Folk artist James Hunter's paintings are vivid in color, and his grandmother's memories of what it was like to grow up on a plantation on Cane River in Natchitoches Parish. Renowned artist Clementine Hunter, a respected self-taught folk artist, taught her grandson James Hunter how to paint in her style. So when James picked up a brush, he brought to life the images of yesteryears. Clementine Hunter, whose artwork is featured in the Smithsonian Institute and other galleries worldwide, is among the most collected folk art. Transitioning from subjects of life on a plantation, he's broadening his scope with depictions of his life.
