STARKVILLE, Mississippi — An exhibition of sculptures by Mississippi artist Earl Dismuke is on view at MSU’s Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery through March 11.

“Piecing it Together” features a series of pieces taken from two of Dismuke’s most recent works. The collections present both abstract and objective narratives, with one collection focusing on the making of a story through found objects, and the other focusing on form and negative space.

A sculpting artist for over a decade, Dismuke co-founded the Yokna Sculpture Trail, a bi-annual rotating outdoor exhibit that features a variety of sculptures by artists from across the country. Her work has been exhibited in national and international venues, from Louisiana and Mississippi to Switzerland and Peru.

The current exhibit, located on the second floor of the Cullis Wade Depot, can be viewed during the building’s normal hours of operation, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The exhibition also includes a discussion of Dismuke’s work and a guided tour of the exhibition on Thursday, February 17 at 1 p.m., with a public reception the same day from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Starkville Area Arts Council and the Starkville Visitors and Convention Bureau are sponsors.

MSU is the main university in Mississippi, available online at www.msstate.edu.
