 Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport has just installed a new art exhibit featuring original pieces by Gulf Coast local, Mary Louise Porter.
Porter, a contemporary landscape painter, draws inspiration from common areas found in nature. She enjoys working with acrylic and other mediums to engage the viewer emotionally and visually;
sometimes layering with mixed media and cut canvas to create texture and pattern throughout the landscape.
Porter’s journey as a landscape artist is rooted in the rich soil of Louisiana, with wanderings in the woodlands and hills of Arkansas, and moored to the warm healing salt waters of the beaches and marshes of Mississippi’s Gulf Coast.
The Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport Art Program currently has four existing exhibits that aim to enhance
the experience of airport users, educate visitors and locals on the cultural heritage of the area, and showcase the artistic development of the Coastal Mississippi Region. Porter’s work can be found on the second floor of the terminal building.
