Attic Gallery set to host art show to ‘Remember’

Memories are reminders of one’s past that reside in our minds. Some might be welcomed while others not.
The Attic Gallery has challenged artists with this notion of looking back, and on Friday, Feb. 28 from 7 to 9 p.m., an art show will be held with the theme “I Remember.”
“We figured now that we’ve been at it for nearly 49 years. We do have a few memories to share, if we can conjure them up,” Attic Gallery owner Lesley Silver said.
Silver holds two-to-three art shows each year, showcasing 40-to-50 pieces at each show.
In addition to those who come out for the show, Silver said, many of the participating artists attend.
“They love to see each other’s work,” she said.
It is exciting for Silver, too, with her likening it to a surprise every time a piece comes into the gallery.
Vicksburg artist Keith Matthews has submitted several pieces for the show, one of which is a watercolor of The Glass Kitchen.
The iconic restaurant was located on the corner of South and Walnut streets where the BancorpSouth parking lot is now.
“He has also done a watercolor of Goldies (the original Goldies Trail Bar-B-Que restaurant that was located on Washington Street) and the Joy Theatre,” Silver said.
The artwork will be hung in Silver and her husband, Daniel Boone’s, apartment, at 1101 Washington St, above The Attic Gallery. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Participating artist include Pat Abernathy, Rick Anderson, Lane Berg, Jean Blue, Tony Davenport, Lynthia Edwards; Elayne Goodman, Kennith Humphrey, Lucy Hunnicutt, Randy Jolly, Ellen Langford, Ron Lindsey, Keith Matthews, George Ann McCullough, Patt Odom, Becky Pate, Susie Ranager, Jamie Tate and Carol Zoerb.
