Upcoming Gallery Exhibition

A Song From the Field

January 15th – March 4th


The Regional Arts Commission (RAC) presents A Song from the Field which features local artists William Burton Jr., and Robert A. Ketchens. Pieces in the exhibition were inspired by four trips the artists made over a period of about 18 months. The artists spent time in the sacred sites of blues history and made connections between those places, their personal histories, and their contemporary existence and identity as black artists. Popularly known as the Mississippi Delta, the area of interest starts in Memphis and seeps southward like the mighty Mississippi. Though not really a delta, but the alluvial floodplain of the Mississippi and the Yazoo River, the territory is as legendary as the Blues Trail.

ARTISTS: William Burton Jr., Robert A. Ketchens
