Joe MacGown Art happenings in January

Second Saturday Pop Up Shows  at the Pop Porium

It has been a busy month with lots of stuff happening, as always! We had our inaugural Second Saturday Pop Up Art Show at the Pop Porium Popcorn shop on Main Street, in Starkville, MS on January 13, 2018! Despite frigid temps, we had a steady crowd of art loving folks swing by and view and/or purchase art. In addition to my own art, my son Joseph had art there, as well as several other vendors! We have several more Second Saturdays planned through at least May with the next occurring on February 10 from 12 to 6 pm. Come by and see what we will have!

Pop Porium Art Sales

Our Second Saturdays look to be a hit! But, wait, there's more! Rosa Dalomba, Pop Porium owner will be working with several of us local artists to sell art in her store on a regular day to day basis! Art will range from the trippiness of us MacGowns to beautiful ceramic works by some amazing local potters!  Look for this soon! 

MacGown Postcards for sale at the Book Mart

Wow! Local businesses are embracing us and our art! Carolyn Abadie, owner of the Book Mart and Cafe on Main Street in Starkville, invited Joseph and I to put up a rack of some of our colorful postcards! All cards were printed at our amazing local Chalet Arts in Starkville! Go buy some of these wonderfully printed cards and your proceeds will go toward us and Carolyn! 

Joe MacGown art in Commodore Bobs

Yet another business, Commodore Bobs, has provided me with an opportunity to sell art! Commodore Bobs is a crazy good little restaurant tucked away in Starkville's Cotton District. Basically, all the art on the walls is now mine and for sale. The art is aquatic themed, as is the restaurant. Go check them out and while you are there, give a glance at my art. If you like it, let me or the folks there know, and I will gladly it to ya! Here are few images of some of the art I have at Commodore Bobs!
