Here’s a Taste of the Jan. 4 Art Walk
Twin Artists at Studio 405
Twin Artists Louise White Prater and Lucille White Hammond signed prints at Studio 405 during the Jan. 4 Art Walk. Born identical twins in 1920 in Springfield, Louise and Lucille displayed unusual artistic ability even in elementary school. The pair’s work has appeared in juried shows including WaterColor USA at the Springfield Art Museum, the National Exhibition at the Norfolk Museum of Art in Norfolk, VA, and the Invitational Art Exhibition at the Butler Institute of Art, Youngstown, OH. Their originals and limited edition prints are available at National Art Shop, 509 S. National, 417.866.3743, or www.twin-art.com
Springfield artist Mary Alday displayed her whimsical glad rags for faeries at Studio 405. Each tiny garment is a combination of freehand drawing, painting and layers of gaily-colored dried flowers and plants grown on Alday’s farm.
Comic Book Capers at Fashioned by Jaye,
Local Comic Book Artists were on hand at Fashioned by Jaye, where Bill Baunach, of Comic Book Portraits by Bill, 417.860.2436, unveiled his portrait of owner Jaye Coltharp’s alter ego, Electric Blue. Note the entourage of worshipful cats!
