Group celebrates reopening of Houma Art Gallery after Hurricane Ida


The Terrebonne Guild of Fine Arts reopened its gallery at 630 Bélanger Street in Houma after the building was damaged by Hurricane Ida.

The Terrebonne Guild of Fine Arts will celebrate its reopening after Hurricane Ida and the return of its annual Christmas art market with a “Grand Reopening” reception on Saturday.

It is planned for 1 p.m.-7 p.m. at the 630 downtown art gallery, 630 rue Bélanger in Houma. A ribbon cutting will take place at 2 p.m. The event will feature food, a space to take holiday photos, an illuminated art exhibit, door prizes and lots of homemade art and gifts for sale.

“Our gallery is a bit like home, at least for us. It’s heartwarming and we always have a pot of coffee with us,” said Margaret Chouest, president of the guild. “We hope people can come in and slowly take their time and look at what we’ve created.”

The price of the art will vary, but the hand-painted ornaments on the inner guild Christmas tree cost $ 5 each.

The guild had closed its gallery in September after the damage caused by Ida. The building needed new ceilings, floors, attic insulation and other repairs.

The gallery reopened on November 19, although it did not return to 100%. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. From December 20 to 24, it will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
