ART on 45 - Auction for NCLAC


For ART ON 45, forty amazing artists from Louisiana and beyond make one piece of art on or with a 45rpm record for a juried exhibition and for an exclusive book about the collection.

Fall/Winter 2018-209 Billboard Art Contest Winner

NCLAC is pleased to announce the winner of our fall/winter Driggers Outdoor Billboard Art Contest. Louisiana Tech MFA Candidate Hannah Fulton submitted the winning design with her watercolor and ink piece titled Hive. The artwork will be on display for six months on a frontage road billboard near Temple Baptist Church in Ruston, LA. The decision was made by votes from NCLAC's Exhibitions Committee, where they viewed each submission without titles or artists' names.

Congratulations to Hannah on her winning submission, and thank you to Driggers Outdoor for its generous support of the arts.


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.
