Ralph is retired from the Air Force. But during his career travels around the world he enjoyed visiting the open-air markets. “I saw the need for a place for local artists to show their work,” said Ralph. That is how this downtown grass-roots effort came about. Members of the Shreveport Pastel Society, The Shreveport Art Club and West Edge Artists’ Co-op plan to show their work.
For those who might ask does this compete with the Farmers’ Market? WEACo founder Debbie Buchanan-Engle said, “It’s good to have a variety of things happening in downtown Shreveport.”
