This Thursday, April 18, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Southside Gallery on the Oxford Square is hosting a free art reception in its upstairs gallery.

The exhibit will feature the MFA thesis exhibition of local artist Wesley H. Ortiz (wesleyhortiz.com) titled Muted Resistance, which includes 12 works created with gesso, acrylic, charcoal and graphite.

Accompanying the artwork will be a veritable feast provided by the artist’s mother, Alice Ortiz. Alice has been in foodservice for more than 40 years, operating Our Place Restaurant in Amory, Mississippi, for a decade. She will be cooking up several goodies, including ham-and-Swiss individual quiches, pork tenderloin, Mississippi Caviar, cream puffs with caramel sauce and more.

Arrive early to get first crack at the art–and food!
