Louis Shanks 1st Thursdays!


Join us on Thursday, November 3rd for these special events!

Nov. 3rd from 5pm to 8pm

Every month, we will feature a local artist and interior designer. Rooms will be designed around pieces of the artist’s collection with other pieces displayed in a gallery setting. Enjoy the sounds from local musicians while discovering each room’s unifying features. Food and beverages will be served. All work will be on display and for sale for the remainder of the month.


We will feature the art of Keely Carnahan.
Keely Carnahan is a San Antonio painter and teacher, having received her Bachelor of Fine Art-BFA from University of Texas with a concentration in painting and Texas teaching certification in Art EC-12. She currently teaches art full time at a distinguished San Antonio charter school. Noble Art began in 2007 and the Noble Art Ministry in 2015. Our ability to paint at charity events to serve the community through donations has been the most rewarding part of the ministry. The mission has always been to present our gifts to the Lord (Romans 12) and We believe that God is blessing this ministry.
