The Arts Council of Livingston Parish hosted its annual Watercolor Exhibit, featuring the work of juried artists Mary Jane Hunt, Chris Bajon Jones and A. Lynne Jones, at its facility on Hummell Street in the historic Antique District of Denham Springs.

The show also included artwork from Lara Crafton’s Gator Art Club of Gray’s Creek Elementary School, with about 15 paintings by about a dozen young artists adorning the walls of the Arts Council’s largest room.
