WELCOME-COME ON IN!
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
1929 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.
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.
Bozarts is a vibrant venue for art events and an exhibit space for local and regional artists.
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.

BUILDING A GALLERY
The gallery displays works of local, regional, and
national artists on a rotating basis and promotes a
fresh and contemporary approach.
It is also the home of the Bozarts Alliance, a
cooperative of artists who display their work at
Bozarts on a permanent basis.
Why was it established?
To prove Mencken wrong. Bozarts Gallery
provides a vibrant venue for art events. The
gallery showcases the works of talented
professional artists residing, where else but, here
in the heart of the South.
