The Lincoln Parish Library Events Center is proud to host three local artists in an art exhibit of realism. These three Louisiana realists — Peter Jones, Albino Hinojosa and Jerry Berg — will be honored at an opening reception from 2-4 p.m. Sunday.
The show called Traditions for the 21st Century — Three Louisiana Realists, will run from Aug. 22 to Oct. 14.
By definition, realism depicts art that emphasizes actuality or ordinary visual experiences. Scenes are painted as they are or might be experienced in everyday life.

Traditionally, vegetable gardens and orchards have been segregated from the rest of the ornamental garden. This was because their purpose was solely for food production. Little concern was given to how attractive these plantings were.
However, many vegetable and fruit varieties are beautiful and can be used in the landscape in aesthetically pleasing ways just like ornamentals. The movement to incorporate food plants throughout the garden or to make plantings of edible plants as attractive as possible is called “edible landscaping.”
