A Very Special Magic Hour at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art (Thur. Sept. 29, 2022)

On Thursday, September 29th, the 119th birthday of the world-renowned and celebrated artist-philosopher, Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965), the Walter Anderson Museum of Art in historic Ocean Springs, Mississippi welcomed the public to another outstanding “Magic Hour”, a name based on the comments made by Anderson.

“It is approaching the magic hour before sunset, when all things are related…” – Walter Inglis Anderson

This latest event featured the music of award winning music artist, Symone French, the art exhibit “Andrew Bucci: Landscapes in Pattern and Color,” which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of famed Mississippi artist Andrew Bucci (1922-2014), and “The Home Front”, a pop-up art exhibit benefiting Ukraine by Oksana Fogg, an artist and past participant of WAMA’s biannual Horn Island Camp Out. Oksana Fogg’s exhibit was held at the museum’s Courtney Blossom Art Cottage. She paints more nowadays to help fund and support her loved ones back home in Ukraine during this humanitarian crisis. Oksana’s time spent on Horn Island off the coast of Mississippi helped her cope with realities of everyday life and its struggles. She says that painting on the island provided her both empowerment and peace in more ways than one.

The following photos by Stephen “Andy” Anderson were taken at this latest “Magic Hour” (commentary and editing by Johnny Cole; additional editing by Brenda Germany).
