'Take Time To Appreciate' Exhibit

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Ending today (today!) is the exhibit at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art -- really, a great small museum -- in Laurel, Mississippi of 'Take Time to Appreciate: Photographs of Mrs. L.V. Hull and Rev. H.D. Dennis by Bruce West'.

Well of all the art environments in Mississippi, Bruce picked two great ones.  Av and I have visited Miss L.V.'s and Rev. Dennis' places several times - following are some pics we've taken.  This set is of Miss L.V.'s home in Kosy, taken about a year after her passing:

Here at home, we have a shoe that she painted several years ago:
There's nothing Miss L.V. wouldn't paint.

The other part of Bruce's exhibit is of Margaret's Grocery just outside Vicksburg that Rev. Dennis built for his beautiful wife Margaret.  These are pics we've taken there from several visits:
