Lydia Thompson will have an exhibit of her work on display with the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino Gallery in Biloxi from Dec. 11 though Jun 1, 2013.

The head of the Department of Art, Thompson’s exhibit is titled “Roots, Connections & Pathways” and is part of the Expanding Traditions gallery.

The work was inspired by the paradox of the cotton boll’s attractiveness as a natural form and its repugnance as a symbol of a history of exploitation.

“Roots, Connections & Pathways” includes a series of diverse works in various media.

A reception will be held on Dec. 8 from 4-6 p.m.  For more information, visit
