The Denham Springs Fine Art Association March meeting will be held Monday night March 4, 2013 at The Old City Hall at 115 Mattie Street located in the Denham Springs Antique District. This months guest speaker will be Michael Verrett and I think it will be a quite interesting demo. Below is a little information on his background.
