Next Saturday, May 26, 2012, is a big day for Coleman Organ Photography. It’s our first Arts Market. I say “our” because of the efforts and encouragement of many friends, family and photography enthusiasts. You know who you are and thanks a million!

The Arts Market is hosted by the Arts Council of New Orleans. It’s held on the last Saturday of the month at Palmer Park, a large, open and easily accessible park at the corner of South Carrollton and South Claiborne Avenues. The Market features booths with handmade art and crafts of all kinds: photography, painting, water color, jewelry and many other unusual and interesting creations by local and regional artists. There’s food and music in a laid back atmosphere. Stroll from booth to booth, chat with the artists and take it easy. It’s what Saturdays are for. And parking has been easy each time I visited as folks come and go.

I hope you come on out, talk some photography and soak up the great atmosphere. See you at the park!
