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.
