Sense of Place Traveling Exhibition

The Photographs exhibited in this display are the top twelve images from the 2016 exhibition “A Sense of Place: Contemporary Images of Lincoln Parish.” Each Photo received a Juror’s Purchase Award.  The Photographs are now the property of the North Central Louisiana Arts Council (NCLAC) and are displayed in different venues throughout the region.

The exhibit may be viewed during regular business hours.

The images from this exhibition have been reproduced and made into sets of postcards titled, “Postcards From the Parish.”  Postcards may be purchased at the Ruston-Lincoln Parish Convention and Visitor’s Bureau or at the Dixie Center for the Arts.  Cost of the postcards are $22 and all proceeds from the sale of the postcards benefit NCLAC.
