This Sunday I’ll be a part of the DeSoto Arts Council Winter Show and Fine Arts Sale reception- live music, wine, food, unique holiday gifts and of course ART.
The reception is the best time to get a chance to meet and talk to the artists themselves.
I’ll be doing an airbrush demonstration during the opening reception and will have two paintings in the show.
DeSoto Arts has on its roster over 200 artists from the North Mississippi and the Memphis areas.
Other DeSoto Arts points of interest…
The Gallery: DeSoto Arts permanent gallery houses local art, a gift shop and is maintained 3 days a week by a loyal volunteer staff.
The Shed: Music is a big part of DeSoto Arts. This outdoor venue hosted a free summer music concert series sponsored by Siemens.
Best of 2010: DeSoto County Photographers Club Amateur photographers exhibit their best work and the winners of their annual photo contest.
Spring Art & Autism Show: DAC first hosted this exhibit in Spring of 2010. The Dockery Family Foundation supports workshops for autistic children and young teens. DeSoto Arts gives them gallery space to have a real art show/reception. This is a great opportunity for the public to see what these kids can do, and how it affects their lives.
