Maven In Coahoma Hosts Kim Gibbs Duease

Back to my travels last weekend – I went from Oxford straight across the state into the heart of the Mississippi Delta to visit my friend Marilyn Storey (aka Maven in Coahoma) as she hosted the launch of Kim Duease’s line of fabric.

Marilyn has taken a spot on Delta Avenue in Clarksdale for her studio and let me tell you Clarksdale is rocking!
