East Bank Gallery Presents Lynn Laird
The Bossier Arts Council East Bank Gallery is thrilled to announce an exhibition of artwork by regional artist Lynn Laird. Her works will be on display at the gallery from September 1st to October 15th.
Laird a prolific artist who works in a variety of mediums has exhibited extensively in both Bossier and Shreveport. Always being one to seek out new avenues of self expression she explores a variety of styles. When asked about her upcoming show Follow the Octopus she responded. “The exhibition embraces this sinuous marine animal’s ability to adapt instantly, morphing in both color and texture as it moves through different environments. The ability of the Octopus to operate its four separate sets of articulated legs independently is reflected in the enthusiasm that our artist, Lynn Laird, embraces the multiple mediums of scrimshaw, painting, illustration, and photography. As you move through the main gallery viewing artworks produced in distinctly different styles from traditional to brightly whimsical, we hope that you too will be touched by the passion in which they were created.”
The East Bank Gallery is a project of the Bossier Arts Council is committed to promoting art work of regional artists. It is located in BAC headquarters at 630 Barksdale Blvd. right off of I-20. You can visit the gallery Tuesday-Saturday from 11:00am-6:00pm or by appointment.
