New art exhibit at the Moss Point Fine Art Gallery

There is a new art exhibit located inside the Pascagoula River Audubon Center.

This month, the Moss Point Fine Art Gallery is featuring the exhibit ‘The Pascagoula River: A Treasure Trove of History.’  The exhibit is filled with art and artifacts that tell a fascinating story.

Artifacts on display include bottles and decoys found along the river as well as saws and steel hooks used during the lumber boom.

The Moss Point Fine Art Gallery normally features artwork from a local artist. Center Manager Susan Stachowski said, “This month, I didn’t have anybody sign up and I was gifted this donation. This print, this piece of art by Guy Strickland and it’s a beautiful piece. It tells some of the history of the Pascagoula River and I was like ‘why not put together a historical exhibit to help people understand the Pascagoula River’ and what it has to offer.”

The exhibit is open Wednesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday, February 20th from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Admission to the exhibit and the center has been waived, but donations are welcome.
