Bostic keeping busy, selected for numerous exhibits

August 31st, 2012 Comments Off on Bostic keeping busy, selected for numerous exhibits

DUPREE | Alex Bostic

Associate Professor Alex Bostic’s painting, DUPREE, is part of the exhibition, Artists by Artists.

The exhibition draws on the historical precedent of artists portraying fellow artists in works ranging from loose sketches to formal portraits.  These works were normally kept in the personal collections of the artists and seldomly seen by the public.

The goal of Artists by Artists is to share such works by outstanding artists from around the state of Mississippi. This exhibition includes more than 75 portraits and provides a rare glimpse into the unique relationships between artists.

The cost of the exhibit is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 students and is scheduled to open this fall at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson.

The price also includes admission to To Paint and Pray.

Visit the Artists by Artists website for more about the exhibit.
