The show, which runs from March 18 to May 10, 2008, features the work of Amy Guidry, Edward Cappel, and Marcia Dutton. “Inspirations” explores the evolution and influences on creative vision.
Amy Guidry of Lafayette is a graduate of Loyola University of New Orleans. She has received numerous awards and accolades from the art world and has shown work at galleries and museums across the country. She is known for her surreal portraits with multiple layers of color and symbolism.
Edward Cappel of Lake Charles is a graduate of LSU and attended LSU Medical School prior to pursuing a career in art. Known for boldly colored portraiture, he elevates his craft to new levels by morphing subjects into abstraction.

An artist’s reception for “Inspirations” will be held on March 29, 2008, from 6 to 8 PM. The public is invited to attend.
