October Exhibition: “Cool October Art” running October 18-Nov 8. Twin Steeples is proud to present an exhibition of two painters, Sally Caraway (New Orleans) and Bruce Hume (Hammond) as well as sculptures by Otto Ochs (Hammond). Caraway’s work is a carefully rendered surreal mix of local landscapes and animals used as symbols of personal mythology. Hume’s paintings are beautiful impressionistic explorations of scenes familiar to painter’s life. Ochs’ sculptures are carefully sanded wooden mediations of life, both its exalting freedoms and limitations. On display at Twin Steeples Creative Arts Center in Ponchatoula, Wed-Sat 10am-4pm.
