Painting of a house in a meadow
“House” by Joely Corban

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will host “Concurrence,” an art show featuring the work of mother-and-daughter artists Sylvia and Joely Corban.  The exhibit opened on February 14 and will run until March 21 in the Fine Arts Gallery at the Jefferson Davis Campus in Gulfport.  A closing reception will be held on Thursday, March 21, from noon until 1 p.m. in the gallery.

In the series, “Concurrence,” the Corbans express their undefinable bond through painting. Sylvia has successfully sold her paintings for 40 years on the art-festival circuit. Her work can be found on market sites such as Amazon and Wayfair. Joely has been an online art instructor for MGCCC for more than 10 years. She exhibits regionally in juried exhibits and sells her paintings online via Etsy. All artwork in the show has been drawn, painted and assembled by both artists.

“The bond between a mother and daughter is so exceptional, completely undefinable,” Joely said.  “This show represents that bond and how it is expressed in our artwork as each piece parallels, intersects and converges with the other artist’s work.”

The exhibit and closing reception are open to the public at no cost.  Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.   It is located in the Jefferson Davis Campus Fine Arts Building (D), 2226 Switzer Road, Gulfport.  For more information, contact gallery director Matt Steadman at 228.897.3736 or
