This extra special event showcases some of America’s finest artists and allows patrons to mingle with the artists and talk with them about their influences, media and methods. Selected artists are listed here.
Sante South Wine Festival on Saturday has grown into Mississippi’s top luxury wine and food experience featuring more than 120 exceptional wines and fine food samplings from more than 20 top Mississippi restaurants. Friday night offers a preview of wines for those who participate in Fleet Feet’s “Run Now Wine Later” event.
And don’t forget Ridgeland’s OBO (One Behind the Other) Tandem Cycling Rally during the weekend as well. Mississippi’s premier Tandem Rally attracts cyclists from around the country to enjoy Ridgeland’s nationally-recognized bike paths.

“With my pieces, I try to create some of the things that entertain me so much. I want to make those ideas and feelings a little more permanent so that I can share them with other folks. My sculpture is basically about comfort. My people are always comfortable where they are, and they are pleased with what’s happening around them. They find peace in their music, religion, the people they love, and the simple things they love to do. Each little soulful character has an important story to tell, and I hope other people can look at them and find some connection.” -Susan Clayton
When creating one of her people, Susan first shapes the basic form and then goes back to add the expression, details, and textures. Once finished, the pieces are low fired, and then they are painted with different glazes that bring out those details and enhance contrast without taking away from the natural color of the clay.
