Artists Help Make Festival International Successful
On Thursday night, we concentrated our efforts to the stages and the food booths, but on Friday, within the first 15 minutes of arriving, we went to the art vendor area. It was apparent that Louisiana, and, in particular, Acadiana has more than a pirogue-full of artists! Cajun Clay, Jerilyn’s Glass, SilverSister Art, Alexis Braud, from Cutoff to Alexandria, from Lake Charles to New Orleans, there was beautiful Louisiana artwork galore!
Shannon, in searching for a Mother’s Day gift, came across the Cocodrie booth, featuring Cajun Stained Glass, and saw the egret painting. ‘Cajun Stained Glass’ is actually cypress-framed window screens, painted with Louisiana wildlife, the brainchild of Carol Thibodeaux. (She came up with the idea after a Mardi Gras trip to Mamou, where she saw the revellers’ masks made of screen). Shannon’s mom finds the egrets to be one of the most peaceful images on the Cajun landscape, so it was a no-brainer: the perfect Mother’s Day gift!
