This week is a great week to see new shows hanging in galleries in north Mississippi. There are several exhibits of interest that have opened recently that are worth paying a visit to.
The University of Mississippi Museum opened The Wellspring, Works by Hamlett Dobbins on November 12. This show will be up until February 22, and has an opening reception this Thursday, Nov. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. The Memphis-based artist will present a lecture on Wednesday, December 18, from noon to 1 p.m. The small show is based on a series of paintings inspired by his relationship with his two children.
Southside Gallery on the Oxford Square just had an opening reception last week for their show, Until the Day Breathes…New Work by Carlyle Wolfe and New Work by Drew Galloway. Both artists are inspired by nature in this current show. Carlyle focuses on foliage and Drew paints his works on sheet metal. This show will be up during the month of November.
A little further north in Como, the Main Street Gallery will host the Como Arts Council Youth Show. The Gallery is located at 223 Main Street in Downtown Como, and will hold a Meet the Artists reception Saturday, Nov. 16 from 3 to 5 p.m. Over 40 students have signed up to show their work. The gallery will be open evenings 6 to 8 p.m. from Nov. 18-23. They invite the public to attend this exhibit that celebrates the efforts of these young artists.
