Come Saturday the gallery at Lounge will be home to a collection of eclectic artwork. A stable of artists filled with talent, each unique. Each represented by the talented Jeffery McCullough.
Some of those artists have been featured in these very pages (remember the beautiful piece from Kelli Kaufman in November's IND Monthly? or Mallory Page gracing the IND's cover some month's ago?) and many have found their way into the homes of tastemakers in Lafayette and across the country thanks to representation by Jeffery.
Jeffery, owner of Jeffery McCullough Art & Design Consulting, has long been a go-to for clean intelligent and innovative work in the realm of interior design and in 2009 began serving as an agent for artists. Seven of those talents will appear in the gallery on Jefferson Street. None are pieces to be missed.
A reception during Art Walk kicks things off from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday evening in the Lounge Gallery next to Tsunami including artists Joy Gardner of Mobile, Candace Greer of Lafayette, Kelli Kaufman of Lafayette, Caroline Chunn McCarthy of Mobile, Linda Moncla of Lafayette, Mallory Page of New Orleans, and Laurence Young of Provincetown, Mass.
David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
