On May 10th, resident artist Megan Singleton will be participating in the first annual Wetlands Art Tour, a daylong event in the St. Claude Arts District showcasing art, performance and activism related to coastal erosion and wetlands restoration in Louisiana.  Be sure to check out her show at Byrdies Gallery at 2442 St. Claude from 6-9 pm!
More information about the Wetlands Art Tour, including events and schedules, can be found on its website.


While at ASITW, Megan is continuing her research of invasive plants and using them to make the paper seen in her "pulp paintings," at right. The images are based on infrared aerial photography of the Louisiana landscapes that she has pulled the plant material from.www.megansingleton.com

On May 4th, from 4-8 pm, she'll be holding a workshop at the New Orleans Community Print Shop, where participants will learn paper making with plants. Megan will be discussing all of the steps involved in producing paper as well as the different plants suitable for creating beautiful, textured paper.

Give NOLA Day

Give NOLA Day is an event hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to support non profit organizations within the region. The event, from midnight on May 6 to midnight on May 7, allows any one wishing to donate funds to any of the over 300 non profits involved, including A Studio In The Woods, to do so during this time. 
This event is unique because in addition to money donated directly additional "lagniappe" dollars will be donated by the GNOF and their sponsors.
This event is in coordination with a national event called Give Local America, where foundations across America are asking communities to give back.
We encourage you to support the Studio as well as any other organizations involved on May 6.
Update: Here is the link for the donation page which will be active on May 6.
