“A Bird in Hand” exhibit openes this month at NuNu’s in Arnaudville. The exhibit by artist Janelle Hebert will run on Thursday-Sunday, from 11a.m. to 4p.m., all month, and continuing during August, ending on August 28th. The artist reception is set for Saturday, July 9, 2022, from 11a.m. to 4p.m. at NuNu, 1510 Bayou Courtableau Hwy, Arnaudville, LA 70512.

Janelle Hebert is a mixed-medium artist who for more than 20 years honed her drawing and painting skills as a New Orleans Jackson Square artist. She and her husband, Jean Gaye, moved to her native St. Martinville following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. After discovering NUNU collective, they sold their St. Martinville home and purchase another in Arnaudville. Hebert is one of the founders of the collective’s Fabric Friday workdays, and is an evolving artist who through this exhibit demonstrates her sculpting talents by combining paper, textile, clay and painting to create a collection of unique bird sculptures and mobiles.

“Being a multimedia artist has given me the opportunity to express my emotions and impressions of all of these experiences and memories into my work. Using paint, fabric, encaustic, paper, wood and clay is necessary to achieve the texture and uniqueness I seek. In this exhibit, my work is an intersection of the animals I create with the colors of a sunrise and sunset,” Hebert states.

The “A Bird in Hand” exhibit concludes Aug. 28.
