Avant Garden Re-Invents Bayou Road Today


by Jeffrey Hill

Today, the local cultural arts promoter and publisher, Constance, will be presenting its semi-annual curated arts market titled Avant Garden this Saturday December 17th at the Joan Mitchell Center (2285 Bayou Road). In an effort to create an alternative to the usual arts market, Constance invited more than 60 up-and-coming local artists, designers, and taste-makers to showcase their work and style in what is in essence an arts yard sale.
