In Eunice at the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center, an exhibit featuring the work of local artist Seaux N. Seau (Geraldine) Soileau is being featured through April.

Starting Saturday, February 15, the exhibit can be seen for free at the Center, located at 250 Park Avenue in Eunice.

Soileau was raised on the bank of Bayou Teche and learned to paint early; she enjoys capturing Cajun and Creole culture in folk art.

"When I've been gone a thousand years, I want my art to continue to tell the stories that brought joy, courage, and hope to my life with such a childlike enthusiasm that it causes the viewer to seek joy, courage, and hope in their own lives," said Soileau.

"I want them to see the joy that we have here in Louisiana."

The Prairie Acadian Cultural Center is open Wednesday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
