Final week to catch the Curio-ddities Exhibit

LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - The art exhibit, Curio-ddities, is coming to an end.

The Curio-ddities exhibit has been put on by the Henning Cultural Center since March.

The theme behind Curio-ddities is to showcase different unique art from people in Southwest Louisiana. However, it is not limited to just people in SWLA. There are a few out-of-state submissions.

In the art show, you can expect to see over 250 different pieces from roughly 40 to 45 different artists.

Assistant Director Kat Godsey decide to curate this idea because she was worried about the status of the local artists.

“We knew that we wanted to kind of get started, get back into the swing of things, get back into some sense of normalcy, but we were concerned about our local artists and whether or not they would have gallery-ready artwork so soon after everything that happened last year,” Godsey said.

Godsey decided to incorporate different forms of art: 2D art, 3D art, heirlooms and more.

The exhibit will be open from Tuesday, May 4 through Friday, May 8 from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
