October 5 is the day of our annual open house and art crawl.
The Guiton Artists Studios will hold it’s annual open house. Various artists will open their doors to show off new works. Among the artists that welcome your visit are Bruce Williamson and Caroline Ratliff.
The theme for my studio is French Quarter: Five Years After Katrina.
I ‘ve had the opportunity to visit the French Quarter in New Orleans several times and things are pretty much back to “normal”. The people are amazing! The sounds are festive once again. I’ve completed several paintings, most of which I’ve painted in plein aire on the streets of the Quarter. I remember the first time I visited NOLA, I had the distinct feeling of being in an old Mexican town with the same Spanish and French influence in the architecture and its people. Yes, this is definitely a people centered environment. I hope you can feel all this in the paintings featured in the studio.
Saturday, October 30th, from 2 to 8 pm. (NOTE EXTENDED SCHEDULE)
