BAC’s Emerging Artist Gallery features Heather Evans
The Bossier Arts Council Emerging Artist Gallery is thrilled to announce an exhibition of artwork by regional artist Heather Evans. Her show will feature a variety of mediums and subject matters and will be on display throughout the month of November.
Evans, a native of the Shreveport-Bossier area, is a contemporary experimental artist driven by a strong desire to challenge limits set by herself and her environment. She draws much of her inspiration from day-to-day experiences with other people, as well as from local artists and craftsmen.
When asked about why she creates she responded “I want to encourage and inspire the viewer to face their challenges head-on. I hope that this inspiration and encouragement could somehow bring about a sense of contentment and confidence in the individual. I believe that we are only able to see the degree of success and happiness as it relates to the equal opposites of struggle and sadness.” She sees her current body of work as just a preview of what is to come.
The Emerging Artist Gallery is a project of the Bossier Arts Council and 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.
