Charles Tigrett, professional photographer for over 40 years and happily married to a great ‘Nasty Woman’ (and artist) for almost that long : ) !  We were in business together (Imagery Marketing), from 1979 to 2010-ish. My 15 years at the newspaper was as sole marketing photographer, and included multi-media, which became our specialty in our new business, in addition to print and broadcast for major corporate clients – from 1979-2010-ish. Following the 2009 crash, many long-time clients suffered serious setbacks – so we did, too. During an earlier recession, we took part of our large screening room in our offices on Union, and turned it into a specialty retail showroom for Italian bicycles, of all things, my lifelong passion. It was a hit, did great! So we did both successfully for many years…and still cycling (some), too. We’ve been very fortunate.


Another divine Pickwick sunset.

Louisiana based artist, Loveday Funck started her career in art later in life, but her love of history and whimsy have been a constant interest. Making use of a talent for the manipulation of digital images, she creates a twisted fairy tale world, finding her inspiration in the centuries old buildings and graveyards of New Orleans and the unique sites that dot the Acadiana landscape.

Her art has been recognized in international juried exhibitions as well as competitions. Her work often amuses as her sense of humor is revealed in juxtaposing the world of formal, Victorian era photography with the portraits of modern pets or other animals.

Working from antique imagery and her own photography, Loveday Funck turns her eye to the intersection of history and the fantastic. Combining the surreal experience of her heart with the images of historic Louisiana she creates a whimsical, colorful, and usually macabre world. Come and partake in its skewed sacrament.”


I am participating because this is a truly critical time in our country’s history. We need to do whatever we can to help preserve our democracy.
