Furry friends to visit Carey's Gillespie Museum December 15

WCU WCU
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from William Carey University

Furry friends from the Hub City Humane Society will be the guests of honor at the William Carey University Sarah Ellen Gillespie Museum of Art from 1 until 4 p.m. on December 15.

Kittens and puppies will be on hand to provide stress relief for students in the midst of exams or others who just need a little love from the shelter animals. The event will be held to promote the museum’s current exhibit, “All Creatures Great and Small,” a collection of paintings from Mississippi artists featuring animals.

Hot chocolate and cookies will be provided. Dr. Mark Malone, professor of music, will provide musical entertainment. Guests are encouraged to bring small bags of kitten or puppy food or treats for the animals. The kittens and puppies will also be available for adoption through the humane society.

Selected artists featured in the exhibit include Alan R. Flattmann, Walter Inglis Anderson, James McConnell Anderson, Christopher Stebly and Gary McGregor. The works were selected from the university’s Gillespie Collection, which contains over 600 pieces of art and is considered to be the most comprehensive collection of art executed by Mississippians in the 20th century.

The museum is located adjacent to the Smith/Rouse Library on the Hattiesburg campus. The exhibit runs through January 18 but will close for the Christmas break from December 18 through January 10. Regular operating hours are 1 until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Special appointments may be made by calling (601) 318-6561.
