Welcome to the land where blues began

Previous Exhibit - Art on the Tracks: New Works by the GAGA Girls

09/20/2006 - 12/31/2006

GAGA Girls Ginny Piech Street and Anita Prentice held an art exhibit featuring blues related art by both artists to celebrate the blues at the city of Clarksdale's Greyhound Bus Station, in partnership with the Delta Blues Museum on September 29, 2006. Lite fare and live music from Big T was provided and the event was open to the public.

Ginny Piech Street's brightly colored paper collages are filled with humor and quirky imagery. Anita Prentice uses smashed stained glass and painted grout to create her impressionistic, frescoed mosaics. Both artists will also feature sculpture in their own unique style.

The GAGA Girls, whose name derives from the first letters of their names, have a close connection with the area. Ginny has family ties to Memphis and Anita has family roots around Tupelo with one aunt who actually owned a juke joint in Tutwiler. The contemporary exhibit of sculpture, mosaics and collage will be displayed against the backdrop of the Clarksdale's historic Greyhound Bus Station.

The name of the show was inspired not only by the fact that the artists are traveling to Clarksdale from Florida's Treasure Coast specifically to show their work, but "Art on the Tracks" also embraces in part the historic background of the blues. Art will be for sale at the opening reception and throughout the show, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the museum.
