Mississippi Arts Commission Display April-June

While my solo exhibition was on display at the Lucile Parker Gallery at William Carey University in January-February, Malcolm White, executive director of the Mississippi Arts Commission, saw it and had his assistant, Candice Thomley, call and invite me to show my work in the Gallery of the MAC office in Jackson. The MAC is the official agency for the arts in Mississippi and is housed on the 11th floor of the historic 16-story Woolfolk State Office Building, 501 N. West Street, a half block from the capitol. What an honor!
The display space in their office consists of five free-standing double-sided black wooden panels. On four of the panels I hung larger works, while on the remaining six I placed from two to four pieces. The works will be on display from April 6-June 25, with a closing reception on June 25 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. All state employees are invited to attend.
