I'm not going to bore you with gory details, but here are four of my favorite visual artists who live, (or have lived) work, or create in the Delta. (and by favorite i mean, "would be INCREDIBLY excited to have a piece in my home" Two are pretty well known, two are smaller-time, but all are fantastic. PS: I don't mention my mom here-Holland Wilson- because her art already graces our walls. but she's probably my most favorite.)
Here we go...
Maude Schuler Clay: Sumner, MS
Alison Furr-Lawyer: Jackson, MS (ok, not technically Delta)
William Dunlap, Tupelo, MS (also NOT the Delta, but he paints the Delta A LOT)
Bradley Gordon: Clarksdale and Oxford, MS
