  2. Water: The Artist's Essential Element

    October 22, 2017, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Armstrong Gallery

    Water has been a continual source of fascination for artists throughout the ages. Not only do we have a primal connection to this life-giving substance, but water fascinates us with its beauty, power, and ability to constantly reshape the natural world. Artists have captured the subject using many different mediums; however it is the watercolor artist who combines the subject of water with the natural flowing property of the water medium itself. This exhibit will feature over twenty works from the Museum's extensive collection of watermedia paintings with a focus on waterscapes. Featured artists will include J.M.W. Turner, Don Nice, Eliot O'Hara, Oliver Corbett and Anne MacDougall. This exhibition is the fifth in a series, focusing on various artists, styles and trends, pulled exclusively from the Springfield Art Museum's outstanding collection of contemporary American aquamedia. This exhibit was organized by Cindy Quayle, Exhibitions Manager.

  3. Wonder Rooms: Ozark Collections

    October 22, 2017, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Weisel and Kelly Galleries

    Modern day museums developed out of two apparently basic aspects of human nature - our curiosity and our desire to collect. Early collections were arranged and contained within private homes in rooms referred to as cabinets. These collections usually included a wide range of objects from taxidermy to paintings and sculpture. As their popularity grew, they began to be called wonder or curiosity cabinets, from the German "wunderkammer." "Wonder Rooms" examines this human desire to collect, with a specific focus on private collections in Southwest Missouri, in order to discover the underlying stories and driving impulses behind collecting. The exhibit will present representative works from a number of local collections, and will feature a wide range of media arranged in 'rooms,' including ceramics, photography, outsider art, local art, furniture, prints, and drawings.

    1 Million Cups Springfield is the third largest 1 Million Cups Community out of nearly 100 national and international communities. The program was created by the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, Missouri, based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a cup of coffee. Each community uses the same format; 2 presenters, 1 hour, lots of free coffee, and asking of the generous question of “What can we as a community do to help your business?"
