|Arts council honors locals|
The Northeast Louisiana Arts Council held its 25th annual arts awards late last week, recognizing a number of local people within the community.
The event was held Thursday, Feb. 25 at the Masur Museum of Art.
It was sponsored by Community Trust Bank.
During the event, Arts Council president and CEO Tommy Usrey honored photographers Brad Arender, Scarlett Hendrix and Neil Johnson for their work in photographing the "Elders," a group of local people who shared their stories about the Great Depression and New Deal Era in north Louisiana.
Recipients of this years awards are as follows:
— The BART Award: Louisiana Plastics Industries represented by John Mark Wilhite, nominated by Twin City Ballet;
— Edmund Williamson Award: Leaia Caver Alsup, nominated by Twin City;
— Volunteer of the Year Award: Patti Wilhite nominated by Twin City Ballet;
— Mary Lee Milam Award: Mare Brennan, founder of DeltaStyle Magazine.
The awards are held each year to honor businesses, volunteers and artists who have "significantly impacted the cultural landscape of northeast Louisiana."
In 1985, to acknowledge these contributions, the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council established awards of merit which are presented on an annual basis.
Arts organizations from 11 parishes in northeast Louisiana nominate businesses, volunteers, and artists whose contributions have impacted the arts in their communities and the region at large.
The BART Award was established in 1985. Winners of this award are businesses or corporations that have made philanthropic contributions which have significantly impacted the success of the cultural programs of organizations in northeast Louisiana.
The Edmund Williamson Artist of the Year Award is given each year to the artist credited with bringing art to the masses.
The Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes an individual's service to the development of the cultural arts in the community.
The Mary Lee Milam Award is the only award whose recipient is chosen exclusively by the Arts Council's Board of Directors. Recipients of the award must have actively displayed enthusiasm, leadership, initiative and dedication to benefit arts organizations and the cultural community in northeast Louisiana.
