New exhibit on display at Starkville Light and Water

August 3, 2010

Five local artists brighten up the lobby of the new Light and Water Department. The works are varied in media, technique, and subject matter. Right behind the receptionist desk a vibrant painting of musical instruments done in mixed media catches the eye. The name of this painting is “All that Jazz” and Elizabeth Huffmaster is the artist. One needs only to move a few steps over to discover two beautiful and tranquil country side scenes. The first is entitled “Sheep – Springs A Coming” by Faye Fisher. The second painting features a tranquil lake with rocks, unusual grasses, and boats in the background. This painting makes one want to escape to it’s location as we suffer through the heat of the summer. Betty Jane Chatham is the artist of this oil entitled “A Quiet Day at Bluff Lake”. Arch Pitts, who often chooses to paint old buildings, has selected to hang a water color entitled “Barn”. It will remind many Starkville residents of their ties to the farm. Artist Diane Ellis has a hanging that will bring ones attention to its content. It is entitled “The Last Journey.”
As we are exiting the lobby we are almost overwhelmed by another very colorful painting, this one by Faye Fisher of the Orne River in France. This painting will make paying your light and water bill much less painful.
Art in Public Places was responsible for hanging these works. This committee functions as part of the Starkville Area Arts Council and has hangings in other business in town plus the lobby of the Greater Starkville Development Partnership. If additional businesses are interested in having original works in their lobby they may call the Arts Council office at 324-3080.
