Boomtown Casino and Eagle Distributing of Shreveport partners with Bossier Arts Council for WAM: (Wine, Art, & Music) on Wednesday, February 8th, 2017 from 5:30p.m – 8:00pm. This quarterly event features artwork by local artist Diana Teeters, wine tasting, food pairings, and live music performed by The Craig/Powers Duo.
The Artwork of Diana Teeters will hang at 1800 Prime Steakhouse from February 1st, 2017 until April 30th, 2017.
Diana Teeters is a nature photographer and digital artist. Her camera is her primary tool and post-processing on a computer is how Diana lays her artistic style on each image where she strives to make images that delight and inspire. Diana has had multiple careers: computer programmer, ten years as a professional bowler where she won a national women’s professional to learn 3D Animation and Video Editing.
In 2001, Diana started TriLab Productions (the name derived from her three Labrador Retrievers) and created the first volume of motion graphics called Digital Hotcakes
which was once displayed as a video background on an episode of American Idol. Today, TriLab Productions sells over 40 products online to video producers all over the world. These days, all sales are fulfilled by Amazon
Diana longed for a new artistic outlet and a connection to kindred spirits. In the summer of 2011, Diana, husband Larry, and their three Labrador Retrievers loaded up in the camper truck and headed to Missoula, Montana where she attended Rocky Mountain School of Photography for three months. In February of 2014, she started a daily photo blog on Tumblr called, “A Bloom a Day”
, where she has dedicated several hours every day to photograph and process images to share with the world. Diana is currently working on a new website where she will share her post processing techniques.
“My heart teeters between a world of intricate detail and texture to one of delicate softness and enchantment. I lean toward the real world when I find it’s intricate detail utterly beautiful.
But, more often than not, I find that a simple untouched photograph is not enough to express my artistic sensibility.”
Food and wine pairings are a collaboration by Chef Monday
and the award-winning culinary team at 1800 Prime Steakhouse
and by Eagle Distributing. The event is $25 per person.
The Artwork of Diana Teeters will hang at 1800 Prime
