With that decision behind them, the committee started to tackle the idea of helping Jackson’s schools improve; when they learned of Alignment Jackson, they opted to throw their support behind that effort. In just the past few months, the United Way has funded efforts to creat Alignment Jackson—a non-profit group based on models in Nashville, Tenn., and Rockford, Ill.

hristmas came in September this year to BOOM Jackson. And we couldn’t be happier about it—because it’s one more way to celebrate living local in Jackson. To put together this first-ever holiday edition of BOOM, we had to get in the holiday spirit around here—even before we started scattering plastic spiders and sharing Halloween treats made with “graveyard dirt” and Pop Rocks. (That happened.) Even though I always wince at early holiday décor (I’m a 12 Days of Christmas kind of gal, ending on Twelfth Night), I am straight up-and-down a fan of holiday madness, from festive food to collecting the Kossen Christmas CD (page 60) to finding creative gifts and wrapping them artistically. Todd likes to say about me, “If there is anything Donna Ladd likes more than opening a gift, it’s watching others open gifts.” He knows me well, people. I love it even more if I just spent hours (or days) pondering just how to wrap each one so it’s completely unique and as arty as possible. I shop for one-of-a-kind gifts (and funky, mod, retro wrap and ribbon) throughout the year—in local shops, clearance sections, thrift stores, craft fairs—and I have marathon wrapping sessions just days (or hours) before the holiday gathering. I love this routine. It’s one of my most enjoyable creative outlets of the year. As for getting gifts, the more original and handmade and local, the better. If the giver made it, even better. My favorite gifts have included homemade bath salts my niece shipped me from Colorado (in hotpink bottles; she knows me well) and a graphic wooden bowl my friend, the Jackson-based artist Carolyn Bogart Deleo (carolynbogartdeleo.com), gave me for my 50th birthday. Oh, and that red knitted scarf James Anderson (of Scarvin’ Artist; check his Facebook page) brought me one holiday. I approach the holidays with an abundant, creative spirit—because I enjoy originality and sharing it with others. When they grace me with their artistry as well, I feel particularly blessed. And the more local the gift, whether bought or created, the happier it makes me to give or receive it. Managing Editor Kathleen Mitchell and I are kindred spirits on this, and we had a blast filling this holiday BOOM with myriad ways to both support local businesses and artisans and give the coolest and most unique gifts your loved ones will receive this year. We urge each of you to spend your dollars as locally as possible this year. Support local businesses that make Jackson unique, and put every dime you can in the pockets of the remarkable artists we’re blessed with in our city. I can’t think of a better way to benefit residents and the city as a whole than to invest every way we can in our creatives. And if you’re feeling an artistic itch, then scratch it. Then give what you create to someone you love. Fabulous holidays, all.

Planting the

Bottle Tree Seed // by Justin Hosemann

A

rtist Stephanie Dwyer is quick to acknowledge that not everyone gets bottle trees. She didn’t.

“I was asked to do a bottle tree in 2006 when I first moved here,” Dwyer says. “I didn’t really know what a bottle tree was, and when I first saw one, I honestly thought it was not that attractive and didn’t really understand it.” The 46-year-old relocated to Mississippi from Bellingham, Wash., seven years ago searching for a dramatic change in her life. What she found was an unexpected culture shock and a craft deeply rooted in southern folklore. “One of the cool things about Mississippi is that it’s like going back in time,” Dwyer says, “I really appreciate this place and its small sense of community. Mississippi has influenced 100 percent of my work.” 11


TRIP BURNS

JXN // seed from previous page You can find Stephanie Dwyer’s bottle trees all over Jackson, from upscale law firms to Felder Rushing’s Fondren jungle.

Dwyer approaches her pieces from an artistic point of view, creating sculptures with more movement than most bottle trees. legacy that stretches back thousands of years on the African continent. The stories diverge depending on the source, but each has a common thread of supernatural folklore. Many Africans believed these outdoor fixtures could capture and repel evil spirits (often referred to as “haints” in the South), essentially keeping them away from the home. Bottle trees crossed the Atlantic in the 18th century with the arrival of slaves in the Americas and took root in the Deep South as a cultural symbol. “Bottle trees kind of have a stigma attached to them,” Dwyer says—the “stigma” being that of a bygone era of the South, of poor rural tenants who placed Milk of Magnesia bottles on crape myrtle trees out of superstition. But Dwyer respects this tradition. It reflects some of her personality. “I’m not a real materialistic person,” Dwyer says. “And at a time when there weren’t many material possessions in the South, people made art from discarded items. It’s an ingrained way of doing things in this area.” That’s where Dwyer finds herself: bridging a centuries-old tradition into the

