Saturday, I’m off to the Peter Anderson Arts and Crafts Festival in Ocean Springs. I’m hoping to see some of the artists I met at Mississippi Art Colony back in late September and to meet even more artists. There will be “more than 400 artists, crafters and food vendors lining the downtown streets of Ocean Springs” according to the festival Facebook page.
Eleven of the 42 members of Mississippi Art Colony live in Ocean Springs. They are Kris Byrd, Rosemary Eagan, Monique Greathouse, Sandra Halat, Judy MacInnis, George Ann McCullough, Patt Odom, Susie Ranager, Norma Seward, Kathy Tosch, and Bryant Whelan. Some other Mississippi Art Colony members who work on the Gulf Coast are Pat Abernathy, Lyn Brown, Sherry Phillips Carlson, Paulette Dove, Kat Fitzpatrick, Vanda McCormick, and Cissy Quinn.
