The head makers of the Texas Avenue Makers Fair, Monty Walford (left) and Dan Keele, are a motley crew, much like the fair itself. (Sorry, gentlemen, but it's true by this picture.)

The Texas Avenue Makers Fair returns to downtown Shreveport's western edge Saturday with 160 booths featuring original and repurposed works of art.
The market will be set up around Municipal Auditorium. Organizer Dan Keele says the fall event is going back to its roots of being an organic, quirky fair. Expect bicycle tune-ups and a vintage village.
Airs Sunday, July 27 at 6 p.m. Film, music and art are often the best ways to capture the will and the mood of the people in times of turmoil. Art sometimes has the power to move millions where politics fails. So in this program we attempt to identify some prominent artistic voices in the Middle East, North Africa and in South Asia and evaluate their take on liberal ideals, on sectarian violence, on terrorism and how they're being received by audiences in both the Arab and Muslim communities and in the West.
Father-son artists Carlton Herbert, and his father, Frank Herbert, collaborated on an exhibit at Centenary College's Magale Library.

A father-son painting exhibit is on display at the Magale Library on the Centenary College campus. Frank Herbert has taught art at Kilgore College in Kilgore, Texas, for almost 30 years. His son, Carlton, is pursuing his master of fine arts degree at Stephen F. Austin State University.
Carlton Herbert said they both draw from what they see around them to create their art – snapping pictures on their phone for reference – but the similarities end there.
