Vanishing Horizons
Fifth Annual Grand Isle Juried Exhibition
April 7 - Apr 15, 2007
Honorable Mention: Storm Toss, with 'a la poupee' hand coloring, 20"x16", edition of 10

The goals of the Vanishing Horizons Exhibition are to raise awareness of Louisiana's coastal erosion through the artist's eye and to encourage preservation of images of Grand Isle for future generations. Themes are related to the nature, natural beauty and potential loss of this barrier island and the surrounding wetlands. The value and need to protect the wetlands has become more apparent after realizing the destruction of Katrina's immense surge.
