The first weekend in November celebrated the 19th annual “Poydras Home Art Show and Patron Party.” Poydras Home, a nationally acclaimed continuing care retirement community, honored past presidents of its board of trustees with an evening of art and elegance previewing the weekend’s three-day art show.

Chaired by Anne Buescher, the patron party included a silent auction, entertainment, a preview of juried art and unjuried art and cuisine by Vincent’s, Arnaud’s, Galatoire’s and more. Mary Len Costa served as this year’s art show judge, while local favorite big band Swingaroux provided an evening of entertainment and dance-worthy music.

This year’s art show showcased more than 2,500 original works of art by Louisiana and regional artists, including traditional and contemporary paintings, photography, sculptures, fine jewelry and more.

All of the evening’s proceeds went to benefitting the residents and programs of Poydras Home, with the artists also donating a percentage of their sales to Poydras Home.
