Friends and colleagues of the late Jackson artist James C. Patterson will gather Thursday at the Mississippi Museum of Art to celebrate his work, enjoy live music and bid on 25 of his iconic photographs.

The retrospective exhibit is set for 7-11 p.m. with live music provided by Bark, the Eric Stracener Trio, and Rhonda Richmond. A cash bar and light refreshments will be available with the silent auction set to close at 10:30 p.m.

Spearheading the event will be the non-profit James Patterson Memorial Foundation.

Katrina Hercules, who grew up in Jackson and is now a graduate student at UCLA, said the aim of the group will be to both preserve Patterson’s work and support up-and-coming photographers — just as he did.

Jackson Photographer, the late-James Patterson will have an exhibit, auction at the Jackson Museum of Art on Thursday.

“My family and I were really close to James from the time we first moved to Jackson, so we want to try and keep his spirit alive,” she said. “He was such a good advocate for the community.”
