Taking home first-place honors were Joette LeBlanc, works under glass; Amber Hilbun, works not under glass; Mary Harris, photography; and A. Lynne Jones, miniatures. Liz Harman, president of the Arts Council of Livingston Parish, judged the pieces.

Nine DSFAA members submitted more than 40 pieces to the exhibit, which is on display at the Denham Springs-Walker Library, located at 8101 U.S. 190 (Florida Boulevard), through the month of October. Works were completed through a variety of mediums, including watercolors, acrylics, oils, photography and miniatures.

An 8-minute video of the exhibit can be found on the “Denham Springs Fine Arts Association” Facebook page.

The Denham Springs Fine Arts Association is an independent organization of artists — or anyone who loves art — that gathers to discuss new art forms and techniques from local artists and other guest speakers.

The club welcomes visitors and new members to attend its monthly meetings, typically held at the Denham Springs-Walker Branch of the Livingston Parish Library.
