The Vicksburg Art Association will kick off its 41st Annual Artists’ Show on October 1 at the Old Constitution Firehouse Gallery, 1204 Main St.

The Opening Reception will begin at 6:00 p.m. for Patron, Silver, Gold and Platinum benefactors and will continue from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for general members and the public.

The exhibit, which was open to VAA members, includes all original artwork in a variety of media categories.

Competitive prizes – first, second, third place and honorable mention – were awarded for each category.

The gallery will be open for additional viewing from noon to 4 p.m. on October 2 and 5, noon to 6 p.m. on October 3, and noon to 7 p.m. on October 4.

The VAA will also hold its first-ever critique and discussion session starting at 6:30 p.m. on October 3.

Randy Jolly, Co-Chair of the VAA, will facilitate discussion and critique of current work by member artists.

“All artist and non-artist members are welcome to take advantage of this activity,” Jolly said. “But to participate in commentary writing, you have to bring work to share with the group,” he said.

For more information or to join the VAA, call 601-415-0934.

“Whether it’s staying informed about local government issues or hearing the stories of local residents, a local newspaper is vital to a community. I have felt privileged to be part of a dedicated team at the Post throughout my tenure and hope that with theirs and with local support, I can continue to grow and hone my skills while helping to share the stories in Vicksburg. When people ask me what I love most about my job, my answer is always “the people”.
