Last Saturday’s Artwalk had a record attendance, and if you weren’t able to make it downtown and need an eye full of art, stop by City Club in River Ranch Tuesday, April 13, from 5:30-7:30pm. Curator Jeffery McCullough at Gallery at City Club stated as of this month the gallery is not just southwest Louisiana artists; it will now feature artists from the entire South.
The opening reception will have food and drinks by the chefs of City Club. Art, food and drinks in one location — sounds good to me! For the April, May and June show, the gallery will feature art by: Jill Tauzin Broussard, Anne Mcleod, Frankie DeMelo, Mallory Page Chastant, Kathy Dumesnil, Joy Gardner, Caroline Chunn McCarthy, Julie Breaux and Hope Hebert. It’ll be an incredible show, so be sure to stop by!
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again, it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to go public this year.
