Beautiful, bright colors and warm scenes are displayed through seven galleries participating in a downtown gallery crawl Thursday night. 

Downtown Arts Alliance Communications Consultant Ann Bloxom Smith says special events include a poetry reading from Ferrell Mercer and an exhibit showcasing the Poverty Point World Heritage site.  "The collection of photography of the site  by Jenny Ellerbe is amazing," says Smith.

Artist Caroline Youngblood is featured at MAD Gallery.  Her exhibition includes images of Louisiana nature.  "It's a continuation of my Southern themes.  Cotton stalks, oyster shells, and spring-blooming flowers have caught my interest," said Youngblood.

Food is provided at several galleries during the crawl.  A Downtown River Jam brings live music to the area for guests to enjoy as you make your way to each of the participating art galleries.
