SCAC News and Reminders

Hope everyone is ready for the Labor Day weekend and the start of college football.

The Stone County Arts Council (SCAC) will hold the next meeting at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) Visual Arts Building on September 10th at 5:30 p.m.  Hope to see everyone there as we continue this wonderful year.

There will be an Art Exhibit opening on September 16th at 6:00 p.m. at MGCCC Visual Arts Building with featured artist Kym Garraway.   The public is invited to the gallery opening and the gallery will be open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment until October.   For more information or to schedule an appointment call Sandra Cassibry at 601.928.6298.

There will be a “Watercolor Workshop” by Kym Garraway held on September 14th at MGCCC Visual Arts Building from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  There are a couple of seats left, please call Sandra Cassibry at 601.928.6298 to check for availability and reserve a spot.  All proceeds from this workshop will go to help fund the “Yellow Brick Community Art Project”.

On a sad note, the SCAC has learned that Mrs. Nancilee Bodine of Bodine Pottery has passed away this week.  She was the past president of this association and loved the “Arts”. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband, Pat Bodine, and her family at the great loss of this lady.  The arrangements are not known at this time, but we will forward as soon as available.

Thank  you for your support of the arts and the Stone County Arts Council.
