LRMA Shop Open House - great holiday shopping!

Kicking things off from 10 a.m. until noon, co-authors Charline McCord and Judy Tucker, along with illustrator Wyatt Waters, will sign their new book Christmas Memories from Mississippi. Neil White, editor of Mississippians, will be on hand to sign copies of this new book. Sarah Grafton of Wolfe Studio will showcase a selection of exquisite hand-painted birds.

Among the special gifts will be Whitt glass bowls, vases, and bottles, Old 61 Frames, and an array of double-weave Choctaw baskets. The Museum Gift Shop carries a wide selection of books including the LRMA Guild’s cookbook A Taste of the Guild, as well as notecards and other stationery items. There will be many unique items for children including nostalgic toys, books, and other stocking stuffers. For a gift that will commemorate a visit to the Museum, there are LRMA t-shirts, canvas totes, handbooks, and mugs.

The event is open to the public. Free gift wrapping will be offered to Museum members.

The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Seventh
Street in downtown Laurel. For more information call 601.649.6374.
