Whitehurst’s paintings strongly emphasize the tactile and interactive by incorporating things such as old buttons, clothing patterns, doilies and pages from novels. She uses acrylic paint and plenty of gel medium to create her works of art.
“I make art to process the past, to more fully live in the present and to create what’s next,” said Whitehurst, who is also a professional counselor. “I start with something that resonates with me.”
Around 20 works of art make up the “Mississippi Mandala” exhibition. Prints and notecards featuring Whitehurst’s art are available for purchase in the museum gift shop.
