 Bruce Seabolt Art Exhibit

"Craig Brumfield Art of Nature" Exhibition

Craig was born in Biloxi and raised across the bridge as a kid in Ocean Springs fishing and exploring what the neighborhood had to offer.  He studied at the local junior college and University of Mississippi in Fine Art.  His work evolves thru the studies and sketches of marine life, wildlife, and trees along with any other gifts nature has to offer.  An avid saltwater angler and outdoor enthusiast - Years of working and fishing at Chandeleur Islands and in the Gulf of Mexico added to his love of the water and nature.

His passion, whether turkey hunting in the spring or chasing saltwater fish year round is a reflection seen in Craig’s work.  Working in a variety of medium - A deep love of oils, also pencil, ink and watercolor … helps create his vision onto canvas, wood, or paper.

The exhibit will be located on the third floor of the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum from August 16th  to January 2019  Regular visiting hours are 9:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Saturday and 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sundays.
