The North Central Louisiana Arts Council has announced a new exhibition by the artist Dianne Douglas.
The paintings, featuring colorful landscapes and are on display now through March 1 at the Dixie Center for the Arts lobby.
Douglas started painting watercolors at an early age in her hometown of Wewoka, Oklahoma, under the tutelage of her father, Stephen. She continued to paint during her teaching career at Louisiana Tech University, where she holds the title of Professor Emerita of Hispanic Literature and Language.
Roscoe was thrown from a car at the shelter when he was a small puppy. He was almost hairless and had mange and was extremely thin. Now he is healthy and happy. He gets along well with all the other dogs and loves to play with balls and frisbees. Adoption fees are $65. Call 251-DOGS for more information. See all the animals up for adoption at the 4Paws shelter, located at 290 Rodeo Road, just south of Tech Farm Road. The office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday or by appointment.
It was an overcast day but that didn’t stop our young soccer players from coming out to the center circle for a game of soccer with their wackiest of socks on. We saw mismatched, stripes, Hello Kitty, bright orange, polka-dotted, super hero, chevron pattern and safety yellow socks, just to name a few. It was a site for sore eyes.
We even saw a few parents and players that participated in the Color Me for a Cure 5K earlier that morning that were sprinkled with colorful powder.
Put together motivated high-school students with equally motivated college students at a weeklong educational camp, and the sky’s the limit.
