The Brookhaven Regional Arts Guild announces their August Art Show in the Lincoln County Regional Library in Brookhaven. It features the work of Derek Covington Smith, formerly of Brookhaven, who has returned home to continue his art career. In the 16 years he has been gone, he has pursued many interested and work with galleries in NYC and other places. He has returned to his roots to have a slower life pace and to create art, teach and promote the ARTS in SW Mississippi. A perspective of his work will hang in the Library from August 2-30 at regular library hours. A reception will be held in the Vernon Room of the library to meet and greet the artist on August 16 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. There will be a short gallery talk at approximately 5:30 p.m. Come by and meet this interesting man and perhaps he will inspire the artist in you to come out and play. This event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
