Page 32 of the April 08 issue ofCityLife has a groovy article about arts patronage. Writer Noma Fowler-Sandlin does a sparkling job of presenting painter Pratt Turner and the local collectors who are buying and living with his work.
Meet Turner and his supporters at an art show Saturday from 1-5 PM at DeBruhl's in the Shoppes at Bellemead, 6535 Youree Drive. Shreveport attorney Amy Greenwald is one of the folks organizing tomorrow's event.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
