Lagniappe – The Art of Pat and Andre Juneau

Jeanine Taylor Folk Art presents, Lagniappe: The Art of Pat and Andre Juneau opening Saturday, August 17th from 6-9pm and running through September 15 in Historic Downtown Sanford. Steeped in the rich Acadian waters of Louisiana, this exhibit marks the Juneau family’s first solo show in a Florida gallery.

Teeming with joie de vivre, the duos brightly colored metal furniture and sculptures embody the Cajun canon. From couples dancing the fais-do-do to an alligator playing a squeezebox, the Juneaus create an artistic atmosphere of joy and vibrancy. Lagniappe, a Cajun word meaning a little something extra, demonstrates a family tradition with cultural significance.
Born in 1965 and raised in rural Louisiana, Pat Juneau recalls a childhood where making things was a natural response to being short on money. “Art is like writing a story. You write what you know. My metal work just keeps evolving,” says Juneau. He feels strongly that his work is a way of protecting and preserving his cherished Louisiana roots.
Owner Jeanine Taylor shares, “My mother’s roots went deep in Louisiana culture. As a child, I loved visiting my grandparents and relatives in Lake Charles. The word ‘lagniappe’ meant an extra donut in our bag of a dozen or an extra shrimp for our gumbo that night. My ‘lagniappe’ is introducing Pat’s son, Andre to Central Florida as they carry on their family tradition.”
This free event coincides with Sanford’s monthly Art Walk and Food Truck Fiesta.
