Artist Bio : Gale Navarre

Gale Navarre

Gale Aucoin-Navarre is a wife, mother, grandmother, and retired teacher of Lafourche Parish School Board. Her interest in ceramics began in her early childhood by making “mud-pies” in the backyard of her Napoleonville home.


Since retiring from teaching she now has the opportunity to foster her love of clay by attending classes at Nicholls State University ceramics department and working in her home studio. She also participates in various art events in the community which allows her the gift of sharing her passion of pottery with others.

She has participated and shown her works locally and in the surrounding areas at the Amigas Brunch, Downtown Live, the ULS Academic Summit, and at several juried Nicholls Student Exhibits.
