2008 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival: Louisiana Marketplace - Bergeron Woodworks
These one of a kind picture frames, by David Bergeron of Bergeron Woodworks in Thibodaux, LA, are handcrafted using materials salvaged from homes and business in and around Historic New Orleans. Each represents a special part of the city's unique past, preserving its legacy.
Louisiana Marketplace features exceptional handmade crafts uniquely representing New Orleans and Louisiana’s architecture, music and culture. Through a variety of artistic mediums, offered by the state’s finest traditional and contemporary artists, it features Creole & Acadian furniture, native wildlife photography, symbolic fleur-de-lis jewelry, and more. This diverse gathering of emerging and established artisans from across the state is right at home next to the music at the Fais Do-Do stage, and ongoing traditional folk demonstrations in the Louisiana Folklife Village.
