Painter Mary Louise Porter at Turner Art Center gallery, Centenary College

An exhibit by Louisiana artist Mary Louise Porter will be on display at Centenary's Turner Art Center gallery through Friday, Feb. 17, says Bruce Allen.

Porter's vivid, contemporary landscapes and three-dimensional media have been exhibited nationwide. She also paints walking canes in custom themes, having been inspired to give personality to her mother's "ugly, brown cane." Examples of her artwork can be found at

Having received a BFA and MFA in painting from Louisiana State University, Porter now teaches a survey of the arts course for Louisiana Virtual School as well as studio classes for Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts.

I'm so excited to find this blog with local arts information. I've added it to my "daily reads." Now, I can go back at my leisure and catch up on all the previous posts.
