The show also celebrates the Attic's standing as Mississippi's most enduring gallery.


(Cathy Hegman's Alice's Eleven is number eleven)


The event will be hosted on the third floor of the Attic Gallery building at 1101 Washington Street in downtown Vicksburg. For the past two years Lesley and Daniel (owners of the Attic) labored to convert the third floor space into a residence. This show will be the first time they have opened their new home to the public since they moved in at the beginning of this past summer.

"During our design process, it was always a priority to make the space friendly not only for us to live in, but to host art openings like this one," Lesley said. "For us it wouldn't be a good home unless it was a place to share art."
