1911 City Hall Presents Edward Woods Exhibition

The City of Lake Charles will present Poetry of Color, by Edward Woods at Historic City Hall Arts and Cultural Center. The exhibition will open with a reception hosted by Mr. Woods on Thursday, May 24 from 5:30-8pm.

Woods was drawn to art at an early age. In the 4th grade, he attended art classes for gifted children at a college in Michigan, where he was born. Later, his family moved to Iowa, Louisiana where he attended middle and high school. Although he had no further training, he surrounded himself with learning and researching art. After serving in the Navy, he returned home and his interest in art was reignited. Woods said, “I love to capture movement, motion, color, depth and atmosphere through the poetry of paint and art media. The excitement is in seeing the piece evolve as I push forward to create something that didn’t exist before.” Poetry of Color will hang through July 21. 

Historic City Hall is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Admission is free, but donations are gladly accepted.  For more information, please call 491-9147 or visit