modern world. You’ll notice that her trees don’t always stand straight. They bend, lean and reach in different directions, sustaining themselves against the elements. (Trees that survived Hurricane Katrina largely inspired this look). Anachronistic to some, vibrant pieces of garden décor for others, the bottle tree has withstood the test of time, and Dwyer is proud to be a part of this living tradition. “This art form can stimulate people’s memories, triggering different times and different places,” Dwyer says. “I think there is something magical about the bottle trees, a connection to the past and present.” You can view Stephanie Dwyer’s work on her website (missmetaldesign.com) or see and buy her work at the Mississippi Craft Center (950 Rice Road, Ridgeland, 601856-7546). She is moving to Paris, Tenn., in January, so be sure to see her work before she leaves. Everyday Gardener also stocks her bottle trees (2905 Old Canton Road, 601-981-0273).

Her work is largely focused on her bottle-tree projects now, sinuous metal sculptures she creates from mild steel and donated bottles of varying shades. Dwyer is a welder by trade who spent time doing fabrication and pipe welding in Washington state before moving to Mississippi. Dwyer describes her journey with this peculiar art form over the last seven years as a “global education.” She routinely puts 30,000 miles on her truck every year, delivering her trees and visiting galleries or businesses showcasing her work. Her latest project is creating a piece for the entrance to the upcoming National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., an extension of the Smithsonian museum that will be completed in 2015. “What a lot of Americans don’t recognize is that this is part of our African American history,” Dwyer says. “It’s a very raw form of folk art.” Bottle trees, often referred to as “poor man’s stained glass” in the South, have a

Planet-Friendly

Holiday

// by Kelly Bryan Smith

H

olidays are a time of excess—too much alcohol, too much sugar, too much spending, too much trash, too much stress. By simplifying for the holidays, you can save money, help the planet and reconnect with the simple, intangible joys of the season. Rather than running yourself ragged this year, pause over a mug of hot cider or hot tea and consider what holiday traditions truly give you pleasure—as well as which ones you can kick to the curb. If gift-giving is your thing, put your love and creativity into your gifts rather than putting your credit score and your carbon footprint on the line.

Making the holidays about tradition and shared experiences, rather than just commercialism, provides for a more affordable and eco-friendly season.

Simple, Eco-Friendly Holiday Ideas for Grownups • Create homemade beauty products for your friends in bulk with simple ingredients such as coconut oil, aloe, Epsom salts and essential oils. • Whip up vegan chocolate truffles by processing dates, cocoa powder, walnuts, coconut oil and a pinch of sea salt. Roll balls in shredded coconut, sprinkles or cocoa powder. • Celebrate the season with a potluck with friends rather than a bunch of boxes tied up with bows. • Wrap gifts with reusable bags or even items such as pillowcases or dish towels. • Give your significant other the gift of a homecooked meal or a massage (at home or at his or her favorite local spa). • Support local businesses as you make your holiday shopping lists.

14

• Consider a charitable donation to the Mississippi Food Network, Community Animal Rescue and Adoption, the Good Samaritan Center or another favorite local cause instead of a material gift. • Spend an afternoon in a used bookstore, such as The Bookshelf (637 Highway 51, Suite AA, Ridgeland, 601.853.9225), or the N.U.T.S. book section choosing a book for everyone on your list. Write a special inscription inside each one. • Give consumable gifts that will get used rather than gather dust. Ideas include organic vanilla extract, a nice bottle of olive oil or a bar of goat’s milk soap. • Create gift certificates to give of yourself and your talents and skills. Give a few hours of child care or lawn mowing or tutoring or cleaning or graphic designing or writing—whatever floats your boat—to the ones you love.

