Artist of the Year 2018 / Lewis vincent elementary students
The Arts Council of Livingston Parish would like to congratulate Kristine Stone for being selected as the Artist of the Year for 2018.  Kristine has over a decade experience in photography and specializes in food photography.  Her favorite thing is to capture food in motion.  She also studies various culinary topics, so she not only knows how to photograph food, but how to prepare it. 
ACLP will host an exhibit during the month of March showcasing Kristine’s photography in the lobby of the gallery.
Also for the month of March we will exhibit children’s artwork from Mrs. Tiffani Ellis’ third grade class at Lewis Vincent Elementary.  The class took part in a 5 lesson art study that began this fall.  The project was sponsored by the ACLP with an anonymous grant.
