BACKPORCH BLUES

Gallery Opening

From solemn moments standing silent and still among an endless acreage of cotton blooms and turn rows, to the vibrant movements of a familiar blues tune ringing in distant ears, you are sure to be encapsulated by the works of Bub Branton, Ellen Bidwell Dudley, Grace Buchanan, Cliff Speaks and Park Neff, all artists of the Mississippi Delta, inspired by the culture of the land and people. We are proud to announce these fine artists as our feature artists of the Blues Week gallery opening on September 12. Come on out to Backporch Blues and kick off the festivities with these fine artists. Nick Secoy will be picking’ and strummin’ some tunes on the back porch. There will also be a poster signing with Cristen Barnard, the winner of the Highway 61 Blues Poster. And last, but certainly not least, we want to give a big shout out to the Mighty Mississippi Music Festival for sponsoring this amazing show! There will be tickets on sale at the opening event for the music festival.
