Over the years, the gallery space in the Mississippi Library Commission has hosted art exhibits featuring some of Mississippi’s finest artists. These shows provided an opportunity for members of the community to connect with one another through the power of the arts.
The Mississippi Library Commission (MLC) and the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC) are partnering to showcase artists adjudicated through MAC’s annual Visual Artist Fellowship Grant program. The Fellowship grant program honors Mississippi artists who demonstrate the ability to create outstanding work in their chosen field, including painting, sculpture, photography, and many other mediums. These grants are highly competitive – only a small number of applicants receive an award.
The new exhibit features the work of seven of the 2019 Visual Arts Fellows. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm (except state holidays) through January 11, 2019. A public reception will be held on Thursday, December 13th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. For more information, contact Susan Liles at firstname.lastname@example.org
