Although we do not have gallery space, Oh-Là-Là! is located in charming Old Mandeville, on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, 45 minutes from New Orleans. Nancy welcomes visitors and will be happy to show you some Louisiana hospitality, zip you around Mandeville for a tour, invite you into her home to view her personal collection and to meet her dogs Sarge and Erzulie (Vodou goddess of love) and of course to show you any items from the website collection that interest you.
Many thanks also go to Nancy Josephson, a friend to Nancy and a great friend to Haiti. Nancy is an artist and musician as well as a student of Vodou, and published, in 2007, Spirits in Sequins, Vodou Flags of Haiti, a comprehensive study and a dazzling photographic extravaganza, which she calls “a culmination of a decade of work and play in Haiti.” Nancy has generously allowed us to cite from her book throughout the website, and you can purchase it at www.amazon.com. She has had exhibits of her artwork in museums worldwide. Most recently she showed three rooms of artwork dedicated to the Vodou spirit, La Siren, at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.

In a continuing effort to give back to a Haiti which needs everything but the indomitable spirit which keeps it alive and humming, a portion of our sales will go to support two organizations. Involved with these groups are personal friends who are devoted to Haiti, to its people, to its art, to its culture, and who are driven by a determination to help improve lives there.
