On Friday, February 29 the Attic Gallery will open their annual theme show featuring the work of more than forty artists from across the South including New Orleans, Birmingham, and all over Mississippi. The theme this year is "Weather."


Watercolor by Paul Fayard


"Every year we pick a word or idea from somewhere, and let all our artist friends know. Somehow, since it's February, the weather seemed to be on our minds, so we decided to make it our theme. Giving the artists a theme seems to jump start the creative process for them here at the beginning of the year," explained Lesley Silver, owner of the Attic Gallery located in downtown Vicksburg for over 35 years.

Clay Sculpture by Con Christeson


"We've been doing these for over 20 years. Themes from past years include: cats, doors, coffee cups, hands, masks, signs, and the kitchen."
"Many of the participating artists turn out to see what everyone else has done. Some interpret the theme in a straightforward way, but there are always some whose work causes people to hesitate and scratch their heads over how the piece relates to the theme. That's part of the fun of it."

There will be paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery, and more.

"Our coffeehouse will be open downstairs that night, so it should be a fun evening to be on the corner of Grove and Washington Streets."


The opening reception will be Friday, February 29 from 7 PM to 9 PM at the Attic Gallery at 1101 Washington Street in downtown Vicksburg. The public is invited. For more information call 601 638 9221 or see our web site: atticgallery.net. The show will continue through March.
