Southern Miss Gulf Coast Library Fine Artists Display

News item published on: 2013-08-07 16:25:50

Artists of Gulfport Galleria of Fine Art are currently exhibiting art works at the Southern Miss Gulf Coast Library. Original photographs and paintings by seventeen local artists are on display on all three floors throughout the Gulf Coast Library. All works, including some fine quality prints, are available for purchase. The art will be on display through August 28, 2013.

Mary Anne Barkley, a local watercolorist, and her close friend Kathy McCall, established the Gulfport Galleria of Fine Art during the summer of 2007 because after Hurricane Katrina, local artists had very few locations to display their work. The organization, a cooperative, rather than a gallery, is located in downtown Gulfport. Thirty nine members offer ceramics, woodturnings, and jewelry. Books by local authors are also available.
