Paris meets Preston at French Quarter style art show


Fri, Apr 26th, 2013
Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

Two Friends, Two Countries, Two Cameras is the motto Stacey Hildebrandt and Lynn Lutzi Léger use on their business cards to promote their photography and their art. These photographers will be offering their work at a French Quarter style art show outside of JuliaClaire Repeat Boutique on May 11th from Noon to 3:00 PM.

Stacey and Lynn are both from SE Minnesota: Stacey from Stewartville and Lynn from Byron. They have been friends “forever”. The two women share an interest in capturing memories through pictures. Lynn loves to travel and documents her travels through pictures. In 2011 Lynn moved to Paris, France to be with her husband and it only seemed natural for her to stay connected to and share her experiences with family and friends through her photographs.

Stacey has had the honor of participating in life changing moments with others through photography. Whether it be a wedding day, birth of a new baby or capturing the last memories a family has with their loved one, she has done it all. “In addition to capturing life events, photography allows us to have a glimpse into one another’s lives. It is also a way to share with others sights they may have yet to explore,” explains Lynn.

Stacey and Lynn have amazing photographs and they apply those photos to repurposed materials to create unique art. Old boards, cupboards, doors and canvas are just some of the mediums used for their art.

“When Stacey brought their photographs to my shop, I was very impressed but what really amazed me was the interesting and unique character the photos took on when they applied them to the different textures and mediums,” stated Trish Keating, owner of JuliaClaire Repeat Boutique in Preston.

“When I asked Stacey if she would like to participate in an art show at the store, she informed me that Lynn would be home in May so we scheduled the French Quarter style art event for the Saturday of Mother’s day weekend,” explained Keating.

Keating has been to New Orleans many times and decided to create an art show with a French Quarter flavor. “One of my favorite places in the French Quarter is Jackson Square. There is a black, rod iron fence that surrounds the block-sized park that the artists hang their works on. Tourists are able to view and purchase the works from the Artisans themselves. It is like an outside museum and art fair all in one” explains Keating. “I thought t .....
