Teen Photographers Embrace Louisiana’s Equine Heritage
The photographs of the 3-C Cowgirls photography group are selected for display at the Paramount Room of Calcasieu Marine National Bank during the annual Spring Art Walk in Lake Charles
Dionne believes the key to her success has been her own experience training and showing her own horses. “I love capturing the beauty of the relation between the horse and rider as well preserving the culture and heritage shared by all equestrians,” said Dionne. She has ties to Gray Ranch in Vinton, one of the oldest working ranches in Louisiana. Dating back to the early 1800s, the ranch was the focus of the 3-C Cowgirls’ photography shows this past summer. The Cowgirls are planning to expand their Images of the Gray Ranch show with a fall 2019 show at the Brimstone Museum in Sulphur.
“Time stops for no one, but the ability to freeze it and share it with people is something I love doing,” said Dionne, whose photos were on display this year at the Art Associates Gallery in Lake Charles.
