Karpeles Museum, Shreveport, has Albert Walker's biplanes, War of 1812 documents and Robert Burns birthday at 3201 Centenary Blvd

"Our current local artist on display is Albert Walker," says the Karpeles Museum's Muzette Gallagher. "He is from Bossier, is primarily a landscape and wildlife artist, but in the past few years has developed an interest in vintage military airplanes. The current exhibit is in oil and the details of each painting are incredible."

Karpeles has probably planned the best Robert Burns Birthday in the region. Gallagher says, "Now, for the fun part. On Sat, Jan 26, from 1 - 3 pm, we will be celebrating the birthday of Scottish poet Robert Burns. We'll be having bagpiping, cockaleekie soup, shortbread and a merry old time! Think of it as Scottish Mardi Gras."

The document exhibit is "The War of 1812. See it through the month of March.
10 am to 4 pm Tues through Sat.
