Tom Peyton Arts Fest

Leesville artists who are members of Gallery One Ellleven, are to be featured during the 53rd Annual Tom Peyton Memorial Arts Festival in Alexandria, which continues through this Sunday, May 12th. 

Local artists Isabelle Massart, Kenneth Frischkorn, Tony McDonald, Rickie Smith and Tracy Smith will all have works in the show. The Annual Arts Festival of First United Methodist Church in Alexandria was established in 1967 to encourage use and understanding of the arts as a means of healthy expression. The festival was renamed in 1980 to honor the memory of the Rev. Tom Peyton, a significant part of the community's arts and educational efforts.

The core of the Festival remains the competitive juried exhibit at the First United Methodist Church in Alexandria. For more information visit their Facebook page here.
