Starkville Area Arts Council is excited to announce the return of AiPP's annual Winter Showcase. This hybrid exhibit is on display for in-person viewing in the lobby of the Partnership in downtown Starkville starting Tuesday, December 1, 2020, during business hours (8 am - 5 pm weekdays), subject to mask requirements and social distancing guidelines. The online gallery will be viewable on the SAAC website until further notice. There will be no opening reception.
This exhibit features nearly 30 works by more than a dozen artists in and outside of Mississippi (including California one from the Netherlands). Works cover varying themes and media, including acrylic, oil, watercolor, ceramics, mixed medium, photography, and more!
As part of SAAC's AiPP series, works may be listed for sale. SAAC collects and pays sales taxes on behalf of the artist for any work sold, and the artist keeps 80% of the proceeds. This exhibit will be on display until February 1, 2021, in the lobby of the greater Starkville Development Partnership in downtown Starkville and available online until further notice.

Starkville Area Arts Council is excited to announce the development of its 25th Anniversary Art & Culture Cookbook. Formed in 1996, SAAC will celebrate its 25th Anniversary this next fall and is creating an Arts & Culture cookbook to memorialize Starkville and Oktibbeha County's unique arts history, culture, cuisine, and community... the Cotton District Arts Festival, Forks & Corks, and so much more.
The theme is simple: what represents Starkville's arts and culture?
SAAC invites the community to share stories, history, and recipes. Whether a favorite memory from CDAF or Art in the Park or any other favorite cultural experience, it's welcome! What reflects Starkville's cultural heritage for you? Whether a resident, student, or former local, let us know! Is it an artist residency at the Noxubee Refuge? Listening to music over the best BBQ in Starkville? Tales about your favorite local Starkvillan artists or musician? What's your favorite architectural structure? Share on SAAC's website, www.starkvillearts.net/25thanniversary. The submission deadline is January 15, 2021.
Funds from the sale of this book will support art and art education outreach in Oktibbeha County, including grants to other arts organizations and projects here in Starkville. Help memorialize and celebrate our artistic heritage! Volunteers are needed, and the community at large is invited to participate through submissions. Contact SAAC for further details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
