Mallory Page Chastant’s contemporary paintings were showcased at the Winter Opening Reception at Rue Du Pont Galerie and Studio in Breaux Bridge. The charming Louisiana-based artist, who divvies her time between her Julia Street gallery in New Orleans and Seaside, Fla., mingled with art lovers and discussed her muted modern style. Fans from Lafayette and beyond admired her works while sipping wine and nibbling on tasty dips, marinated veggies and sweet treats. Seen browsing in the gallery were Elizabeth and Pit Hesterly, New Zealand-bound Superbowl XLIV ad writer Brett Landry and parents Beth and Leo Landry, gallery owner/artist Lue Svendson and exhibiting artist Kelli Kaufman with hubby Henry.
