Doyle Jeter, popo for the Eye-Twenty Group of artists and proprietor of Enoch's Irish Pub, Monroe, says, "On Jan 9 an exhibition of Works on Paper will open at Turner Art Center, Centenary College, Shreveport. This exhibition, entitled "Donna...Service with a Smile," is a tribute to our friend and fellow artist Donna Service."

Jeter continues, " Almost 2 years have rushed by since Donna's untimely passing, and in that time many have expressed the desire to do something in Donna's memory." He has chosen some 30 artists from the region - Monroe, Ruston, Shreveport - to produce a show at Turner in her memory. He adds, "Thank you Leonard and Mac Service for supporting this project."

A silent auction of the work at Turner will take place Sat, Feb 3, says co-producer Bruce Allen, director of Turner. Monies collected will go to Renzi Center in Donna's name. She was the founding director of Renzi Education & Art Center, 445 Egan St.

Turner Art Center is a former residence on the corner of Centenary Blvd and Rutherford; it contains one of the city's pocket galleries. Turner is across Centenary Blvd from Meadows Museum. A swell parking lot serves both facilities.

Two nationally-recognized artists have work on display in the Service show. They are Lynda Benglis and Deborah Luster.

Turner Art Center: 9 am to 9 pm M - Th, 9 to 5 Fri, 2 - 5 on weekends.
