Congratulations to Nancy Pratt, the Arts Evening 2022 Cover Artist. “Her Rhapsody” has been selected as the winning submission for the Arts Evening 2022 Poster.

Nancy will be at Green Oaks Apothecary during Arts Evening, one of the largest and most celebrated cultural festivals on the Northshore. The event will feature the works of over 100 artists and art organizations at 40 locations throughout Olde Towne Slidell, live entertainment from bands and entertainers, casual and fine dining at local restaurants and antique and boutique shopping.

Nancy Pratt is a multimedia artist and teacher, dance instructor and choreographer, and event coordinator who currently resides on the Northshore of Louisiana. Art mediums include acrylic on canvas, stenciling, collage, photo projects, painted clothing and shoes and holiday headpieces/fascinators-she loves mixed media! She has had the fortune of being selected to do a mural for the City of Slidell as part of the Celebrate Slidell series which is located at the STFPD1 Headquarters. Fancy Nancy was also asked to do a floral remembrance mural for Bella Style Salon which you can see on the exterior of their Olde Towne location and where you can also find her art on walls of the interior too.

Her latest body of work, reflected in the chosen Arts Evening poster, starts with a base of vintage sheet music collaged and painted on canvas, then covered with a portrait of a celebrated music artist in liquid acrylic and sealed for protection. The series is called “Rhapsody in Hues.” Inspired by music icons, the title “rhapsody” meaning: an effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling. And “hues” describes each painting having their own monochromatic colors; all the colors (tones, tints, and shades) of a single hue. She works from her home studio, showroom and through Etsy but plans on having a local shop in the near future.

The Arts Evening festivities take place on Saturday, March 19, 2022, from 5 to 9 p.m. in Olde Towne Slidell. Signed prints of the Arts Evening poster will be sold during the event.

“I am honored to be selected as the Arts Evening poster artist for 2022. During the past few years since our last event, I’ve grown and evolved so much as a person and an artist. Through play, practice and persistence, I’ve developed a new body of work, ‘Rhapsody in Hues,’ that I am eager to share at Arts Evening,” said Pratt. “I am so thankful for the love and support from my family, local community and loyal customers that I appreciate this opportunity to represent Slidell and share my passion for art and culture.”
