I took part in an Art Market sponsored by Parks & Recreation Department of the City of Hattiesburg yesterday. It was a day of fun spent with other artists and craftspeople and plant lovers. There was also a plant swap and I brought home three interesting pots.
The venue was the Hattiesburg Community Arts Center, a donated building which formerly housed the local Hattiesburg American newspaper. The building is being upgraded, updated, and remodeled to provide space for drama, art classes, and a variety of other events. It is definitely a work in progress.
