The Mashup Art Show Recap

Art. Fashion. Community. The Mashup offers it all and more. Saturday, November 5th, 2022, creatives and artists from all over Mississippi; and the mid-South assembled in downtown Jackson to participate in a night of celebration and communal fellowship. Alexis Noble, the curator and contributing artist, pooled her and her teams' resources, skills, and talent to bring the second installation of The Mashup to life. Hosted by the phenomenal Mistress of Ceremony, BE (@bewithone.e) and with performing artists Devmaccc, Ariel J, Vitamin Cea, Briar Blakley, and NAHVEYAH the entertainment left nothing to be desired, even featuring the live musical stylings of Shed Light.

Empowering local artists to create unique works while networking and growing into their full potential is only part of the aims of The Mashup. Most importantly, we want artists to be able to sustain themselves economically so that they can continue to flourish within their creative journeys. The Mashup was designed to ensure that resources and opportunities flow between local collectors and creatives who have poured themselves into each piece that they create. As the Communications Manager, I have had the pleasure of working alongside amazingly talented collaborators that truly embody the spirit of what The Mashup is built to be, a safe space focused on community, fellowship, and celebration of Black art. An experience like The Mashup can only exist because of the efforts of all of the participants, artists, and patrons.
