Support Your Local Artists

Su Stella
Two of the best people Hurricane Katrina blew up from the Gulf Coast are Su Stella and Curt Harville. The artists now have a live work space in Highland where they do blacksmithing, cold and hot glass work, metal work, painting, and more.

This fall they will be vending, teaching and demonstrating their different disciplines at venues as varied as the Barnwell Memorial Garden and Art Center, LSUS Pioner Heritage Center Pioneer Day and the Highland Jazz and Blues Fest at Columbia Park.

You can purchase their jewelry in the artspace giftshop in downtown (by the way, artspace will be hopping Friday night with the opening of the Clyde Connell retrospective).

Hi Kathryn,

Heads up! Shreveport's Highland neighborhood was just mentioned in an online "Business Week" article as being among the nation's top "up and coming" neighborhoods:

Click the next-to-last photo on the list. The photo they used was all wrong, but the written part was pretty good.
