Peggy Fontenot has been exhibiting her Fine Art Photography nationally since 1991.

She has received numerous awards, which include:
the Heard Museum (AZ)
the Eiteljorg Museum (IN)
Red Earth (OK)
Cahokia Mounds (IL)

In October 2008, Fontenot was presented with the 4th Annual Black & White Spider Awards Nominee in the category of Photojournalism.
In 2006 she was awarded an L.A. Treasures grant.
Among other projects, Fontenot is currently photographing and interviewing veterans from across the United States for an upcoming multi-media traveling exhibit, The Living Wall, which will honor all living veterans while bringing awareness to who our veterans are and in what conditions they exist today.
Collateral Damage contains a selection of the images and stories, which will be included on the Wall.
