Hi, Bess passed about 10 years ago. They had an auction of her private collectiion at the Ramada Inn in McComb, MS. I have 5 of her pieces, some large works included. Look up "The Summit Trio" and you'll probably get some info there. My Grandmother knew her, etc...
Hello, does anyone know any art history regarding Mississippi Artist Bess Dawson? I spoke with her over the telephone in Summit Mississippi around 1990, but haven't spoke to her since. Wonder what happened to her and her art?
