Verna McClain Art Exhibit

Wednesday, December 19, 2018
Gulfport Public Library

Local artist, Verna McClain will be exhibiting a series of her digitally manipulated photographs of Gulfport scenes at the Gulfport Library, with an opening reception in the meeting room on Thursday, November 1st from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Come, nibble, sip and visit with Verna while enjoying a photographic tour of our town.

A painter, as well as a photographer, Verna strives to turn her photos into colorful, painterly renderings, and Gulfport provides rich subject matter. Digital technologies have allowed Verna to merge both of her artistic passions in intriguing ways. Originally from Washington, DC, she has lived in Gulfport for six years and exhibits regularly. She hails from a family of photographers and has been snapping photos ever since she was big enough to hold her photojournalist dad’s Speedgraphic on her lap.
