November 1 benefit for Meadows Museum of Art: Cirque de Shreve at 2745 Fairfield Ave, Shreveport
Over 80 regional artists, including Bill Joyce, have pledged to donate art to be auctioned at Cirque de Shreve on Nov 1, says Talbot Hopkins.
Given the slim budget afforded the Meadows Museum, a jewel of an art center, by Centenary College, a benefit is being produced by Friends of Meadows Museum, says Rachel Hill. Today the Meadows is being directed by Centenary art faculty members Lisa Nicoletti and Bruce Allen.
The benefit, to be held in the garden at a Fairfield mansion once called Pinewold Manor, 2745 Fairfield, will use a circus theme. The Haag Circus once wintered and paraded on Fairfield, said Sherry Kerr.
Meanwhile, Meadows has 3 highly-viewable shows and the museum is open 11 am til 6 pm Tues - Fri (12 - 4 on Sat). The exhibits are Centenary in Paris: An Exhibition by First-Year Students, “Relaying: Testimonies on Motherhood Lost”, a Video Installation by Mali De-Kalo of Tel Aviv, and “With the Beatles,” lithographic illustrations by Enoch Doyle Jeter for the above-titled Beatles book.
