Oil & Fire on the Front Porch


Art on the Front Porch at River Region Art Gallery will feature art with Oils & Fire on November 1st and November 2nd respectively. This free program is part of the mission of River Region Art Association which is to promote the artists and enhance the arts in the community by introducing art through demos.

Sylvia Rochester of Belle Rose will create in oils using an alla prima method which is an Italian phrase meaning “painted solely wet in wet” and usually is finished in one sitting. She will have a display of her Louisiana art to delight the viewers from 12-4 p.m. Sylvia has a studio right in the swamps at Bayou Carne and claims she just has to look out the window for inspiration.
