Thomas Little's mural for A Stone's Throw Cafe: a new view of the pasture out back

Originally uploaded by trudeau.
Rachel Ginsberg Stone had a conventional looking diner - A Stone's Throw Cafe - until she sat down to work on a blank wall with painter-sculptor Thomas Little. The result of their planning was a droll trompe l'oiel mural ("fool the eye"). Seems to me it carries a hint of Austintation.

Seems to Debbie Engle, one of the founders of West Edge Artists Co-op, that Little's mural brings glory to the co-op. She writes of the group, "Check out our Citywide Gallery Program exhibits at Christus Schumpert's Integrative Medicine Clinic, Stone's Throw Cafe', Bistro 6301, and Marjorie Lyons Playhouse. Be sure to visit WEACo member Thomas Little's mural at Stone's Throw Cafe' - it's absolutely fabulous! Coming down the pike are huge shows at both Harrah's Horseshoe Hotel and the downtown Convention Center.

We've juried in several new artists lately: Jamie Sanders, LaShea Brittain, Lena Hall, Alice Guerrero, Suzie Paulovich and Reba Neel, among others. West Edge Artists Co-op is growing exponentially it seems, and our gallery will be open before you know it. We will curate the largest, privately-owned gallery in downtown Shreveport. Friends of WEACo are welcome to stop by 725 Milam Street on Saturday mornings while we're working on renovating the space."
