IP Café

The Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center of Arts and Education offers hands-on classes, lectures, films, and more in the IP Culinary Arts Café. Ocean Springs Art Association members have been honored as the kitchen’s first exhibitors, including Mae Dillon, Gerrol Benigno, Patt Odom, Norma Seward, Susie Ranager, Susan Shepherd, Jasmine Henson, Mark Daynes and Jean Sparkes.

The artists’ works are on display (and for sale) for two months. Their work collectively features pottery, sculpture, paintings, photography jewelry and textiles.

Classes include East Meets West, and various “Girls Night Out” classes featuring dishes from places such as Kowloon, Hong Kong and Paris, France.

The Juried Committee that makes the selections is composed of a panel of well-known local artists well-versed in multiple mediums, who have committed to jury art for the Mary C. for the next two years. They cover a variety of mediums that encompass Glass, Wood, Metal, Jewelry, Pottery, Sculpture, Paper, Textiles, Painting (Oil, Watercolor, Acrylics), Pastels, Drawing, Mixed Media, Assemblages, Photography (digital & film), and more.

Criteria are rated from a composite scoring system of all the juried members over a one-week process evaluating photos of artwork, submitted via email.
