Scenes of Oxford featured in exhibit at Cartmell Gallery
Special to The Star
May 20, 2001
An exhibit featuring works by Mississippi native Peyton Long will be featured at Cartmell Gallery and Frame.
An opening reception will be held Tuesday from 5 p.m.-7 p.m., with remarks from the artist at 6. The exhibit will be housed at the gallery until June 8.
As an emerging artist, Long studied at the Marscutz School of Art in Pix en Provence, France, and Rhode Island School of Design. A graduate of the University of Mississippi, she is currently "making my living as an artist" in Oxford the emphasis of her current exhibit.
The exhibit's paintings represent Long's favorite places.
Using a representational, impressionistic style, Long's paintings have a bold sense of color that reflect the diverse backgrounds of people who make up Oxford.
This use of color is not limited to the Oxford exhibit.
The artist recently received two Purchase Awards at the 2001 Gumtree Art Festival in Tupelo. Her works have been featured in the Mississippi/Alabama State Art Competition, 2001; the Mississippi Collegiate Art Competition, 2000; and the People's Choice Art Competition, 2000.
Cartmell Gallery and Frame is located at 609 22nd Ave. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m; after hours and Saturday by appointment.