November - December 2013 // The City’s Business and Lifestyle Magazine

Green Christmas Gifts for Kids • Make your own board game using cardboard from the recycling bin, found objects as game pieces and your imagination. • Give the gift of experience by sending the child in your life or a needy child to ballet lessons, summer camp or the zoo rather than spending money on the latest toy fad. • Invest in high-quality toys that are versatile and have a chance of being passed on to the next generation instead of ending up in the trash. • Take your favorite kid on a camping trip or to dinner and a local play. • Plant a special tree or plant for each special child in your life. • Create a dress-up trunk chock full of funny thrift-store finds. • Put craft supplies instead of toys in stockings to unleash you child’s creative side.

ne of the best parts of college football is the traditional and historic rivalries. Fans look forward to the games all season long. Teams canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to face their main rival on the gridiron, with bragging rights for the year on the line. A few things go into making a rivalry: The teams are in close proximity, play each year and have passionate fan bases. The best rivalries come at the end of each season. Also, a little (friendly) bad blood goes a long way, too. The Jackson State University-Alcorn State University rivalry meets the qualifications. Is the distance short between these two schools? Check. JSU and ASU are only an hour and a half away from each other, with just under 90 miles separating the two schools. Do they play at the end of each season? Of course they do.

Not All Who Wander

What kinds of things from growing up in Mississippi influence your art? I lived in Petal, but we were outside (the city). We were in the country, so I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of neighbors. I spent a lot of time alone, only occasionally with other neighbor children. And I read my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; books, and I spent a lot of time wandering, going to the rivers we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supposed to go to by ourselves, biking everywhere. So I had to develop an imagination. ... It was fun, (and) I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regret it a bit. It turned out to make me who I am.

What are some of the things you miss about Mississippi? Oh my goodness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful here (in Austin) like Mississippi. ... People move to Austin because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the prettiest place in Texas, but I miss being able to go somewhere and be alone. And I live in an apartment now, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a yard, yet. I mean, I do some guerilla stuff on my ownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a compost pile, and my balcony is overflowing with plantsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the same as being able to wander.

Your work definitely has an abstract feel. When you approach a subject for the first time, what are you looking to capture? A lot of artists are color people, and I think that I am a shape person. I have always seen things in these linear shapes and patterns. I like the elegance of shape. I like the blurring line between being able to see something in reality and then it dissolving into the abstraction of shape. 16





Mississippi native Jennifer Aldridge is mounting her first solo gallery show in New York City this winter.



What about subject matter? I guess I resonate with emotional things about the human condition. I guess thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the self-described job of a lot of artists. But I read a lot of news, and I just see things as a person, as a body would. (For example,) itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a war, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bodies and what they come back with. That is what my last series wasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just the sensitivity of being here and being physical.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next for you? I want to compete. I just want to keep pursuing the material. â&#x20AC;Ś I love my work, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a privilege to do it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just happy to keep going. Read more at jfp.ms/jenniferaldridge.

live music and an open bar gives partygoers first dibs at Mistletoe’s impressive roster of vendors, as well as a chance to participate in silent and live auctions. Tickets for the event are $100. The Marketplace features more than 155 vendors, some of whom have traveled from as far away as California to participate. The weekend’s schedule includes Olympic hurdler Joanna Hayes speaking about living a healthy life at a luncheoncum-fashion show, and a DJ spinning tracks at the “pinkest” event of Mistletoe: Rockin’ Down the Runway for Teens and Tweens.

operating out of Breazeale’s home. The market quickly outgrew the Breazeale residence and moved to Primos restaurant then to its current home, the Mississippi Trade Mart. Jackson native Janie Giffen purchased the show 10 years ago from Breazeale, and has kept Handworks bustling ever since. Handworks prides itself on being a familyfriendly market and is one of the few that allows strollers in its vendor aisles.

hen it comes to shopping locally for the holidays, Fresh Ink is an entertainer’s dream. Hosts and hostesses can design fully customized party invitations—stamped with a personalized return address stamp, of course—while also picking up cups, straws, cocktail stirrers, themed or monogrammed napkins, candles to set the mood, hand lotion for the bathroom, thank-you cards to send out after the party, gifts for guests, and custom wrapping paper to put the ultimate finishing touch on those gifts. To keep track of all the details, they can grab an agenda, planner or personalized notepad. At the same time, they can finalize their designs for holiday or yearly family cards to send out. Elizabeth Upchurch opened Fresh Ink in 2005 in Highland Village shopping center. “The little Hallmark store that had been in Highland Village went out of business, and I just thought, ‘This is crazy. We need a (paper store) here,’” Upchurch says. “I thought they had a decent following, even though I knew, based on the places I’d seen in Dallas and New York and L.A., what it could be. I really felt like there was a chance to take it to the next level.” Pregnant with her first child A custom at the time, Upgift deserves to church walked be wrapped into the Highland in paper to Village office match. and asked about available space.

