Mississippi Art Colony Exhibit

Since 1948, the Mississippi Art Colony has brought together artists and instructors to create, study, and critique each other’s work. The Mississippi Art Colony is the oldest of its kind in the nation, drawing on artists in varied media from Mississippi and neighboring states.

Based in Utica, Mississippi, at Camp Henry Jacobs, the Colony’s mission is to provide an environment for the personal and professional growth and development of visual artists. The mission is reached by providing workshops and sessions offered in all aspects of the visual arts.

The Mississippi Art Colony passes on the beauty it creates by taking winners of its juried competition to communities across the state.

The 2008 Traveling Exhibit is comprised of those chosen selections from artists across the state and the region.
