Color and light are on display in Mitchell Memorial Library throughout the remainder of October.

“Reba Goss: Kosciusko Artist” is an exhibit currently on display in the Libraries’ John Grisham Room, featuring 14 paintings by Kosciusko, Mississippi, native Reba Goss.

The desire to paint was awakened in Goss while attending a workshop in Pineville, Louisiana. Artist Dianne Trevino, the workshop’s instructor, advised Goss that “painting is placing lights and darks on canvas, placing color where you see color – and then you have a picture.”

Goss later studied under Memphis artist Artek Smith, and her works have been entered in juried art shows in Memphis and Germantown, Tennessee. Goss has won awards in art exhibits in several mid-South fairs and Attala County Fairs in Kosciusko, where she currently resides and has her art studio in her home.

A reception honoring Goss and her work will be held in the John Grisham Room on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., and the public is invited to attend.
