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.

ISIS Band

December 26 & 28

ISIS was originally formed by the band's lead singer, Kevin Williams 1990. ISIS started as an original rock band. Touring the East Coast playing their own songs, the band was asked to learn a few covers because people like to hear songs they are familiar with. ISIS watched as its fan base continued to grow as well as their song list of originals and covers. Each member of ISIS lends a wide range of musical influences and styles to the ultimate sound, and the band can instantly switch gears from pounding rock to psychedelic funk and everything in between. It helps when each member is good enough to sing lead vocals in any other band, according to Kevin.

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 http://www.rebeccaalstonstudio.com/
