The St. Tammany Art Association announces the opening of “Expressions Of Place:  The Southeastern Louisiana Landscape”.  Many artists included are acclaimed professionals whose paintings can be found in major private and public collections regionally and nationally, while others have found their followings closer to home. All, however, are driven to express their impressions of the land. Their styles range from traditional representational imagery to the symbolic and almost totally abstract. Yet, each has an individual interpretation of the Southeast Louisiana landscape.
