See his work

Carlton Scott Sturgill - "Inspired by the bedroom communities of the Midwest, my work examines the conflict between our need to push our individual sexual boundaries and our longing to appear as ambassadors of a white-picket-fence America... My paintings, sculptures and mosaics use the vernacular of the American heartland to scratch the surface of suburban pretense, exploring the compulsion to both veil ourselves behind the facade of the American Dream and our desire to expose our most intimate moments through the wormhole of electronic media."

Know-It-All Trivia Night & Biz Showcase
This year StayLocal is changing up our SourceNOLA finale event! Instead of listening to a few experts speak, we’re going to see how many experts are in the room. For this night of trivia, we’ll break into teams and test your knowledge on business topics from historic New Orleans businesses, to professional etiquette, to national economic trends. There will be prizes, music, food, networking and area business-to-business (B2B) businesses will be tabling to show off their services.
