Several years ago local professional artist Frank Kelley Jr. created the Youth Arts Initiative out of what he called a “necessity.”
“Kids were not being exposed to enough art in school and so after doing some research I started the Youth Arts Initiative,” Kelley said. “Plus, it was a way for me to give back.”
Kelley has instructed art workshops through the initiative with thousands of children in the public school systems of cities like Chicago, New Orleans and Detroit, but in more recent years has come home to support the arts among the local community.

Slaughter, Jessica NEW 13.jpg

Let’s use this week to share some of our “thankful list” from the NCLAC office.
First, I am thankful for dedicated community partners who support the arts in our region.
One of these is Bank of Ruston, who holds an annual art exhibition each December featuring regional artists. This year’s show will feature Hooshang Khorasani and Dianne Springer.
Hooshang is a painter. Whether viewing his romantic florals, or his racing horse images that he’s nationally known for, all of his work vibrates with his dynamic color palette and mark making.

GRAMBLING — The Grambling State Lady Tigers opened their home season with a scoring parade Thursday night as they blasted past Tougaloo 98-59 at the Frederick Hobdy Assembly Center.
Junior Yosha Watson led the way for the Lady Tigers with 38 points long with 10 steals and three assists.
Don’t be fooled by the score, though, as the Lady Bulldogs kept things tight early on, building as much as an eight-point lead with 16:51 remaining in the first half and staying on top until Grambling’s Shakierya McClendon made a layup at the 9:09 mark of the opening stanza to knot things up at 21-21.

Voters should consider voting early this week

Early voting for the Dec. 6 general election starts Saturday. We echo Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler’s suggestion that all eligible voters consider voting early.
“This is always a busy time of year with families traveling and time off of work, but it’s important not to forget about the Dec. 6 election, especially with the congressional runoffs as well as many important local races. By casting your ballot early, you can vote on your own schedule when it’s most convenient,” Schedler said.
