Since Hurricane Katrina hit her home in Bay St. Louis, MS, twenty-seven months ago, Gulf Coast artist Vicki Niolet has been creating art that reflects her experience. The theme of her latest exhibit, "Boxing Katrina", draws from both of the meanings of "boxing" - embedding objects within a structure and fighting back. In her boxes, Niolet has captured the character of her community in dealing with the disaster in vignettes of despair and humor.
Opening Reception for Vicki Niolet: SATURDAY December 8th, 2007
3 PM to 8 PM
The exhibition will run from December 8, 2007 through January 8, 2008.
