The 2016 Mississippi Invitational features work by 18 contemporary visual artists living and working across the state. The exhibition is on view at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson from Dec. 17, 2016 – Feb. 18, 2017.

Critz Campbell is assistant professor of sculpture at Mississippi State University and has shown work at galleries and museums across the country.

“I am striving to add my voice to a rich Southern vocabulary through measured craft and familiar form. Like the great writers of the South, I employ metaphor, Southern vernacular and gothic imagery to reflect stark Southern places that are simultaneously haunting and sublime. Each piece is a study of the Southern landscape, home, family and fragments of its beautiful complexity.”

MSU Assistant Professor Gregory Martin also had works selected for the exhibit.

Ben Jenkins, MSU graphic design alumnus, will be present a lecture, “Designer as Entrepreneur,” on Fri., Oct. 28 at 10 a.m. in Fowlkes Auditorium in the Union.  

Jenkins’s creative approach to living and working will be woven into his talk, where he will discuss how to turn a passion into a career.

“Not only does he run a successful graphic design firm in Dallas called One Fast Buffalo,” said Department Head Angi Bourgeois, “he has also translated his life-long love of baseball into a successful brand of customized baseball bats, Warstic Bat Co. He’s a dynamic and energetic speaker, and he’s very interested in answering questions as long as students would like.”
