Welcome to Bozarts Gallery! Our art gallery is located on Water Valley’s historic Main Street in the center of Mississippi’s Hill Country and just a few minutes South of Oxford.
The name “Bozarts” is a literary pun on the French term “beaux arts.” Despite H.L. Mencken’s famous 1920s assessment that the South is “the Sahara of the Bozarts,” you can find plenty of fine arts in the South and, of course, here at Bozarts Gallery. Bozarts Gallery offers Water Valley and the surrounding community an opportunity for viewing, experiencing, and purchasing original art works.
Our mission is to expand community appreciation of the arts & promote the town of Water Valley as an art destination. Bozarts is a vibrant venue for art events and an exhibit space for local and regional artists. In two show rooms, you will find a large variety of original art in numerous media by talented artists from the South. The gallery’s brick walls, mirrors, and original tin ceiling contribute to the unique atmosphere of the space.
Owners Mickey Howley and Annette Trefzer bought the two story Main Street building dating from the 1880s in the summer of 2005, two weeks before hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf coast, Since then, they have been working on bringing the space back to life and in December of 2009, Bozarts Gallery took shape as an exhibition space and artists collective. We offer 6 rotating shows a year and year round exhibition space for affiliated artists.
