John Hodge, Pottery Artist Extraordinaire

In 2009, a special awards ceremony was held at the Louisiana Heart Hospital in Lacombe. It was the fourth annual St. Tammany Parish President's Art Awards. 

The St. Tammany Parish President's Commission on Cultural Affairs named Covington artist John Hodge as its "Visual Artist of the Year." In this short video, Commission vice chairman Stephen Cefalu introduced Hodge, who tells a little of his work, his philosophy, and his thankfulness for the way St. Tammany Parish recognizes and appreciates artists.
