! To donate, visit http://www.bossierarts.org/component/k2/item/129
