p’Artake 44: Ocean Springs Art Association Fall 2015 Exhibit & Sale

Also at the Peter Anderson Festival in early November, I saw one of the ancillary exhibitions, p’Artake 44: Ocean Springs Art Association Fall 2015 Exhibit & Sale, at the Ocean Springs Community Center. Surrounded by Walter Anderson’s murals were an impressive number of artworks in the 44th annual exhibition, which ran from October 30 through November 14, 2015.

Walter Anderson’s murals cover the walls of the exhibition space.

Carole Marie, who is president of the Ocean Springs Art Association (OSAA), showed me one of her artworks in the show.

Carole Marie exhibits at The Art House, the cooperative gallery for members of OSAA. She works in a variety of mediums and genres, but the subject matter of classic cars is prominent in most of her current work, according to her promotional flyer and a Knight Foundation blog post, “New exhibitions at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art feature cars and parades,” written by By Barbara Johnson Ross, Ohr-Ohr’O’Keefe Museum of Art, in October 2014.

Here are two other artists I met at the OSAA exhibition: Ellen Ellis Lee and Debra Baldinger.
