SOME NIGHTS MAKE MAGICAL MEMORIES
Some nights make magical memories.
Tomorrow night will be the first of three magical Thursday evenings when, from 6 to 10 pm in the Main Galleries, Stacey Stiles leads “Yoga by Candlelight” followed by wine, sweets and savories. The public is invited. Your suggested donation of $10 will benefit artCentral’s community outreach programs. Bring your mat and come dressed to stretch in the midst of exceptional art, knowing you’re helping sustain the rotating exhibits in artCentral’s Satellite Galleries.
The magical moments and memories of Friday evening just past are still fresh and delicious to savor. We send out our art-felt Thank You! to our generous Underwriters, Crackpot Pottery and Art Studio and Southwest Missouri Bank, who made possible the evening, showcasing the amazing Exhibition—Collective Perspectives: Clay to Canvas—embellishing Hyde House with enchantment.
To create magic requires magicians. Many brought their talents, hands and hearts to this special night. Volunteering to make the evening’s magical moments were Judy Goff, doyenne of artCentral cuisine, assisted by Trisha Coates and Corinne Waggoner; Cindy Chilton with her glamorous table settings; Kelly Heidlage, artCentral’s Reception photographer; host Alex Boyer; and Board Members
The wizardry greets you when you first arrive to find on the lawn three, towering, totemic stanchions complete with a QR code perched on a wand. Read the image with your smart phone and you magically meet the artists riffing on their work and inspirations. As you tour the show you’ll find more QRs scattered throughout, adding delightful dimensions to your viewing experience. Look for colors subdued, saturated and marvelously applied. Look for lines enchanting, entrancing and lyrical. Look for surfaces both gleaming and soft. You’ll find all these and satisfying surprises you’ve yet to imagine.
