is honored to present
Capturing the Coast
by Art Lestrade
Born and raised on the beaches of Biloxi, Arthur Lestrade has a deep-rooted affection for the Gulf Coast, its history and its beauty. His passion for art developed at an early age and, though self-taught in his youth, he went on to study Art at the University of Southern Mississippi. However, his career was found first in retail management and later in the field of nursing. Now in retirement, with his passion to paint stirring within, Art has picked up his brushes again and is capturing the sights that continue to move him today. Pulling his inspiration from beautiful scenes and sea life here along the Coast as well as from some of his travels, Art’s use of vibrant colors and skilled technique have yielded treasures for all to enjoy.
The exhibit, “Capturing the Coast” by Art Lestrade will be on display beginning October 3 through December 31 in the Joe Moran Gallery located in the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum.
A public reception will be held on
