From Bugs to the Bizarre, Art Exhibition by Joe MacGown at Giles Gallery, Mississippi State University

My exhibition at Giles Gallery in the Architecture Dept. on the Mississippi State University campus is now up and will remain until October 17th.  There will be an opening reception on Monday, October 1st at 5 pm at the Gallery. Some refreshments will be provided by the folks hosting the show. I will be at the opening to talk about the works and will be glad to answer any and all questions.

I was featured on the front page of the Starkville Daily News today for this exhibition. Read the wonderful article by Matt Crane with photos by Leilani Salter online at: http://www.starkvilledailynews.com/node/11414


In other news, I am almost finished with a pretty cool colored ink and pen piece done on primed birch plywood that I started long ago! Soon. The end is in sight. Maybe. Also, I started a collaborative drawing with Elle Gottzi, a crazy cool, semi-blue haired, tattooed and well-pierced, Ukranian hippie art chic now living in Newfoundland (http://ellegottzi.deviantart.com/). Also about to start another one with Sander Jansen (http://www.sanderjansen.net/ ). Of course, each of them are working on a piece for me to finish up as well. So, looks like I have some stuff to do.

An Argyle wall! A canvas print such as this one of the Isle of Skye, painted by an American painter of the late 19th
century, William Trost Richards, may take you right back to the wilds of the home country and go well with your Scottish
wall. It can be ordered from WahooArt.com.
