“Art in the Garden – Community Birdhouses and presentation by Felder Rushing”

You may have heard Felder Rushing on the public radio while driving in your car or listening at home, but NOW you will have a chance to put a face to the name, or better yet, a face to his distinctive voice. In Southern Living’s 25th anniversary issue, Felder was featured as one of “twenty five people most likely to change the South.” He has been singled out in New York Times articles, hosted and appeared on television programs, and is especially known for his popular weekly “call-in” garden program on Mississippi Public Radio as “The Gestalt Gardener.”

The Hattiesburg Arts Council will be hosting a presentation, “Art in the Garden,” by Felder Rushing promptly at 2pm on Saturday March 23rd at the Hattiesburg Cultural Center, 723 North Main Street. The doors will open at 1:30 for you to find a seat or view the community birdhouse contest submissions as well as feather art of Jackson artist, Elaine Maisel and glass work from Dee and Toddy Tatum’s Seraphim Studio. The awards for the birdhouse competition will be announced following Felder’s presentation. Feel free to stay for the reception and enjoy festive banjo and fiddle tunes with Mississippi Sound Wagon musicians, Jack Magee and Shelley Gendusa, while viewing the delightful garden art sale and extravaganza.
