"And now a word from our sponsor"....
A little reminder......
Reflections in Oil Exhibition
by Mississippi Oil Painters Association
Opening Reception, Friday, June 10
Opening Reception: Please join us Friday, June 10, 5 - 7 PM, to meet the artists and view nearly 30 pieces of beautiful artwork. The exhibit will be on display June 10-24.
This summer, the exhibition will tour across the state in a traveling show called “Reflections in Oils”. This large traveling show will highlight one work of art from many of the state's top artists. Sponsored by the Mississippi Oil Painters Association (MOPA), the show will feature works for sale by a group of 28 artists – painter members and honorary members of MOPA who use primarily one medium:Oil.
Each artist brings his own style or “reflection” to the piece he submits to the traveling show. The show opened in May at the Southside Gallery in Oxford, but this is the first time the entire body of works will be shown together. The show will then move to Jackson’s Fischer in September.
Most of the art offered in the show reflects the beauty of Mississippi. Selections vary in size, genre, and locale. Works of landscape, still-life, and figure range from representational styles to modern painting styles.
I have been busy co-chairing this event for artists from all over the state of Mississippi. Hope you will come out tomorrow night!