Elizabeth Upchurch opened Fresh Ink eight years ago to fill a hole she saw in Jackson’s local business scene.

and wholesale stationery, Upchurch focused more on gift items at first. Over the years, though, the custom paper orders evolved into the core of the business. Now, eight years later, Fresh Ink has a new home on the second floor of Banner Hall (4465 Interstate 55 N., Suite 205, 601.982.0235). The shop’s huge windows let light pour over the retail space, with gift items in beautiful packages sitting on wood displays and tucked in window-sill shelves, and the expansive tables where Upchurch and her staff create custom invitations, stationery and more. The move, last February, came from a need to provide for a changing customer base. “It’s evolved into something that’s very custom and customer interactive, and we knew we were going to have to overhaul,” Upchurch says. “This place was available, and it was adjacent to the Bridal Path and Tuxes Too and Lemuria (Books). It just was a good change for us at that time.” Most born-andbred southerners never met a monogram they didn’t want to put on every-

thing, and Fresh Ink is their paradise. Even looking beyond paper, the vast majority of items are customizable, from glassware to coolers to storage bins. Rebecca Busby, Fresh Ink’s lead graphic designer, creates stationery with a southern flair as well, either from scratch or by adapting a national line. “We carry all these amazing lines from New York state and Los Angeles and D.C., but we in the South have our own way of doing things,” Upchurch says. Fresh Ink caters to a wide range of budgets, with affordable tchotchkes sharing shelf space with expensive indulgences. When first lady Michelle Obama and celebrity chef Rachael Ray visited a Clinton elementary school earlier this year, organizers contacted Fresh Ink to design custom stationery suites for the women. Upchurch says she strives to keep the store stocked with seasonal goods all the way through the surge of last-minute Christmas shopping. As for trends for the 2013 holiday season, it’s all about the gild. Gold, glitter and sequins are big, Upchurch says. Although Upchurch grew up in Corinth, Miss., her husband, Jeff Upchurch, is a Jackson native. Through the store, she felt more connected with her adopted city. “It really does get you invested in the community,” she says. “We get to know (our clients) from working with them. It’s so fun!” 21

Interior designers (from left) Joan Hawkins, Chris Morrow, Marilyn Trainor Storey and Thomas Roots all look for unexpected color palettes when decorating for the holidays.

Holiday Round Table:

The Experts on Holiday Decorating // by Marilyn Trainor Storey

I

recently sat down at a holiday table. It wasn’t one adorned with a beautiful centerpiece, or the finest and artfully assembled china, crystal, and linens. It was a round designer’s work table at interior designer Joan Hawkins’ Fondren studio and fabric library. There, I met with Hawkins and two other local designers, Chris Morrow and Thomas Roots. Discussing holiday decorating was our main course. As you might expect, with four designers around the table, creativity and ideas were not in short supply. And although each of us has a different style, we actually had much to agree upon as far as holiday decorating is concerned. Chris Morrow is an artist and floral guru with a keen eye for composition and a vast knowledge of floral material. He often collaborates with me on special projects, particularly Work. Live. Play.

Hawkins executes large-scale holiday projects for several clients where design boundaries blur. She brings the outside in with organic and botanical materials, and often winds up with some of her interior components outside. In her personal Christmas decor, Hawkins loves using sentimental, heirloom ornaments like vintage, handmade felt and sequin ones, photo ornaments her grandmother made, and even silver teething rings. She hangs handmade stockings made from remnants of designer fabrics. Perhaps Hawkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most unusual custom is using an evil-eye amulet she bought in Turkey as a tree topper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The eye is a symbol of protection, of being watched over, and it also symbolizes inclusion of our family members of different faiths,â&#x20AC;? Hawkins says. At our holiday table, Morrow, Hawkins, Roots and I agree. Take inspiration from anything you love. Use the personal. Use the unexpected. Use natural elements. Use a palette that flows with your usual decor or one that really adds a fresh color pop. Start and keep your own traditions. Throw in a touch of shine or shimmer. The results will be a visual and sensual feast that speaks to your heart this holiday season.

