| Walter Inglis Anderson: Artist, Naturalist, Mystic | This reinstallation of the permanent collection interprets the genius of Walter Inglis Anderson in the expansive context of the American imagination. This thematic exhibition follows the story of Walter Anderson through the pivotal moments and localities of his life, presented in conversation with larger themes of the 20th century. A reintroduction to the artist-philosopher who revolutionized art in the South, Artist, Naturalist, Mystic casts the artist’s large body of work - and many of his rarest and most exceptional creations - through new displays, juxtapositions, and contemporary discussions. The framework, like Walter Anderson’s ever-changing and regenerating world, sets the stage for further expansions, interactives, and evolutions of the permanent collection in the years to come. Sponsored by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi, the Mississippi Arts Commission, and Balch and Bingham LLP.
| Bloodlines | Matt Stebly | Matt Stebly has put his mark on the art world through a particular medium: tattooing. Stebly, the great-grandson of Walter Inglis Anderson, regularly creates masterpieces on skin at his studio, Twisted Anchor Tattoo & Fine Art Gallery in Downtown Ocean Springs. From the point of his needle great blue herons take flight, flowers blossom, and alligators sun themselves on the skin of art collectors. Unlike more traditional modes of art, Stebly’s clients become the canvas – walking, talking, breathing works of art.
Bloodlines features the striking art of Matt Stebly and explores his artistic style that is both ancient and contemporary. The exhibition takes its name from the act of tattooing, the history of bodily modification, and the artistic lineage of Stebly. Cost: $10 adults; $8 seniors, military, students, and AAA. Free for members. Sponsored by Fisher Philips, and the Mississippi Arts Commission.
