Inscription.  Clyde Connell, an internationally-known artist named for Scotland's River Clyde, was born and raised in a large household in Belcher on the Dixon Plantation. These early life experiences are reflected in her art. A self-taught painter and sculptor, she was influenced by the art galleries in New York City then created her art at her home on the banks of Lake Bistineau in Bossier Parish from the late 1950s until just before her death. Connell is known for her large sculptures created from the organic materials found near her lake home and also from discarded pieces of farming machines. Her work was exhibited in Paris, New York City, and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC. Connell's art is also found in many private collections and public institutions including the New Orleans museum of Art and the Fort Worth Modern Museum.
