Gore Galleries Hosts Seven Women Artists July 1

June 18, 2009

Mississippi College's Gore Galleries is hosting an exhibition featuring the paintings and images of seven women artists who traveled to Italy last summer.

The exhibition on the Clinton campus will run from July 1 until August 15. One of the featured artists is Patt Odom, who retired as chairman of the art department at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

Gore Galleries Director Randy Jolly and graduate art assistant Sofia Lepe are working behind the scenes to get the MC art gallery ready for the showing. The seven women from the Magnolia State are members of the Mississippi Art Colony founded in 1948 in Way, Mississippi. Based at the Henry Jacobs Camp in Utica, MS, the group offers workshops on the site.

Odom serves on the Mississippi Art Colony's board and Judy Berry is its president.

The Gore Galleries is named for Dr. Sam Gore, an internationally celebrated artist and former chairman of the MC art department at his alma mater.

For more information on the exhibition, contact Randy Jolly at 601-925-7770 or rjolly@mc.edu.
