More than 80 pieces of artwork will line the walls of the Old Constitution Firehouse Gallery during the Vicksburg Art Association’s 34th annual Mississippi Artists Exhibition.
“Art pieces include watercolor, drawings, 3-D, photography and mixed media,” art show chairman Randy Jolly said.
A stained glass window made by Mark Bleakley won best in show, and it looks phenomenal, Jolly said.
The Mississippi Artists Exhibition, which includes work from professional and nonprofessional artists, will run through Wednesday at the gallery, which is located at the corner of Openwood and Main streets.
Viewing hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday.
The VAA will also host a Brown Bag Lunch on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with Randy Miley as the featured speaker.
“Miley is the department chairman of the art department at Mississippi College,” said Jolly.
“He has been an educator for more than 35 years and from 1978 to 1984 taught art in Vicksburg at Warren Central High School,” Jolly said.
“Miley will be speaking on the topic, Starting Points: How Artists Get Inspired and Where To Find New Ideas.”
The event is free and the public is invited, said Jolly.
Participants are asked to bring their own lunch and the VAA will supply the drinks.
