Virtiosi: Trailer McQuilkin and Bill Myers

A virtuoso is an artist whose technical accomplishments are so pronounced as to dazzle the public. That definition fits when describing two of the Mississippi Gulf Coast's most dazzling artists. Bill Myers and Trailer McQuilkin. Known for their attention to detail, it is the level of skill and craft that ties Myers and McQuilkin together.

Trailer McQuilkin uses sheets of copper, copper wire, oil paints and natural materials to craft life like wildflowers. He creates each documentary sculpture with uncompromising attention to accurate details down to the tiniest fibers and even the occasional insect-bitten leaf.

Bill Myers works in mixed media. From sculptures to drawings, all are built of layers of material and meaning. He will amaze you with his thought provoking work and clever way of interpreting the world around him.

Goldy Locks Band

July 31

Goldy Locks can be harsh and direct, or soft and sweet, and her soul is reflected in the songs she writes and performs. Her original "Today I Won't Be Afraid" has been used to raise thousands of dollars for the YWCA, Sole4Souls and breast cancer prevention. It is also the basis for her schools program in which she gives motivational talks to teens and tweens, urging them to pursue their dreams without fear... and without falling prey to drugs, alcohol or reckless sex. She looks like a sexy, hard-rockin' chick, but Goldy has principles and she stands on them firmly. Follow Goldy as she navigates the constantly turbulent waters of fronting the touring band that bears her name and plays "boss" to a cast of rock musicians.

There will also be free oyster shell painting for children, light refreshments and all visitors are invited to register to win one of the new framed Biloxi Schooner prints.

The Museum was established in 1986 to preserve and interpret the maritime history and heritage of Biloxi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It accomplishes this mission through exhibits, educational events, and hands-on activities both outdoors and on the water. An array of galleries, exhibits and artifacts cover many topics; wooden boat building, catboats/schooners, shrimping, oystering, recreational fishing, the Joe Moran Art Gallery, environment/wetlands, charter boats, marine blacksmithing, the barrier islands, and a priceless collection of historic photographs.

One of the main features will be The NYDIA, a gaff rigged cabin sloop built in Biloxi in 1898, will be displayed in the Grand Hall with mast stepped and sails raised. Also featured is a timeline that covers from the first Indian settlements through current maritime history, which in all, tells the tale of over 300 years of history, culture, and heritage.

The Museum has brought life to local maritime history and heritage by replicating two 65′ double‐masted Biloxi Schooners - the GLENN L. SWETMAN and the MIKE SEKUL. Examples of living maritime history, the schooners sail the Mississippi Sound and waters of the north central Gulf of Mexico almost daily.

June Ward: Passages and Possibilities

Gulfport, Mississippi artist June Ward is inspired by beauty and color. After studying drawing and art history at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, she continued with other learning venues and private instruction, exploring forms of creative expression. In 2009, Ward was juried into membership of Oil Painters of America and is a member of Women Painters of the Southeast. She serves as a Regional Director for The National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. Passages and Possibilities follows Ward's passages through life as she searched for her artistic voice, open to all possibilities. Her art follows the cycle of the seasons in still life, landscape and figurative works. Flowers in her still life paintings show the natural progression of time with blooms at their peak, fading flowers and seeds signifying the repeating cycle. Her landscapes, which often include figurative elements, speak of the passage of time in different geographical locations. The overriding theme throughout all these categories is the emphasis of light, in an intimate setting accented with Ward's hand painted furniture.

Micheal Mabry: Revelations & Revelry

Micheal Mabry is originally from Clarksdale in the Mississippi Delta region, an agricultural center that is one of the richest cotton-growing areas in the United States. Clarksdale has been significant in the history of the blues, which has become a theme in many of Mabry's works. Growing up in the country provided Mabry with innumerable subjects to paint. Many of his works depict people of his community engaged in playing music, dancing, playing games, and basically enjoying life together in front of the backdrop of a blues joint or café. His use of bright colors, often using primary colors as the focal point in his juke joint scenes, conveys fun and community spirit. Mabry's wildlife imagery, on the other hand, conveys a sense of realism, showing the versatility of the artist. The focal point of the exhibition is Eye of the Last Days, a large book (33" x 23") that took Mabry over eight years to complete. The cover, which contains an eye that opens and closes, is made of several types of tree bark collected by the artist. Different pages of the 75-page book will be revealed each day.
