The Drawings in the exhibition are a part of a larger project "Marsh Views" which Fleming has been working on for the past three years. The goal of "Marsh Views" was to gather visual data of the marsh through photographic images, conduct research with wetland experts, and produce a series of drawings about land loss and restoration. Fleming used aerial maps of the marsh spanning from 1998 to 2010 as source material for her drawings.  The project was part of a collaboration with the Louisiana Environmental Research Center (LERC) and funded by a US Department of Agriculture - Natural Resources Conservation Grant #68-7217-10-006. 

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm.  For more information contact the Arts Council at 337-439-2787.
