Art Notes from Hyde
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
A new exhibition has arrived in
the gallery and we welcome the beautiful oil
paintings of Joplin artist Frank Young. Last week
I told you a bit about this artist and now that
his work is on display, I hope that many of you
will come and see these beautiful pieces! This
show will remain in the gallery until September
14th, and we are open weekends and Fridays from
noon until 5:00. I want to thank our underwriter
for this new show, HOMETOWN BANK, for their
willingness to support artCentral in this helpful
way. We could not continue to do what we do here
at artCentral without the help of our local
businesses, and we so appreciate them all! As I
complete the records and assessment of our recent
childrens artCamp I think of the various
community friends that have assisted us in that
endeavor each year, which include the local
foundations who have been so generous and the
Anna Isles Foundation and another anonymous
patron who scholarshiped 5 students in 2008,
assisting them with tuition fees. This year we
ended with 60 students attending during twelve
days and filling 212 class spaces. Most days we
had two classes, some days three. And with
September on the immediate horizon, my calendar
tells me there is the third in the series of
artist lectures Tuesday, September 2nd at 6:30.
This newest offering is titled
PLANNING", and will benefit both artists and
collectors. Come to the gallery and hear Michael
Bell, retired museum curator and art appraiser,
speak on this subject, and I look forward to
seeing you all at the new show!
