Mississippi Delta Artist Stan Street – Owner of Hambone Art Gallery

(Clarsksdale, Mississippi)

Owner of Hambone Art Gallery in Clarksdale, MS — Multi-talented Stan Street

As taken from Stan’s website, www.stanstreet.com, the biggest influence on Street’s art is the perspective of being a blues musician. Growing up in New York he was influenced by his father and uncle – classical percussionists – who encouraged his creativity. He took up sax, harmonica, percussion and singing, accumulating credits in award winning blues groups. He tours the Canadian blues festival circuit as well as blues festivals and honkytonks of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia.  Although Street called Florida his “home” for more than 25 years, he has moved to the heart of the Mississippi Delta, Clarksdale, Mississippi, where he finds common ground with the primordial blues of the Delta.

Putting the music in his head and the vision of his travels onto canvas are as natural as blowin’ a slow, low, blue note through his well-worked sax. Street readily acknowledges one art form supports the other and that his art work and his music are works in progress. Leaving open the question “does the music support the art or does the art support the music?” To the fans of Stan Street, that is a question that hopefully is never answered!
