The first Art Walk of the fall season this past Friday attracted art hounds and connoisseurs to downtown’s French Quarter. Galleries opened their doors to milder weather and invited passers-by to peruse the latest works from local artists. Nathan Durfee’s The Soft Embrace of a Porcelain Night drew a large crowd to Robert Lange Studios.

Doug Walters provided the song “Little Ava” from his new album Vagabond. His music is available at myspace.com/jamesdougwalters.
