Shopping

Cleoma Falcon Post Card Art is a precious resource in St. Landry Parish, and it is not just music, dance, and cuisine. Visual art is plentiful here, from murals honoring ancestors and music to colorful, oversized fiddles created by area artists. In many of these public exhibits, artists and businesses joined forces to bring concepts to life, enriching the quality of life in local communities and highlighting a living cultural economy. In fact, many area artists sell their pieces in the local boutiques, galleries, and antique stores. Find fused glass, handmade jewelry, greeting cards, canvases big or small, and so much more. 

(Postcard on the left is made by local artist, Gabrielle Savoy. Available for sale at the Savoy Music Center.) 

St. Landry Parish is proud to have six Cultural Districts: Deux Bayous - Arnaudville, Eunice, Grand Coteau, Opelousas, Sunset, and Washington. In these designations, visitors reap part of the benefits as sales of original artwork are tax-free. The Louisiana Cultural Districts Program was created by Act 298 of the 2007 Regular Session of the legislature and is administered through the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism . The primary goal of this initiative is to spark community revitalization based on cultural activity through tax incentives. Sales tax is waived on original works of art. As of July 1, 2014, the total number of Cultural Districts is 75, in 47 towns and 30 parishes. 

Tax exemption repealed until 2018.
