The Starkville Area Arts Council is excited to announce our next Art in Public Places (AiPP) Exhibit, our 2021 Annual Winter Showcase, on display beginning November 2, 2021.
This exhibit will be on display in-person and online on the SAAC website (starkvillearts.net/creativeeconomy) from November 2, 2021 - January 10, 2022, in the lobby of the Greater Starkville Development Partnership in downtown Starkville.
This exhibit will feature 23 works, including ceramics, Photography, Prismacolor, acrylic, and more pieces from all over the world, from right here in Starkville and all over Mississippi to Atlanta, GA; St. Louis, MO; and Borneo.
The Exhibit will kick-off with a reception held on Tuesday, November 9, from 5:30-7 pm in the Greater Starkville Development Partnership lobby in downtown Starkville. AiPP Committee members will cater this event. Wine provided by SAAC and Scotty's Wine and Spirits.
As part of SAAC’s AiPP series, works may be listed for sale. SAAC provides reception and publicity, handles the collecting and reporting of MS State Sales Taxes on behalf of the artist for any works sold while taking a substantially reduced commission (20% instead of 50% usually charged by galleries). The artist keeps 80% of the proceeds. Please contact SAAC for more information on purchasing works (firstname.lastname@example.org).