Young and Generous Cupples has seen a shift over the past decade in 20-somethings’ approach to philanthropy. “What we are finding is that people in their 20s now, that generation, is very focused on volunteerism. They are really ready to get involved, start getting their hands dirty, and make a positive change in the community,” she says. “We would really be missing out—and our community would really be missing out—if we didn’t grab a hold of those young women. It’s really a great organization to develop women into better volunteers and better board members. A lot of our women walk in the door with all those skills, and they are ready to be connected to something that is bigger and can make a bigger impact.”

dies, collecting donations for the needy, feeding the homeless—whatever it may be. Pursuing that project lets them start out and grow their participation from there.” The national Alpha Kappa Alpha organization sets targets every four years that both the undergraduate and graduate chapters will focus on. Currently, the group is working on issues including health, economic security, and arts and education. Isaac, a lawyer, also found a way to combine her profession with her passion for giving. One of the signature projects her chapter does each year is an estate-planning workshop, where AKA partner with lawyers to provide free estate planning and services including wills, powers of attorney and health-care directives. “We feel we’re doing a great service to the community to provide that to people who may not be able to afford an attorney,” Isaac says Other sororities that have active graduate chapters in town include Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta and Sigma Gamma Rho. On the men’s side, groups such as Alpha Phi Alpha and Omega Psi Phi are active in the metro. George Chuck Patterson goes beyond his fraternity to raise awareness about blood diseases each year in the Mississippi Greek Weekend, a fundraiser open to any Greek organization in the area. Regardless of age, working together is key, Isaac says. “I personally enjoy giving back through organized groups. I may not have 50 hours to generate to a project in a few weeks, but combined with other people, together we can get things done through the power of many,” she says.

Greek Philanthropy Part of the reason for that preparedness may begin in the college years. Many young people first get exposed to long-term philanthropy in college, especially if they are part of the Greek system. All nationally affiliated fraternities and sororities align with nonprofit organizations, hosting events to raise funds and awareness for local and national chapters of their cause. Although many former Greek members stay involved in their philanthropy after graduation, historically black sororities and fraternities tend to stay connected the most, because they offer more structured chapter for graduates. LaKeysha Isaac joined Alpha Kappa Alpha her freshman year at Millsaps College. Now, as president of the local AKA graduate chapter, she is able to connect with her sorority sisters

Jackson Menu Guide

National Register of Historic Places This historic 1910 building located in downtown Jackson, was once a neighborhood grocery called George Street Grocery. The famous Pulitzer Prize winning author, Eudora Welty, lived just around the corner until she was age 16. She frequented the store often and wrote a short story about it. The store was converted into a restaurant/bar in 1973. In 2008, under new ownership with some renovations, it was renamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ole Tavern On George Streetâ&#x20AC;?. We have captured the essence of the Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique culinary flair and good ole fashioned home cooking inspired by the local fares of Jackson and New Orleans. Cuisine ranges from Fried Green Tomatoes and Pimento Cheese Fritters to Seared Tuna Sandwich, Portabella Burger, and King George Burger to Gumbo, Red Beans & Rice, Fried Catfish and Country Fried Steak. Our night life includes: Tues.-Open Mic, Wed.-Karaoke, Thurs.-Ladies Night with D.J., Fri./Sat.- a variety of live music from locals and bands around the country.

Sweet potato casserole from Char

W

hen the holiday eat-a-thon rolls around, many home cooks find at least one dish they can’t quite perfect, whether it’s grandma’s cornbread or the perfect pumpkin pie. Or, maybe you’re the type who prefers to “cook” with a telephone and stack of to-go menus instead of a spatula and cookbook. Luckily, the great chefs in Jackson have mastered the art of perfect turkeys and luscious desserts. Why not let them do what they do best? Our staff set out to build the best holiday meal we could build with dishes from some of our favorite local restaurants. We start with appetizers. After all, you’ll need something to tide you over while cooking the rest of the food (er, while taking the rest of the food out of to-go boxes). Although not necessarily a “holiday” dish, the homemade guacamole at Babalu Tacos and Tapas (622 Duling Ave., 601.366.5757) is always a crowd-pleaser. When it comes to the main course, it’s got to be the turkey and dressing at Primos Café (515 Lake Harbour Drive, Ridgeland, 601.898.3600 and 2323 Lakeland Drive, Flowood, 601.936.3398). Of course, for a true southern meal, we could also turn to the award-winning fried chicken at Two Sisters (707 N. Congress St., 601.353.1180). For 50

