Description

This print is inspired by a chapter from the children’s novel, “Tales of the Louisiana Moon”. The print depicts the hurly-burly of the Old French Market of ancient New Orleans early Christmas Eve morning. It is filled with the hustle and bustle of fantastical last minute shoppers preparing for the old Creole custom of Reveillon which literally means “We wake” because it implies staying awake for dinner and other festivities that follow midnight mass on Christmas Eve.

The title, “Making Market” is derived from the old New Orleans French colloquialism for shopping at the Market, later updated to the modern English expression “making groceries”, still heard in New Orleans today.

Features: Sharon Case (Sharon Newman), Camryn Grimes (Cassie Newman)
