The Arts Council works to present, promote and preserve the Arts in our community. The Powerhouse Gallery Series is designed to provide regional artists with the opportunity to exhibit their works in a space designed to promote new artists, celebrate established artists and engage every spectrum of the community. The exhibit ideas are suggested by artists and provide an annual calendar of exhibits open to local artists. Each show is highlighted as part of the Oxford Art Crawl.
The program is presented in conjunction with the Oxford Artist’s Guild. By offering a regular series of shows that allows artist the opportunity to show new works, we hope to create widespread community support of visual artists. There is no submission fee to be considered for the Gallery Series. The process is open to professional, emerging, student and folk artists.
Apply here for the 2016 Powerhouse Gallery Series! The deadline to apply is October 30th!

Get out your lemons, grab your muddlers, and roll up your sleeves. The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council is asking for the community to submit original cocktail recipes for a new project: Yoktails!
Yoktails will be a collection of 10 Oxford cocktails to celebrate Square Table's 10th anniversary. The new mini-book will feature new art, stories, and cocktail recipes. “We wanted to do something that tapped into what makes Square Table successful. It is a testament to the committee that created Square Table as a fundraiser for the Arts Council that the book continues to sell 10 years later. I think it is that the book captures the food, artists and people that make our community special,” shared Wayne Andrews, Director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council.
Local writers, restaurants, and artists submitted new stories, art and recipes to compile the addendum to Square Table. Just as the original cookbook allowed residents to submit recipes, this new mini-book seeks cocktail recipes from the community.
Submit Your Cocktail Recipe
Submissions are no longer being accepted. Recipes are being reviewed by our panel of judges who have committed to tirelessly make, sip and select the winning cocktail to be included in the book.
The winning recipe will be revealed at a 10th anniversary celebration on October 25th where the Arts Council will celebrate the volunteers who created the book. For 40 years the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council has been fostering the arts in the Oxford-Lafayette community. Square Table has provided funding to support the Powerhouse Community Arts Center, community grants to local artists, and educational programs.

A series of three pop-up dinners are scheduled this fall to kick off the opening of Saint Leo, a new restaurant founded by Oxford resident Emily Blount, who is collaborating with chef Dan Latham (formerly of L&M's). They plan to bring simple, seasonal Italian fare to Oxford, including wood-fired pizzas, house-made pastas, and small plates made with locally sourced ingredients.
A brick-and-mortar location is slated to open early next year, but until then, get your pizza and pasta fix at our preview dinners!

Artist Lunch Trays
The Motel Art Show in partnership with St. Leo & the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council is offering a new opportunity to artists as part of the 2015 show. Each year the Motel Art Show features artists who transform rooms at the Ole Miss Motel into mini galleries and exhibit spaces. Artist participation is limited by the number of hotel rooms.
This year the show will feature a preview event offering advance admission (and sales) to those who purchase the preview ticket. The ticket includes a cocktail tasting sponsored by Cathead Vodka, Tasting Menu by St. Leo Food Truck on an artist created lunch tray, and early access to all the rooms.
The lunch trays, just like the ones from school, are available to any artist. This expands the number of artists who gain exposure during this popular event. The Arts Council is encouraging artists to include their contact information, websites, and social media links so the buyers can discover more about the artist who created their tray. The trays will be sold for $10 with the artist receiving 75% ($7.50), and the remainder donated to the Arts Council to support their community grants.
