Art enthusiasts reveled at Poydras Home on October 30 and November 1 for a two-day celebration of renowned Louisiana and regional artists, including James Michalopolous and George Rodrigue. Both the Patron Party and Art Show featured myriad artwork for auction, fabulous food and libations.
The Patron Party on October 30, chaired by Katherine Miller Determan and honorary chairs Winx and Jim McCarthy, hosted the Big Easy Buddies performing “Under the Boardwalk” as guests enjoyed dining selections from local favorites including Arnaud’s, Creole Creamery, Galatoire’s, St. James Cheese Company, Vincent’s Italian Cuisine and more. Attendees meandered around the lawn and historic halls of Poydras Home for an early peek at the exhibition of hanging Juried Art and Exhibits.
The Art Show, which was free and open to the public, included more than 100 Exhibiting Artists. Mel Buchanan served as Art Show Judge; Art Show Committee Chairmen were Anne Buescher and Jordana Civetti. More than 300 patrons attended the Art Show and raised approximately $120,000 for Poydras Home, a nationally acclaimed continuing care retirement community.
