The Starkville Area Arts Council is excited to announce the next exhibit in the Art in Public Places (AiPP) series, "In the Garden", a solo exhibition featuring works by one of our current Artist Fellows, Bonnie Renfroe.
The hybrid exhibit will be on display from October 3 to November 7, 2022, in the Partnership Lobby in Downtown Starkville and online on the SAAC website (www.starkvillearts.net/creativeeconomy).
The exhibit will kick off with an opening reception on Tuesday, October 4, from 5:30-7 pm in the Greater Starkville Development Partnership lobby in downtown Starkville.
Bonnie Renfroe is a multi-media artist concentrating on hand-built ceramics, drawing, and painting. Her ceramics are mainly raku, with form and color inspired by animals, nature, and the human body. She relies heavily on drawing and texture for her paintings, creating scenes that mimic a dream-like feeling. She is also a community-wide art teacher and drummer. This exhibit will include 40 pieces.
Renfroe has been a Teaching Artist and Fellow with SAAC for over three years, serving youth in the community at sites including the Starkville Public Library and the J.L.King Center. At these two sites, Renfroe teaches anywhere from 100-150 students over the year at her weekly classes.
This Fellowship position, along with Sabrina Campbell, was made possible by a grant from the Windgate Foundation, as well as individual donations, sponsors, and grant funders. Supplies for these programs were provided in part by the 4 County Foundation and 100 Women Who Care.
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).
