Christ Episcopal Church offers ‘4th Sunday at 4’

Fourth Sunday at Four this month, May 26, will feature two exhibiting artists. Each is a potter now living in Pass Christian.
Carol Ellis began working with clay in 2003, hand building and wheel throwing. Using both methods has allowed her to reproduce the fluidity and symmetry she sees in nature. She says that interacting with local an national potters has inspired her and added to the creativity of her work.
Carol finds that using various glazing and firing techniques provide endless possibilities for her art.
Lisa Watson discovered her love of working with clay while attending Country Day School in New Orleans. This love led her to pursue a degree in Art History at Newcomb College. Influenced by art, and by the artists in her life, Lisa began to create her own work.
She is known for the simplicity of her forms and for the use of interesting glazes.
The performing artist for May 26 is Meggan Gray, known to many of us as a co-anchor of Good Morning Mississippi, on Channel 13 from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. She is the only personality at WLOX (ABC) who was born and raised here in south Mississippi.
Meggan discovered her voice when in junior high, and that led to many performances while she attended St. John High School. From the chorus in "Bye Bye Birdie" she went on to play Grace Farrell in the school production of "Annie," and, while a senior, to playing Sandy in the Gulfport Little Theatre production of "Grease." She then attended Auburn University where she continued to perform - as Hope Harcourt in "Anything Goes," the sopran lead in "A Night with Dick and Oscar" (a Rogers and Hammerstein Review), Ophelia in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," and, once again, Sandy in "Grease."
In 2008 Meggan was cast as Maria in KNS' production of "The Sound of Music."
This was, she says, her "dream role." She has also performed at Center Stage in Biloxi on several occasions. Meggan enjoys the stage, and hopes to perform more in the future.
