Larose resident showcasing work in New Orleans Home & Garden Show

Larose resident Tracy Wisehart-Plaisance is among a handful of artist and designers showing their talent during the 60th Annual New Orleans Home & Garden Show in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome next weekend.

Plaisance accepted an upcycle challenge benefiting New Orleans Habitat for Humanity and her work will be available during a silent auction held during the show.

For the show, artists and designers were asked to walk through the Habitat ReStore and pick out an item or items that they could upcycle, recycle or “newcycle” – create something completely new out of building materials or household items.

For this challenge, Plaisance chose several items:
- Three sets of chairs and matching tables; each set will be auctioned as a pair
- A dinette with four chairs
- A metal glider from the 40s

All proceeds from the silent auction will go to Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans.
