"Our newly-remodeled gallery space at 725 Milam Street passed all city inspections today! Many thanks to the volunteers who donated time, money and talent to the cause; the gallery is a sight to behold," said West Edge spear chucker Debbie Engle. " We will be installing artwork within the next two weeks, and will be open for business as soon as we receive our final Certificate of Occupancy."

"Our soft opening is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of Nov. 3, and our grand opening for the day after Thanksgiving. We hope Shreveport will be proud of it's largest, privately-owned downtown art gallery!"

We already have 38 members, plus several non-artist "patron" members...does anyone have another building we can transform into a second gallery? We"ve already outgrown this one!! Eeek!
