Dialogue between artists manifests itself in all sorts of methods of
expression. Take the show opening at The Frame Shop & Gallery 912
in the Oil Center tonight. Photographer John Fuselier, M.D. and painter
Colleen McDaniel trade point and counterpoint in their interpretations
of Louisiana’s flora and fauna. From cane and rice field to the teaming
bird colony at Lake Martin, the pair have an artistic conversation that
speaks of the sky, the deep rooted trees and the beauty that surrounds
us in our swampy world. So venture beyond the galleries of downtown to
the Oil Center. The reception will be held tonight from 6:30-8 p.m. at
Gallery 912, 912 Coolidge Blvd. Call 235-2915 for more info.
