Art Talk

By Andi Bedsworth

The galleries in Oxford are bursting with new exhibits just waiting to be seen, and you are sure to be busy soaking up all of the art on display this month. Southside Gallery, the University Museum and Art 2 Frame all have new shows on their walls.

At Southside you will see the new and familiar as they are remounting some of Estelle Faulkner’s work previously shown at the University Museum this past summer. Laurin McCracken’s watercolors are also on display at the gallery, and this show will be up until Nov. 24th. The reception is this Thursday, Nov. 8th from 6:30-8:30.

The University Museum has two new exhibits in their galleries worth seeing. Rolland Golden’s River and Reverie: Paintings of the Mississippi will be up until December 8th, and Time on Parchman Farm, 1930s will be in the museum until Dec. 19th. This show documents life inside the prison during the 1930s through photos taken by Martha Alice Stewart.

On the west side of town is Art 2 Frame, a new frame shop and gallery in town. Owned by Tim Reese and Ann Marie Bender, this gallery is quickly making its presence known on the local art scene. Their newest show Cuba for Keeps features work by Milly Moorhead West and Cindy Grant.  This show will be up in the gallery until Nov. 23rd.

So as you can see, the galleries are busy, and I encourage you to enjoy the wonderful cultural offerings on display. Please send me your arts related news to arttogollc@gmail.com.
