  3. The Structured Landscape

    December 8, 2017, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Armstrong Gallery

    Buildings of all shapes, sizes, and styles are ever-present in our environment. A simple landscape becomes more interesting when dwellings or other architectural structures are included as part of the scene. Familiar structures in a painting may help tell a story, evoke memories, indicate a place, or define a moment in time. They engage the viewer with questions such as: where is this place, who constructed these buildings, why were they built, and where are the people who built them? What memories will the artwork in this exhibit evoke in you? This exhibition is the sixth in a series, focusing on various artists, styles and trends, pulled exclusively from the Museum's outstanding collection of contemporary American aquamedia. This exhibit was guest curated by Cindy Quayle, Exhibitions Manager.

  4. Wonder Rooms: Ozark Collections

    December 8, 2017, 10:00 AM - 6:00 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.
