Coffee house, arts council to present exhibit

On Feb. 5 from 2-4 p.m., the North Central Louisiana Arts Council and Crescent City Coffee will present “Assembling Intimacy,” an exhibition of recent work by regional artist Bess Bieluczyk.
Area residents are invited to join NCLAC and artist Bieluczyk in a look into domestic life captured through the use of photography.
When asked about her artwork Bieluczyk replied, “I've been living in the same house for over four years, the longest I've lived in one place since I moved out of my parents' house. Being settled, especially with a partner, has forced me to deal with my anxieties about domesticity and ‘settling down.’”
