The paintings of Vicksburg Art Association artist and longtime member, Jean Blue will be featured in a retrospective show which opens at the Firehouse on Thursday, May 5 from 8 PM until 10 PM. This show is the culmination of a year dedicated to honoring Ms. Blue.

In addition to the planned honors, Jean won Best in Show in both the VAA Fall and Spring competitions this year truly marking the 2004 - 2005 Art Association year as hers.

Over 75 pieces are being borrowed from local collectors for the exhibit. These will be augmented with a few brand new pieces which Jean has created especially for the show. These will be for sale.

To view several works being considered for the show see Jean's photo album.

Gallery hours for the six day run of the show will be posted soon.

Thank you Vicksburg! and Vicksburg Art.com for letting me view the works of Jean Blue way up here in Milwaukee. What a treasure, and source of rightful pride for your city, to have assembled this collection from far and wide. How difficult it is for an artist to show what she has done when it is spread among many owners. Thank you for letting me print some of the examples. Carolyn King Stephens, Milwaukee WI, June 2005

Description

            

The VAA offers art-related programs and/or speakers. Throughout the year workshops in varied art disciplines are held. Competitive exhibtions of work by regional artists are hosted. Most of these events are held at the Old Constitution Firehouse Gallery located at the corner of Main and Openwood Streets
          

            

About the Firehouse

                        The VAA is fortunate to have as its headquarters one of Vicksburg's first firehouses. This building has been designated as a Mississippi Landmark by the Department of Archives and History. The Old Constitution Firehouse is believed by the Archives and History Department to be the most intact Victorian fire station in the state.

It was built in 1870 as the second house for the city's first volunteer fire company and later housed the first paid company.

  The building retains the central stall, barracks room, cupola, and bell which was used to call the volunteers.

  The presence of the fire station made the Openwood - Main Street area one of the most desirable residential districts in Vicksburg before 1876.