Pecan pie from Char

sweet potato casserole from Char’s mouth-watering menu. Anyone who hangs around the Jackson Free Press and BOOM Jackson offices long enough can’t miss our affinity for the sweet stuff, so it’s no surprise our staff holiday meal would feature plenty of desserts. For traditional delicacies, we’re eyeing the cakes and pies at Primos Café and the cookies at Campbell’s Bakery (3013 N. State St., 601.362.4628). But the cinnamon-roll bread pudding from Capitol Grill (5050 Interstate 55 N., 601.899.8845) or the decadent blackberry cobbler at Collins Dream Kitchen (1439 Terry Road, 601-353-3845) just might make it to our table, too. No holiday meal is complete Let local restaurants cook your without a celebratory toast. Luckholiday meal this year. ily, the folks at Kats Wine and Spirits (921 E. Fortification St., 601.983.5287) have never steered us wrong in the wine department. Side dishes might act as supporting players, For the hopheads on staff, the beer selection at but they are truly the items that can make a meal McDade’s (mcdadesmarkets.com) gets better sing. We’d add cornbread from Grant’s Kitchen and better every month. With so many talented chefs turning out de(2847 Lakeland Drive, Flowood, 601.665.4764) and green beans from Table 100 (100 Ridge Way, licious dishes all across Jackson, we can’t wait to Flowood, 601.420.4202). Char (4500 Interstate 55 dig in this season. N. Suite 142, 601.956.9562) is also a great stop for Share what local delicacy makes it to your sides. We’d pile on the collard greens and fluffy holiday table at jfp.ms/holidaymeal.

the herbivores among us, we’d look to see what kind of vegan special Matt Mabry is whipping up at BRAVO! Italian Restaurant and Bar (4500 Interstate 55 N., Suite 244, 601.982.8111) or Troy Woodson is plating at High Noon Cafe in Rainbow Co-op (2807 Old Canton Road, 601.366.1602).

Know Your Turkey // by Kathleen M. Mitchell // photos by Trip Burns

T

he holidaysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially Thanksgivingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are the biggest culinary undertaking of the year for most of us non-chefs. From carefully constructing the menu and a cooking timeline, to whipping up snacks to nibble on while preparing the main courses, to pulling out that once-a-year pumpkin-pie recipe â&#x20AC;Ś and all before cooking 12 to 18 pounds of turkey all at once! By the time the bird comes out of the oven, we just want to get it cut and get to eating. Chef Nick Wallace learned the art of cooking turkeys (and a lot more) from his grandmother. Now he is the executive chef and consultant at the Mississippi Museum of Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Palette CafĂŠ by Viking (380 S. Lamar St., 601-960-1515). He shared his tips and advice for carving your Thanksgiving turkey the right way.

Wyatt Waters’ Gilded Age PHOTOS COURTESY WYATT WATERS GALLERY

// by Joy Bethea

Wyatt Waters’ works from a trip to Italy are on display in Jackson and Hattiesburg. as well as in his latest book with chef Robert St. John, “An Italian Palate.”

E

mpty gold frames line the narrow walkway of Wyatt Waters’ art studio. More frames lie across two large worktables along with handfuls of wool, shiny gold foil and dirty rags. Waters gilded the frames for the 128 paintings in his exhibit. Though the entire frame project took two months, Waters did it because he likes “the way it makes the art look.” “I started noticing that museums always had hand-gilded frames that cause the art to stand out,” he says. Those frames were expensive, however. Waters reasoned that because artists had handgilded their own frames prior to the Industrial

58

Revolution, he could do the same. For Waters, that is a just a part of producing excellent work. Waters, an artist and resident of Clinton since high school, is renowned for his watercolor paintings. Most of his work depicts local cultures through subjects such as landmark sites, buildings and landscapes. The bright hues of Waters’ paintings seem more vivid than life, yet capture the essence and personality of each subject. His contribution to Mississippi art earned Waters the 2010 Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. Coffee tables across Mississippi are graced with books he illustrated, including: “Wyatt Waters, Another Coat of Paint: An Artist’s View of Jackson, Mississippi,” “Coming Home to Mississippi,” “Wyatt Waters: Painting Home” and “Christmas Stories from Mississippi.” In October of this year, Waters and Hattiesburg chef Robert St. John began touring

