Ann Clement has been chosen as the 2014 Artist of the Year by the St. Charles Art Guild.

The guild features presentations by guest artists at its meetings at 9:30 a.m. on the first Tuesday of every month, September through May, at St. Charles United Methodist Church, 1905 Ormond Blvd., Destrehan.

The group calls attention to its members’ artworks through its Artist of the Month contest, with three works displayed each month at the Southern Latte Cafe, 13322 U.S. 90, Luling.

It provides art experiences such as paint-outs, field trips, exhibit opportunities and workshops. Many of these programs are supported by grants from the River Region Arts and Humanities Council, the St. Charles Women’s Club and Louisiana state decentralized art grants.
