5 in 5 ... with Christy Boutte

This month’s five-in-five spotlight features Christy Boutte.  Christy is a local artist with strong roots in the Gulf South and its artistic community. A graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design, Christy has created art professionally for the past 15 years.  Her work has been commissioned by prominent organizations and non-profits and is showcased at her gallery in Gretna.