November - December 2013 // The City’s Business and Lifestyle Magazine

for “An Italian Palate,” a coffee-table recipe book that is the result of their 10-week stint in Italy. It is part of Waters’ biggest art project, yet. Along with the book release, the original watercolors will be on display in two cities—65 paintings at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson and 63 paintings at Oddfellows Gallery in Hattiesburg (119 E. Front St., Hattiesburg, 601.544.5777). In his quaint, messy studio on the brick streets of Clinton, Waters explains the steps he takes in gilding each frame for the exhibits. “I take the frame and paint it with red oxide. See the red?” he asks, pointing at the thread of royal red, visible under the crackled gold of a completed frame. The oxide serves to smooth the frame. Next he applies an oil base solution and lets it dry until it is tacky. He covers the frame in sheets of gold leaf. Waters holds up a sheet of the golden paper. It is flimsy and similar to crunchy tissue paper. “You have to turn off the air conditioner during this part so that the air isn’t moving. You can’t even breathe,” he says. As he speaks, the delicate paper gently blows back and forth. Then it wrinkles. Before the gold leaf is completely dry, he rubs it down with lamb’s wool and buffs it. After the frame completely dries, Waters touches up blemishes and applies a sealant and stain. “I like to do it,” Waters says. He pauses and shakes his head. “No, I don’t like doing it. But I like the results. Most artists do not make their own frames. I don’t know anyone who gilds. My mother will come over here and say: ‘Wyatt, they look just fine. They are good enough, and no one is ever going to notice that.’” He imitates his mother in a soft, high-pitched voice. “My mother says that. But my father would have said, ‘Do everything the best you can do it.” And that is why Waters gilds his own frames. Because it is part of creating the best art he can. boomjackson.com


AMBER HELSEL

Ornamental // by Amber Helsel

Roz Royâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas ornaments are full of whimsy.

R

oz Royâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio (3252 N. State St.) is in a pretty old house with a tall wooden door. Her paintings, sculptures and other works are on display in the two rooms on the bottom floor. The number and variety of pieces seems endless, from fingerpaintings on canvas and paper to her many sculptures. She even makes ornaments. She creates them out of almost anything, including cheap shiny Christmas balls, ceramic ones she glazes and even paper bags. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like experimenting,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where (else) can you get a chicken ornament?â&#x20AC;? Though stores carry many different types of ornaments, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything like hers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little kids look for me because I have $5

ornaments,â&#x20AC;? she says, but she creates them for all budgets, with prices ranging from $5 to $50 and up. Her ornaments, though customizable, often feature her favorite subjects: chickens and angels. She paints chickens in memory of her great-great uncle Essix Barber, a farmer. One day a few years ago, she totaled her car in an accident. When she got back to her studio, she saw a chicken and thought of Barber. Roy began incorporating chickens into her work just as she started to paint angels after the death of her brother, Anthony, in 2005. In Royâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a few painted sculptures, but most are off-white. She originally painted them different colors, but now she lets her customers decide the colors they want. Art was always present in her life. When she was a little girl, her mother, Ann, knew Roy liked to talk, and she talked a lot. Her mom racked her brain for ways to keep Roy quiet.

One day, Ann bought her daughter a Dr. Seuss coloring book and crayons. Roy says she sat for hours and hours with that book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only time I was quiet,â&#x20AC;? she says. Roy says from then on her mother made sure to always keep art supplies on hand so Roy would never run out. Royâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first foray into the world of art was creating digital prints using the Paint program on her computer. After her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death in 2008, Roy, who suffers from polio, began attending classes at Very Special Arts, a program that promotes disabled artists, at the Mississippi Museum of Art. After Anthony died from a heart attack, Roy began to experiment with different mediums, including her signature fingerpainting and eventually, sculpture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art is therapy for me,â&#x20AC;? Roy says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soothing once you make that connection.â&#x20AC;? To see more of Roz Royâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, find her on Facebook, or call 601-954-2147.

