Raine Bledsoe's mixed media, post-Katrina image at Artspace; open Th - Sat, 10 am to 6 pm

The New Orleans Artists in Exile show has filled the downtown Shreveport gallery called Artspace with remarkably inventive, soulful and classy art. Says Sharon Bennett, "These exhibits will run through July 22. Then the gallery will be busy mounting the Faces of Katrina exhibit."

Coolspace will open next week, added Bennett, with the Jerry Lyles exhibit, "Home Front". That exhibit will run through July 22. That show will be followed by the Bill Joyce-curated faces of Katrina exhibit - which opens on August 25 and closes October 20.

Artspace hours are Th, Fri and Sat: 10 AM - 6 PM through the summer. Hands-on activities for the children are available Th, Fri and Sat and a professional artist is available from 10:30 to 12 noon and 2:00 to 3:30 PM each of those days.

MoInfo at SRAC: 673-6500.

And stand by for some happy hour news from Pam Atchison & Artspace.
