Deux Bayous Gallery Featured Artist
Deux Bayous Gallery introduces the work of Shirley Gauthier of St. Martinville – its featured artist for the months of July and August
Shirley Gauthier is a realist painter, having been seriously working on her art for over 40 years. Her love of art began at the age of four, when her teacher encouraged her after seeing a landscape drawing she had done . Fast forward to Shirley being a mother of five. Her youngest was five years old, and she jumped back in to the art world by joining a portrait drawing class. The five year old, as punishment for disobedience, was made to be the model for her at home as she practiced. Thus continued the lifelong enthusiasm for art that hasn’t diminished yet, to the present.
Deux Bayous Gallery provides emerging and working artists with gallery space for show and sale of work. It is pleased to welcome Gauthier as a member of Deux Bayous Gallery at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective – where art and culture are center stage.
“The gallery collective is a grassroots collective that encourages experimentation through support and presentation of new works by emerging fine and craft artists that focus on sustainable practices including social, economic, biophysical and cultural. Through partnership exhibitions, outreach, and related educational programming, the gallery is dedicated to the cultural enrichment of the town of Arnaudville, the Coteau Ridge are, the state of Louisiana, and the Southern region as well as French-speaking countries.”New Orleans and Shreveport.
