Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder when it comes to art appreciation, but most would agree that the right painting can transport us to another place. Landscapes in particular have that power. Sometimes we even fall in love with a work because it takes us someplace special.
On Wednesday, from 5-7 p.m., the North Central Louisiana Arts Council (NCLAC) and 102 a bistro will present “Ruston En Plein Air,” an exciting new exhibition of landscape paintings, all from the Ruston area and Tech Farm.
I can say without hesitation that the past few days have been among the lowest and most disappointing of my 26 years as president of Louisiana Tech University. Our football team’s exclusion from a post-season bowl game was something that I could never have imagined given the success we enjoyed on the field and the way in which our players and coaches represented Louisiana Tech. Above all else, I am truly saddened for the opportunity our players, especially the 32 seniors, lost to showcase their talents and passion for being Bulldogs, one final time in front of a national audience.
