FALLING IN LOVE
Do you remember the last time falling in love happened to you? Do you remember your consuming infatuation for your new romantic heart throb or that book you couldn’t put down or the view that took your breath or the horse that nuzzled your neck?
These are my symptoms: I actually feel giddy at the prospect of each encounter. I’m obsessed. I go to bed and wake up thinking about the object of my affection. I try to put my best foot forward.
My condition is totally synchronistic with artCentral’s coming Exhibition, PASSION, opening February 20 and generously underwritten by Cherry’s Custom Framing and Art Gallery and KOKA Art Gallery.
This Exhibition will be the perfect opportunity for me to go public and reveal the source of my devotion. My answer will be hanging on a Gallery wall beside the personal passions of Joplin Regional Artists Coalition’s accomplished creatives. Come and see!
While all artCentral’s Exhibitions and Events appear as elegant acts of love, they happen because there’s a coterie of dedicated art lovers pulling strings at Hyde House. I offer my heartfelt thank you to artCentral’s Board of Directors and the artcentralFRIENDS who make our lovely magic.
President, Eric Haun, is a master of catalyzing ideas. When he’s not painting, writing or creating beauty with tresses, he’ll stuff envelopes or hang banners or whatever else needs doing. Treasurer, Pat Goff, is an absolute wizard with numbers. He kindly and consistently helps me reconcile the figures, as we prudently balance our non-profit budget. Membership Chairwoman, Gail White, (417) 310-7262, gives you and our local businesses and corporations splendid opportunities to partner with artCentral. Board Members Jackie Boyer, Helen Kunze, Sarah Ross, Brenda Sageng, Jane VanDenBerg and Dean Vandergriff show up, put hands to tasks and constantly inspire me.
Volunteer Judy Goff is the doyenne of the delicious delectables served from our vintage kitchen. Cindy Chilton is our talented impresario for staging our Opening and Event tabletops.
A special thanks to Cindy who enabled us to be environmentally conscientious stewards by participating in the recent e-waste collection. Cindy made the drive and delivered all our retired office equipment and electronics to the Pittsburg Recycling Center.
Thanks to all who’ve called and emailed to offer help. We appreciate all our artcentralFRIENDS.
