By By Jordan Gribble / Special to the American Press

The Henning Cultural Center, 923 Ruth

St. in Sulphur, will present the works of local masters in its Artisan’s

Gallery Masterworks

Exhibit through Feb. 14.

“It’s a collection of over 10 artists from the Artisan’s Gallery society who all do shows together. The styles range from

photography, sculpture, pencil drawings and acrylic and oil paintings,” said Thom Trahan, center director.

“Each artist sort of has a set medium that they typically work in that they’re known for and were able to bring a couple of

pieces from their selected medium.”

The works on display will also be for

sale, Trahan said. Local artists presenting their works are Charlene

Kaough, Sue Zimmerman,

Sally Cappel, Gloria Yang, Bobbi Yancey, Melinda Antoon Cormier,

Ronald Gibson, Anita Ahrens, Geoff Russell, Donna Artigue

Price, Beth Winslett Fontenot and Kathy Gardiner Hebert.

Trahan said the exhibit’s roster includes local art educators and that the gallery looks forward to displaying their work.

“These artists have been displayed in

galleries all over south Louisiana and many have done shows in other

areas as well,”

he said. “We have them come back every couple of years, which

gives them a chance to build up their collection and have new

things to show and sell.”
