The Vicksburg Art Association will kick off its 41st Annual Artist Exhibition on Oct. 1 at the Old Constitution Firehouse Gallery, 1204 Main St.
The opening reception will begin at 6 p.m. for Patron, Silver, Gold, and Platinum benefactors and will continue from 7 to 9 p.m. for the general membership and public.
The exhibition, which was open to members of the VAA, includes all original artwork in a variety of media categories.
Competitive awards — first, second, third place and honorable mention — were given to each category.
The gallery will be open for additional viewing from noon to 4 p.m. on Oct. 2 and 5, from noon to 6 p.m. on Oct. 3 and from noon to 7 p.m. on Oct. 4.
The VAA will also hold its first-ever critique and discussion session beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 3.
Randy Jolly, who serves as the VAA co-president, will facilitate discussion and critique of the artist members’ current work.
“All artist and non-artist members are invited to enjoy this activity,” Jolly said. “But to participate in the making of comments you must bring work to be shared with the group,” he said.
