Artwork shows life before mechanization

One of Louisiana’s most famous artists died in 1988 at the age of 101, but her legacy lives on through her paintings.
Doug Gitter, an artist from Metairie, has spent the past four years working on reproducing some of Clementine Hunter’s artwork to make it affordable for everyday people.
Gitter said a desire to take artwork which was once very affordable and make it affordable again led him to create these hand-painted ceramics, based on the works of Hunter, so that others could enjoy a piece of American history.

Axton, Victoria.jpg

So, apparently, I have been living under a rock.
At 6 p.m. Oct. 10, the third annual Wiggin’ Out dinner and fundraiser will be held at Squire Creek. I never knew what Wiggin’ Out was until I met with Vicki Caskey, founder of Wiggin’ Out, last week.
This year’s event will have Tabby Soignier, 28, and Henry Futch, 14, cancer survivors, speaking. There will be a silent auction; musical entertainment, food and the signature drink called “The Pink Wig.” A lot of fun will be had, but the goal is simple — raise money to help those in need.

“(Port au Prince) has been run by my family since the beginning,” Prince said. “My grandparents had five children who worked here through high school and college. I have been helping out at the restaurant since I was 12. My grandmother would let me bus tables to keep me busy, I guess. I started waiting tables at 15.”
