An opening reception is set for 5 p.m. on Feb. 5 at the in Tupelo. This event is open to the public.

Fikes said she feels like she has come full circle upon this exhibition.

“I feel extremely blessed to have a solo exhibition this early after graduation,” Fikes said, “especially in my hometown gallery where I had simple drawings and paintings exhibited in elementary school. It feels like I have come full circle, and I am excited to share the artistry I have learned with the people I grew up around.”
