Not your typical yard sale

By David Elliott - bio | email

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - If you stop by 835 Oakleigh Avenue in Gulfport on any Saturday in November you might be surprised at what you see in Sayward Duffano's front yard.

"I call it a yard sale," Duffano said, surrounded by an array of unique art.

The painter sets up artwork in her yard in what can be described as an outdoor art gallery. Duffano did this last year and the event was well received.

"People saw it from the road and had to come in and take a look," Duffano said.

Sayward Duffano will set up her paintings every Saturday from 9am until 3pm. The artist likes this approach to exhibiting here art because she enjoys meeting people face to face, rather than the customary putting work in a gallery and never seeing the person who buys the piece.

"I love it because I get to see their expressions. That's what art should be, connecting with people," Duffano said.
