Meet the Artists: Emily Wallace

What would the Motel Art Show be without the support of the Southern Foodways Alliance? Each year the art show coincides with their annual symposium, so it's only fitting to include one of the most fun illustrators of food, Emily Wallace. She's done a lot of work for the SFA as well. 

Coming to Oxford from Durham, North Carolina she will certainly have her illustrations, but also ready to talk about her new book, Road Sides

Meet the Artist: Hollie Chastain

When I started the One Night Stand at The Ole Miss Motel it was all local artists. Ones that didn't have as many opportunities to show their work. That went on for the first few years, but I really had the hope of inviting out-of-town artists here too, ones that otherwise would not have shown in Oxford or even Mississippi. I wanted people to see the type of art scene that we as a community as capable of supporting and what we've created here. 

This year's Motel Show will have artists from as far away as Seattle, WA. Nine from out-of-town in total, with several local artists, also showing. 

One of those from another state is Hollie Chastain, a mixed media artist from Chattanooga, TN. You can get an idea of her work below or visit her website
