Houma artist continues documenting her peers

A desire to celebrate the region’s culture as illustrated through local artists’ works
has led to the showcasing of two documentary film shorts in an exhibition at the
Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.

Andrea Dupree’s “Art of the Bayou” films highlighting Darlene Eschete’s wildlife photography,
painting and activism and Joycelyn Boudreaux’s copper manipulation are included in the “A Woman’s Work”
exhibit through July 28 at the center, which is curated in partnership with Women in Film and Television Louisiana.


Currently in production are a series of experimental documentary shorts, filmed by Andrea Dupree, inspired by
South Louisiana, in the broadest sense of the term.  These are a production of "Art of the Bayou." 
Susan Talbot Hoffmann has had one such short made of her, documenting her en plein aire painting in
Bois d'Arc Iris Garden, Schriever, Louisiana.  Click here to view.
