About H.C. "Chris" Porter

I'm a native Mississippian and a professional artist. I started my studio in 1987 in Jackson and after 20 years moved to Vicksburg. I was drawn by the historic building and the river views! My artwork reflects my love of Mississippi and its rich cultural and blues heritage.

H.C. "Chris" Porter purchased this condo in 2006

Why H.C. "Chris" Porter chose Mississippi

My contemporary southern loft is above my signature art gallery in historic downtown Vicksburg on the main street, Washington St. Washington St. is also the Blues Highway, Highway 61,which runs from Memphis to New Orleans. I have found Vicksburg to be a welcoming, artsy, historic and charming town. I have found my home here, but I travel often and am able to share my loft/home while I am away.

What makes this condo unique

I've been told Mississippi is the last mysterious state in the Union! Vicksburg is a wonderful place to explore Mississippi's unique and historic past. My loft is 3 minutes from the National Military Civil War Park, one block above our riverfront murals, three blocks from the Court House Museum and two blocks from our Mississippi River Museum. The award winning, local shopping, dining and sightseeing is all surrounding my loft. Newly opened, the only rooftop dining/bar in Mississippi is located across the street, 10 South, with it's tenth story view of the River and downtown Vicksburg (just in case my three story private roof terrace isn't enough!) I have created an artist's dream home and it is my pleasure to share it with you!

Perfect weekend in Vicksburg!

  • 5 of 5

Chris's loft is so convenient to all that we love in Vicksburg. It was wonderful to have her well-appointed kitchen --we found everything needed! The art, books and furnishings make for a warm, inviting space to relax and entertain. We appreciated the on-street parking steps from the door which made bringing in luggage and groceries a breeze. Downtown is so walkable, we found ourselves stepping out for coffee, off to visit our kiddos in their home, touring Catfish Row and poking through Lorelei Books and other shops giving us time to slow down and stretch our legs. With Hwy. 61 entering town just a few blocks upriver, we took a road trip into the Delta with its open country, red buds and fields and small towns. We are appreciative to Chris for generously sharing her loft the way one friend would open their home to another.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us! I enjoyed your art, and can feel your compassion for different cultures. Your books are allowing the victims of the Katrina tragedy tell their story, mostly by the pictures! Very touching!! We really enjoyed coming back to your home for relaxation, after exploring Vicksburg! Ann from Fulton, Mississippi

Beautiful Loft!

  • 5 of 5

My husband is a creative soul and when we walked in He was in LOVE! The decor and the layout of the loft was perfect! We felt at home and very comfortable. The loft had all the amenities we needed. The deck up on top of the building was so nice for morning coffee. The staff in the art gallery below were very helpful and so nice! We had a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

The Artist Loft is a beautiful space and there is lots of room. The beds were very comfortable. We greatly enjoyed touring the Vicksburg Civil War park. The person who helped us upon arrival was very kind (Katherine). It was a nice stop for us on our trip through the south.

Beautiful Loft and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the art, photographs and the iron pieces that enhanced this large loft. Paul and Bridgette were very welcoming. Chris Porter photographed Katrina survivors on the Mississippi coast, had them silk screened and then painted the images with acrylic paints and colored pencils. Really unique art work. The gallery displays her series of Blues musicians.

The loft is in a great location downtown, walking distance to restaurants, flood wall murals, some historic homes, and the old courthouse that has Civil War memorabilia.

The Big Muddy restaurant on Washington Street had Blues musicians on weekend nights. Also 10 South had music and good food.
