The Vicksburg Art Association is honored to bring home to Vicksburg hundreds
of Pajerski’s works in watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastels, drawings, and
prints. The collection spans over 40 years of the career of this prolific
artist. It is the first time since her death that collectors and the public
have had an opportunity to purchase her work.
Pajerski, originally from Meridian, MS, was a resident of Vicksburg for most
of her life. Her work is found in permanent collections and in the homes of
many avid collectors. Pajerski participated in many Mississippi art
groups—such as the Meridian Museum of Art, Allison’s Wells, the Museum of
Art for Women, Utica Arts Colony, Henry Jacobs Camp, the Walter Anderson
Museum of Art, and the Mississippi Arts Colony.
Additional hours for viewing and purchasing art will be:
Thursday, September 15, 4pm to 8 pm
Friday, September 16, 10 am to 4 pm
Saturday, September 17, 10 am to 4 pm
Sunday, September 18, 1 pm to 5 pm
The Vicksburg Art Association meets monthly and offers a Spring Membership
Exhibition, a Fall Statewide Exhibition, periodic workshops, and a Youth
Exhibition. Meetings are held in the recently renovated Constitution
Firehouse in downtown Vicksburg.
There is no charge to attend the meeting and sale and the public is
