17th Annual Holiday Arts Tour is November 20-23, 2014 Today's Tour stops are neighboring stores on West Park Avenue. Let's get started...
Rodeo Boutique is a fun ladies' boutique for the young-at-heart. Rodeo will be featuring Cheyenne Morrow.
Cheyenne is a native Rustonian, and a Louisiana Tech University alumni with a degree in both studio art and communication design. She works as a packaging designer, packaging baby products. Cheyenne says she fills her time "doing art and exploring the world through science, sociology and mathematics. I spend time in nature as often as possible, which is an incredible source of inspiration for my art." Cheyenne will be displaying unique ink drawings that employ repetition as a conceptual tool.
Social Bites of Ruston has recently moved to a brand new storefront facing Railroad Park. The new space is super, and of course owner Heather is still focused on making sweet treats. Artist Nicole Duet is displaying her work here for the Tour. Nicole has an amazing touch with her drawings, and her oil paintings exhibit a lovely use of light. For this exhibition, Nicole will be displaying a special series of paintings created just for her site. Be sure to stop in and check them out! Nicole is an Assistant Professor of Drawing and Painting at Louisiana Tech.
The Fabric Shop of Ruston, owned by Louise and Ron Adams, is a fabric shop of course, but also your local source for Pfaff products. I bought my Pfaff machine from them years ago, and I can attest to their great knowledge base and strong customer support. Allison Vestal will be displaying her fiber-based art works here for the Tour. Allison creates scenes of childhood memories from fabric, creating fairytale moments built with fiber and thread under her fingertips. Allison is a Communication Design student at LA Tech.
