You’re invited to a special art reception and exhibit by Dr. Kim Sessums.
This exhibition is the first to publicly collect and share Sessums’ creative output over the past 4 decades and includes works created in pencil, pastel, oil, egg tempera, acrylic, oil pastel, bronze, and found objects.
Constant artistic observation allowed this artist to experience varied worlds of the rural south in ways others might not have. The natural way he translated their qualities through graphite particles on paper, paint or clay seemed to command his works to speak, occasionally sing, or even slap the viewer in the face, making them take a closer look and setting them off on their own journey into self retrospection.
Join us for a reception on Tuesday, February 7th from 6:00pm until 8:00pm in Enochs Hall Art Gallery at Mississippi School of the Arts. The work of Sessums will remain on display until March 24th, 2017.
