Caroline Chunn McCarthy at Rue du Pont Galerie et Studio

I have had a very busy 3 weeks since returning from Spain...filled with client installations and three fantastic art openings that I was co-organizer of..

First up, Caroline Chunn McCarthy at Rue du Pont Galerie et Studio:

Lue Svendson's Rue du Pont Galerie in Breaux Bridge was the perfect setting on July 10th for the opening of the July & August solo show of paintings by Caroline Chunn McCarthy of Mobile, AL. A Lafayette, LA, native, Caroline graduated from high school (Cathedral Carmel) and college (SMU) with Tim. A full-time lawyer (and mother of 3!) in Mobile, Caroline somehow finds the time to fulfill her love and passion, painting.

I became Caroline's agent in January and have since placed her work at 119 Quincy Circle in Seaside, FL, Gallery at City Club in Lafayette, LA, and Rue du Pont Galerie. All three galleries fell in love with Caroline's pieces because "they perfectly straddle the line between traditional and contemporary" and "for the color, the lightness of touch" and "the only still lifes that I've ever liked".

The beautiful Caroline Chunn McCarthy with me at the opening with two of her Contemporary Still Life Series behind us.

The opening night reception was jam packed, beautiful, filled with great art and great food..the perfect atmosphere that Lue Svendson always creates. Of the pieces that remain in the show, I was shocked that these three didn't sell opening night:

My top pick for best in the show:

Oil on Canvas
24" x 24"

Contemporary Still Life I
Oil on Canvas
36" x 48"

Still Life with Blue Vase
Oil on Canvas
22" x 28"

The show will be up through end of August..For inquiries on these pieces or others in the show, please be in touch with me via email at or with Lue Svendson at
