The African Diva Project: Paintings by Margaret Rose Vendryes

Margaret Rose Vendryes in an artist, lecturer, historian, author and curator with a bachelor's degree in Fine Art and master's and doctorate degrees in Art History. She began The African Diva Project in 2005 and has expanded the project into an outstanding exhibition that questions the role of race and gender identification in contemporary African and African American communities. Each canvas features a full-figure portrait of a popular black female soloist. Each wears an African mask, chosen for its character and/or aesthetic compatibility to her image, either an actual mask or a mask painted on paper, and applied to the canvas in the place of her face. Songs ... messages that once rose out of vinyl channels, like black magic, are inscribed in the space that surrounds them. The exhibition will be accompanied by the music of each artist.

Pass Christian Theatre Project - The Lion in Winter

December 11-13 & 18-20
Christmas 1183, an aging and conniving King Henry II plans a reunion where he hopes to name his successor. Laced with wry and mordant humor, The Lion in Winter tells the story of a truly dysfunctional family, but one that was the most powerful in Europe. Henry the Second and his queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, held sway over England and more than half of France. It was not a marriage made in heaven. Eleanor had been imprisoned for ten years for her part in a rebellion and was meeting the king, their three sons, the young king of France and Henry's young ward and mistress for a brief Christmas reprieve from prison. During the stay, every kind of trickery and device is used by the parents and the sons as they jockey for the succession. Alliances are made and unmade and intrigues abound. There is a delicious war of wits among all the characters using purposely anachronistic dialogue to heighten what is a thrilling, essentially true story.

This brilliant comedy captivated Broadway with Robert Preston and Rosemary Harris, who won a Tony for Best Actress, and went on to triumph as a film with Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn winning her third of four academy awards for her performance.

Come enjoy this spectacular cast directed by Will Koolsbergen: Jerry Varvel as King Henry II; Carole Vann as Eleanor of Aquitaine; Jamie Temple as Richard the Lionhearted; Justin Kind as Geoffrey; Aaron Rishel as John; Harry Clarke as King Philip and Helani Scurfield as Alais.

Art Exhibits @ Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport

Two new art exhibits are now on display at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. The art exhibits feature the work of Suzy Templin and Betty Magee.

Suzy was born and raised in Minnesota where she earned two bachelor degrees in Fine Art from the Minnesota State University graduating in 1996. She relocated to South Mississippi's Keesler Air Force Base in 1989 where she was hired as a Military Fine Artist. She has been doing coastal artwork for 25 years where her true love for the Gulf Coast is portrayed. She has won the Biloxi Seafood Festival Poster Contest five times. Suzy recently won Chefs to the Coast event's poster contest and the Blue Moon Art Project that was held during The Peter Anderson festival in downtown Ocean Springs.

Betty Magee began seriously painting over 40 years ago. Betty was born in McComb, MS where her father was a very prolific graphic artist, and her roots were really in New Orleans, LA where she began her art career. She won awards in her first four shows she entered which was an endorsement for her to go forward. Betty is accomplished in all mediums oils, pastels, ceramics, watercolor, acrylics and more. Art is her identity. Betty loves to paint nature. The native flora and fauna of the coast, especially the bogs with pitcher plants are represented in her exhibit in the airport. Betty also is one of the founders of the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center of Arts & Education.

Both exhibits occupy the display cases located near the airline gates on the second floor of the terminal building.

Rebecca Alston Art Exhibit @ WAMA

November 14 - January 31

The Walter Anderson Museum of Art is pleased to present the works of Ocean Springs native Rebecca Alston. The current exhibit combines three distinct bodies of Alston's work: Earth's Voice, Bioforms, and Convergence. Alston's interest in extra-artistic, most notably scientific, issues fuels her restless, inquisitiv sensibility, making her ever more eager to understand the universe from all vantages, from the compilation of mathematical data to the aesthetic appreciation of natural form. Alston finds new beauty in nature by following in the footsteps of scientific inquiry; for her the telescope and the microscope, the data graph and the spectral scale are no less artistic tools than are the pencil and the paintbrush. Learn more at
