The works of Mississippi State University Art Professor Jeffrey Haupt will lead the 2015-16 season of the Miller Art Gallery at Meridian Community College with the initial show opening Tuesday.

A reception is planned in the gallery, which is located in Ivy Hall, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

 For this exhibit, Haupt said his work tends to focus on the formal picture making ideas while embracing primordial familiarities. “These works are metaphorical. They are analogies,” he said.
Haupt, who holds a bachelor of fine arts from the Cleveland Institute of Art, studied in Spain and Holland before beginning graduate work at New York Academy.  He earned his master of fine art at Indiana University and was awarded the Lanham fellowship study in Italy.

Since joining the Mississippi State faculty roll, Haupt’s work has been exhibited from Alaska to Florida, California to New York and many points between.

The Miller Gallery show will be on display through Sept. 24. The gallery is open from Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is free of charge. For details, contact John Marshall, art instructor and curator, at 601-484-8647.
