Exchange Show Opens Friday At Bozarts Gallery
The Exchange Show will open at Bozarts Gallery this Friday night and features six new regional artists who have never exhibited in Water Valley.
The concept of the Exchange show is simple: Bozarts Alliance members are exhibiting their work at the Powerhouse in Oxford, and Powerhouse artists are exhibiting at Bozarts Gal-lery for the month of June, according to Annette Trefzer, Bozarts owner.
Artists at Bozarts Gallery are Bailey Blu, Lauren West Cleary, Pam Locke, Sheri Marshall, Benny Melton, and Judy Joy Nocifora. Work includes Locke’s watercolors, Cleary’s collages, Blu’s whimsical mixed media work, oil paintings by Melton and Nocifora, and new glass items by Marshall.
During the opening event, beginning at 6 p.m., we will also cut the large community drawing in pieces that can be purchased for a nominal amount, Trefzer said.
“Come out on Friday evening, meet the artists, and get a slice of the community drawn mural.”
