Local artist exhibits paintings and sculptures at William Carey gallery

The Lucile Parker Gallery at William Carey University is hosting "Fractured Space," an exhibit of paintings, drawings and sculptures by Mississippi artist Patt Odom, from September 23 until October 16.

The opening reception for the exhibit is 4:30 until 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 25.

Odom specializes in oil and acrylic paintings with south Mississippi themes.

Odom continues to teach workshops across the country. She has had numerous shows of her work throughout the South and many influential local collections feature her work, including collections at WCU.

Ed Ford, Art Gallery director and professor at William Carey University, describes Odom's line of work.

"It's such a variety, I mean, there's something for everyone, I mean, there's paintings that are very sweet, there's detailed portraits of character faces. They're always just wonderful to look into their eyes and have them looking back at you," Ford said.

Odom's approach to art attempts to reveal the character, humanity and spirit of the figures she paints. Her personal style illuminates her artistic process by making viewers aware of the paint, the color and the brushwork she uses.

This show includes 30 paintings and drawings along with six ceramic sculptures, representative of the emotional range and technical mastery of Odom's recent works.

The Parker Gallery, located at 512 Tuscan Avenue in Hattiesburg, is open from 1 until 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, or by appointment by calling (801) 755-4052.
