The Slidell Art League honored Jo Peshek, a longtime supporter of the Slidell library, with an exhibit, “A Show for Jo,” presented in collaboration with the Friends of the Slidell Library. The show’s theme was “ ‘Iris’istible Art,” in light of Peshek’s love for the Louisiana iris.

The Best of Show winner was “Ole Crossing” by Len Heatherly, and Colleen Marquis won two Purchase Awards for “Zany Irises” and “Louisiana Irises–Pyrtania.”

The Slidell Art League meets at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at Christ Episcopal Church, 1534 Seventh St., Slidell.
