HC Porter's gallery adds some needed eccentric charm to downtown Vicksburg. Her photography is beautiful and the artistic elements she adds to make her prints are truly unique. I love stopping in her shop any time I'm in the downtown area.

Nice contemporary mixed media art gallery. Art pieces are gorgeous! Staff member working there was very nice and helpful regarding the artwork and things to do locally. Too pricey for me. I couldn't afford anything. Still enjoyable to look around.
