THE ART OF COLLABORATION
The Art of Collaboration is happening at Hyde House—soul sharing, laughter, partaking, celebrating—as day by day, my dream unfolds for artCentral’s inclusive, collaborating, thriving, magical family—artists, lovers of art and all those who appreciate and support the arts—working, creating and playing together to bring joy, encouragement, inspiration and beauty to each other and our community.
As I first asked for Hometown Bank’s underwriting, Lonnie Heckmaster, President of Hometown Bank, gave me an unqualified “Yes!”, and then he asked “What else can we do for you?”
My being new to my position as artCentral’s DirectorCurator and hearing Lonnie Heckmaster’s enthusiastic, positive response reassures me there are many of you out there wanting and ready to help artCentral enrich our community. Please don’t wait for me to ask. Call me (417-358-4404) and enjoy the opportunity to underwrite an Exhibition or join with us as a Business/Corporate member. Your collaborative support keeps artCentral strong and expanding.
Collaborative rhythms were the heartbeat pulsing energy and activity through Hyde House last Saturday with two Free Workshops back to back—Cindy Moore presenting the Art of Blogging in the morning and Tricia Courtney offering the Art of Upcycling for the afternoon. To these fine artists of word and image we offer our deep appreciation for your donation of your time, talent and energy.
Don’t miss our next Free Workshop, The Art of Yoga, an introductory class taught in our Main Galleries by yoga master Holly Royster on Saturday, 28 March at 10 am. Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org or (417) 358-4404.
For Wednesday, April 8th at 10 am, you’re invited to our 30th Anniversary RETROforward! celebration—our curbside Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting. Join us afterwards in Hyde House for Tricia Coates’s famous cinnamon rolls and tours of our elegant home. While on campus be sure to visit our Great Wall collaborative creation—under the direction of Joplin artist, Andrew Batcheller, assisted by a bevy of artCentral artists, artCentral Kids and artCampers—a superlative collaboration!