       

 The women and men of the Millsaps faculty share a dedicationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to their students and to their own learning.

number of years the tree has been in existence

ome people start listening to it as soon as October. Others start pulling out their hair with frustration during the first week of December. Every holiday season, speakers everywhere start blaring the same classic Christmas songs. This repetition, while comforting for some, makes others dismiss Christmas music altogether. In the midst of the overplayed-holiday-music landscape of malls and TV specials, 37-year-old music lover Frank Kossen decided to take matters into his own hands. “I got tired of hearing people tell me that there wasn’t any good Christmas music,” Kossen says. “So one year, kind of on a lark, I sat down and put together something.” That something was a CD called “A Very Kossen Christmas,” with an eccentric mix of music ranging from obscure jazz songs from the 1940s to punk holiday rock to tunes from Funkadelic’s Bootsy Collins. The first year, he passed out more than 300 copies to friends, family and assorted strangers. Six years later, Kossen’s eccentric mixes have a cult audience that spans America. “It gets played at office Christmas parties in New York City and on the beach in L.A.,” Kossen says. The keyboardist of the indie-folk powerhouse The Decemberists is a fan. Let’s make it clear: These mixes are not for sale. Despite Kossen’s expanding fan base (last year, he gave away close to 600 CDs), he still doesn’t have a website or even an official method of distribution. If you’re one of Kossen’s out-of-town friends, you can expect a CD in the mail, but for Jacksonians, running into Kossen when he has some CDs in his pocket on the street is the only way of procuring one. Going against the hyper-accessibility the Internet provides, Kossen’s hard-to-find mixes develop an inside-the-loop cachet. “A lot of times, if I sit at the Cherokee one night and have a drink, I’ll give five or six CDs away to my friends, and I’ll just give the rest of the ones in my pocket to whoever else happens to be in the bar,” Kossen says. A self-described “music nerd,” Kossen is the kind of fan was once referred to as a “crate digger,” someone with an unquenchable thirst for old records. From carols to cult hits, Frank Kossen is the king “I could spend a year of obscure holiday tunes. listening to albums I’ve never heard that came out in the ’70s and be perfectly content,” Kossen says. It shows in the mixes. Despite the obscurity of the source material, the mixes universally make Christmas a little brighter. “Everyone from my pastor to my punk-rock friends want a copy,” Kossen says. boomjackson.com

COOL TOO // canton

n o i t a n i Illum nimation andA

by Kristen Lucas

Canton shines with more than 200,000 lights each winter.

A

s the weather cools and the leaves begin to fall, Canton’s annual “City of Lights” comes alive for the holiday season. Beginning the day after Thanksgiving and lasting through Dec. 23, Canton’s Victorian Christmas festival offers sparkling fun for the entire family. The festival began in 1993 with 23 animation figures and a few strings of lights. Now in its 20th year, the festival adorns the city’s historic square with more than 200,000 glittering lights. Activities include horse-and-buggy rides, carousel and vintage-car rides, miniature train and fire-truck rides, and three museums featuring more than 135 life-size animation figures. Children line up for the carousel, and adults return to their childhood at the Canton Animation Museums. Welcome Center Manager Jana Padgett. Her favorite part of the festivities is the look of wonder on children’s faces. “It’s really magical how the kids faces light up when they first see their beloved Christmas characters, whether it be Rudolph, Santa Claus or Frosty the Snowman,” Padget says. The museums invite guests into a world of holiday cheer and memories of a rich history. Padgett enjoys seeing visitors learn more about their culture, their history,

and each other as they tour the three museums. “I love seeing the families that come every year. You’ll see greatgrandparents, grandparents, parents and children walk through the museum together. We have a ‘time machine’ in one of our exhibits, and it’s fun to see grandparents’ delight in describing their own experience of the past with their younger family members.” A $4 admission fee will admit one into all three museums. To join the fun, drive to Canton and park in the town square where you’ll see the lights and activities. While you’re in the area, grab a bite at Canton’s Two Rivers Café (1537 W. Peace St., Canton, 601.859.9999) or Mama Mia’s Pizza on the Square (103 W. Peace St., Canton, 601.407.1666). Also, be sure to check out the attractions that mark Canton as the film capitol of Mississippi. Canton has served as the set location for a number of major motion pictures, including the Coen brothers’ “O Brother, Where Art Thou,” Joel Schumacher’s “A Time to Kill” and Jay Russell’s “My Dog Skip.” The Canton Tourism Bureau offers set tours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Purchase tickets at the Canton Welcome Center on the west side of the square. For more information, visit cantontourism.com/Christmas.
