Wednesday, October 23, from 4 -6 p.m. at Hill­iard University Art Museum.

A book signing to celebrate the release of a local artist's first book of art, Soul Exchange: The Paintings of Dennis Paul Williams

Dennis Paul Williams, both a musician and artist, grew up in St. Martinville, La., where Louisiana's Creole culture introduced him to French and West African aesthetics and values. Driven as a child to draw, paint, and explore artistic materials, Williams embraced his Creole heritage, where every aspect of life revolves around faith, celebration, and beauty.

Soul Exchange presents over one hundred works by the artist and also includes a portrait of Williams by book editor Philip Gould as well as an overview of his art by former Louisiana Poet Laureate Darrell Bourque. Cop­ies of the book will be available for purchase for $45.00 at the event and Williams will be on hand to autograph them.
