Art by Jasmine C Morelock at Woman's Department Club; visit with the artist Wed & Th, 9 am to noon

Paintings by Jasmine C Morelock have been on display at the Women's Department Club, and will stay on display until April 30. The artist will complete her show with a hello to friends this week. "I will be at the Woman's Department Club on Wed and Thurs, Ap 28 and 29, from 9 am to noon," she said.

Morelock was one of Shreveport's intrepid abstract artists of the 1950's. Alongside Jerry Wray and Clyde Connell, Morelock painted, sculpted and worked in mixed media at a time when Louisiana artists following the abstract expressionists of NYC were small in number.

She may be best known as illustrator of the cover of Goodloe Stuck's book, Shreveport Madam. Yet she has explored a range of formats and subject matter in her paintings.

See Margaret Martin's terrific description of Morelock's career at The Times. This exhibit is hardly Morelock's swan song. Her next project is to display her work on a proper web site.
