Our Artist of the Month for the month of September at the main library is Pamela Fruge Bertrand. Pam grew up in Ville Platte and started drawing in 3rd grade. Her love of drawing offered her the opportunity to study under Waven Boone, Michael Bordelon and Mrs. Gertie Mayeaux.
Speaking of Mrs. Gertie, I am reminded of the approaching Tournoi event (10/15/23) about which she painted a marvelous rendition of “a Knight riding on a horse with his lance poised to spear the rings that symbolize the seven enemies of cotton: flood, drought, boll weevils, boll worm, silk, rayon and nylon”! We invite you to stop by the main library to see her art which on display by the Memory Catalog.
