The Knights of Columbus Council 6872 held their 3rd Annual Fall Art Show titled: “The Beauty of Life” on Friday the 21st through Sunday the 23rd.
The show had 31 artists entered with a variety of works in different mediums.
Knight and artist, Norman Weinstein, said, “We had a lot of talented artists, who were new to this year’s show, from different areas of both La. and Miss.”
Event Co-Chair and fellow Knight, Richert Mahony, said, “The works shown were definitely of high caliber. We are excited about the quality of artists and the works that have come through our doors this year. This event makes it possible to help donate to “Sav-a-Life,” our local pregnancy crisis center. They make such a difference in our community and this show is an important part of seeing this work continued.”
