HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - The Poston's of Hattiesburg are the team behind "Articles and Hang Ups Two," a gallery that features different types of artwork, jewelry and specialty hand bags in addition to framing services for folks who want their pieces to stand out.

Carl or "Blitz" Poston as everyone calls him and his wife Pam are unveiling their gallery Friday, just in time for this weekends downtown art walk.

In March the gallery is hosting a highly anticipated show featuring the work of actress Jane Seymour, who is one of many artists they carry.

"Who a lot of people don't realize is quite a talented artist also and we have quite bit of her artwork but she'll be here for a two day show in March," said Blitz Poston.

The Poston's previously had a gallery called "Articles and Hang Ups" in the Perdido Key area, but due in part to Hurricane Ivan they decided to close it and move to the Hub City to be closer to family members. The couple hopes the gallery helps to spotlight downtown.

"We are getting quality shops downtown but we really need to spread the word. We are growing too far out of Hattiesburg and we all need to get together and pull in and support our downtown and that's why it's important to me," said Pam Poston.

The gallery opens it's doors at 10 AM on Friday, with a preview show that evening.
