Last week, Shakor Studios Art Studio and Gallery celebrated today the grand opening at its new location, 3306 Elysian Fields Avenue. Shakor, the proprietor, is a talented artist and successful entrepreneur who has shared his talents for decades with New Orleanians and visitors alike.
New Orleans District D City Councilman Eugene Green welcomed Shakor Studios to its new location with a message of support and a Proclamation. Green said: “It is great to celebrate with Shakor, and his wife Troylynn, the opening of this great and very attractive studio and gallery. That Shakor has chosen to invest and open their door in growing District D is a tremendous asset to this community.”
Councilman Green, who has over the years promoted small businesses as the former Executive Assistant for Economic Development to Mayor Marc Morial. Also, as the Director of the City’s Office of Small and Emerging Business Development, and a business owner himself said: “I have had the opportunity to watch for decades as Shakor shares his talents far and wide, opening and operating a successful studio and gallery and placing his artwork throughout the nation. But he has also supported other entrepreneurs. He celebrates his own Shakor Studio opening today while giving other business owners an opportunity to display their products sums up his motivation, one that includes achieving success in business but also sharing his resources in support of the aspirations of others. I wish Shakor, and Troylynn, continued success. I know that the new Shakor Studios will be a great asset to this community for decades to come.”
