The Terrebonne Fine Arts Guild has announced an exciting array of events coming to the community through the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024!
“We have really been pushing for the last year or so to bring events back to Houma. Business had been slow and people were unhappy, and we wanted to change that,” said Janice McBride, Art Gallery Director at the Terrebonne Fine Arts Guild. “But now, everyday we see more and more people visiting our gallery and looking for art, looking for creative experiences, and having a great time. It is so important for our community to have access to artistic events like this– especially in South Louisiana, people are constantly involved in art and don’t even realize it. Our whole culture is artistic! We are so excited to bring these events to the families, kids, and individuals in our parish.”
