PASSION is on our gallery walls, and our walls are glowing. Beauty, love and joy. Raw emotion, soul and feeling. Some yearning, too. In this dazzling art collection, you’ll find all of this in abundance.
Brought to artCentral by the Joplin Regional Artists Coalition from the studios of forty plus artists, we’ve more than enough passionate art to share—all here for you by the generous underwriting of Cherry’s Custom Framing and Art Gallery and KOKA Art Gallery, two Carthage businesses who faithfully support artCentral and the arts.
These artistic expressions are as diverse as the artists creating them. Some are stunningly bright and bold, others soothingly subtle and sublime. Some are surprising and others reassuring. Some playfully amuse, while others insistently challenge. Works on paper, canvas and bone with works of wood, fur and clay make this exhibit a multi-media courtship bouquet that artCentral extends to you.
artCentral not only has art for your enjoyment at Hyde House, we now have three Satellite Galleries: The Vestibule at the Carthage Library, The Downtown at Mother Road Coffee and The Atrium at Sirloin Stockade. To Julie Yockey, Director of the Library, Kara and Ed Hardesty at Mother Road Coffee and Terry and Billie McDonald at Sirloin Stockade, I say an art-felt “Thank You!” for the privilege of curating these spaces. Most all the works displayed are available for sale. Look, see, select and call me at (417) 358-4404 to make your purchase. Help us support our amazing artCentral artists!
Presently showing at Sirloin Stockade is Brenda Sageng’s “Life Evident in the Drift” featuring dramatic interpretations of places and spaces, derelict and resurrecting, filled with light, shadows and possibility.
The current exhibit at Mother Road Coffee, “SweatersUpcycled” is a delightful collection of wearable hats fashioned and framed by Joplin fiber artist Brenda Hayes.
At the Library’s debut exhibition you’ll find my own “Landmarks of Carthage” perched on the Library’s new exhibition easels.
Come tomorrow night to Hyde House. Celebrate PASSION with us at 6 pm with passionate art, libations, Judy Goff’s delightful delectables and Cindy Chilton’s artful tabletop creations and visit our Satellite Galleries, too!
