New Alex North calendar to be unveiled Sunday

The Biloxi Visitors Center will host the unveiling of well-known Coast photographer Alex North’s 2017 Heaven’s Gateway Calendar on Sunday.

The event, which takes place from 2 to 4 p.m., will be in the Visitors Center lobby, where North will sign autographs.

A native of the Gulf Coast, and an avid outdoorsman, gardener and photographer, North says, “my main subject matter is our God-given natural surroundings and the wildlife that call it home.  I try to capture things you don’t see, be it a stunning sunrise, Osprey fishing, or a bloom opening.  My goal is to capture it as it happens and share it with you through photography.”

The calendars are available for $12 each and refreshments will be served during the unveiling.

The Biloxi Visitors Center, open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., also houses a gift shop where Alex North prints and books are available for purchase.
