CAMALOU STUDIO If you're looking for a piece to match your living room sofa, then you probably won't wind up with one of Lou's creations. If, however, your definition of art includes words like "thought-provoking," or even "shocking," then his work is bound to invoke a response. His pieces can best be described as wild, vital, and emotionally charged.

Lou has exhibited at galleries from Alaska to New York and states in between. In 1969, he had his very first one man show at Seacliff Art Gallery in Long Island, New York. Since then he has participated in showings in numerous Alaskan galleries including House of Kybor, The Gathering, Grundy's Gallery, Scanlons, as well as participating in a mask show at the Stonington Gallery in Seattle, and Objects of Bright Pride in New York. In 1990, KTOO television in Juneau, Alaska, featured Lou as a guest on "Conversations."
