Hey! Happy Fracking New Year!!!

Covington Weekly began with the intention of promoting all that Historic Downtown Covington has to offer, and we would like to thank our advertisers who have supported our vision. The English Tea Room was CW’s very first advertiser, and we watched their business grow through the years, as CW grew. Our Place Studio has been with us for a couple of years, Liz Bragdon providing insightful articles with exciting and new approaches to movement exercise and yogic disciplines. History Antiques & Interiors celebrates their third year downtown, filled with eclectic treasures.

Justin Brien offers a very disciplined and rational approach to rehabilitative exercise and general movement through Natural Movement Solutions, located in the Village Walk area. Goodbee Plumbing recently moved to downtown Covington, a testament to the business they do here locally. Then there’s Columbia Street Rock N Blues Cafe, with salads, solid pub fare and nightlife, and The Green Room, offering drink specials and late night food on the weekends courtesy of Phil at Baba Ganoush.  Zita’s joined this past year, and we wish Jack and Zita well with their brand new location in Mandeville and continued success at their location in Covington.

Without Robert Sturcken at the Center Of Performing Arts, I probably wouldn’t have been able to play half of the gigs I’ve played in the last couple of years. Jewel’s Cigar and Briar is a great place to sit, relax and catch up, and it’s sometimes difficult to start the day without stopping in to St. John’s Coffeehouse. The list would certainly not be complete without Rosemary’s Closet, who has supplied a good portion of Chelsea’s wardrobe, as well as mine, and Brooks’ Bike Shop, who keeps our bikes in order. Jerry Braswell was helpful in CW’s growth, and we wish a good, full recovery to him. Thanks to the Covington Business Association for promoting downtown Covington, and maybe 2016 will be the year that the CBA can step up and act as an even greater liaison between the City and businesses.

STAA Opens “Other Voices, Other Rooms” Saturday for White Linen Night

Published by:

STAA Roy Pfister other voices other rooms 8-12-15The St. Tammany Art Association presents a new exhibition “Other Voices, Other Rooms” opening Saturday, August 15 with a reception from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m during Covington White Linen Night.

The exhibit will feature the combination of period antiques and decorative accessories in concert with the impressionistic artwork of nationally recognized artist, Roy Pfister. Fine furniture of a different time and place carries the voices of the past into rooms accentuated with the vibrancy of paintings to create a harmony for life today. Through the vignettes assembled for the exhibit, the furniture of History Antiques & Interiors paired with the paintings of Pfister create a “voice” for the expression of the beauty of form and function. Live music provided by Timothy Achan Gates.

Roy Pfister’s art style has been likened to impressionistic realism with a traditional approach. Although he specializes in graphite, pastel and oil portraits, he has won many awards for his landscape paintings. Trained at Tulane University and New Orleans Academy of Art, Pfister studied under such noted instructors as John McCrady, Leonard Flettrich and John Ambrose. Most noted for his portraits of children, his reputation as an artist has grown nationally and his portraits and landscapes hang in the homes of many families throughout the United States and Europe.

Growing up, Lisa Wilson, owner of History Antiques & Interiors in Covington, LA and Charleston Antiques in Charleston, SC, was immersed in an environment of art and history by family members who taught her the love of antiques. She earned degrees in History and Art History from the University of Mississippi. After a career as a teacher, Lisa opened History Antiques and Interiors in 2012 with a vision to showcase the beauty of adding unique historical furniture and  antique accessories into modern home settings.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, call (985) 892-8650 or email
