Art crawl season returns today (Jan. 27) with the first Oxford Arts Crawl of 2015. The free event kicks off at 6 p.m. with plenty of exhibits spanning a wide range of visual arts.
The University of Mississippi Museum will feature Lee Renniger’s “A Light Passage,” which uses ceramics to portray elements of the garden. This will also be the last opportunity to view “Bloomingdale’s Fashion Touchdown: NFL Haute Couture Helmets,” featuring unique football helmets created by world-famous designers.
Also on campus, Gallery 130 in Meek Hall will feature Cliff Tresner’s “Notes from the Road.” Tresner earned his MFA from Ole Miss in 1994, and his exhibit features sculpture, painting and drawings that he says balances functional crafts, such as furniture design, with fine art practices.
Here’s what you can find at the other stops:
The Powerhouse Community Arts Center will feature a fiber arts show of quilts from Piecemakers Quilters Guild of Lafayette County. City Grocery will feature works from Tammy Oliver Cook, and Frame Up Gallery will feature Jeri Carter and Lisa Paris. Southside Gallery will feature various artists from around the region.
Art Crawl participants can park at one spot and the double-decker bus will shuttle art them to all the exhibits.
Art crawls are set for the fourth Tuesday of each month, so upcoming crawls will be held Feb. 24, March 24 and April 28.
The University Museum, Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, Gallery 130, Southside Gallery and Community Trust Bank are sponsoring the events.
