Showing Off What the Gulf Coast Arts Community Has to Offer

The Fine Art Gallery at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Jefferson Davis is hosting the works of Gulf Coast Art Association (GCAA) members throughout the month of November.

About the Gulf Coast Art Association (GCAA)

Founded in 1926, the GCAA is one of the oldest art organizations along the Gulf Coast. The GCAA has nearly 50 members, from Bay St. Louis to Gautier and north as far as Perkinston. Members range from professional artists and gallery owners to art devotees and weekend painters.

The object of the GCAA is to encourage the appreciation of visual arts in the communities of South Mississippi, to hold exhibitions of art works, and to form a sharing art experience between artists of various media, as well as artists and the public.

The current exhibit features more than 45 works in a variety of media and subject matter from new and longtime members Al Kellogg, Happy McDonald, Joyce Leonard, Fred Hutchings, Odie Spence, Mary Beth Barnett and Sherry Carlson.

The exhibit runs through November 30, with a closing reception on November 30 at noon. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
