Plein Air on the Teche

By Linda Tancs

Picture this: a juried art exhibition amidst stately oak trees draped in Spanish moss framed by a classic antebellum historic house.  If that doesn’t get paint brushes moving, then what will?  This weekend marks the weeklong inaugural Plein Air Competition at Shadows-on-the-Teche, a 19th century southern Louisiana plantation.  Located in New Iberia’s Main Street District on the banks of Bayou Teche, The Shadows was built in 1834 for sugar planter David Weeks and preserves 150 years of history through four generations.
