January 2015 Second Saturday Guide

Arts & Letters, 214 S. Campbell, presents Birds of a Feather by H.E. Croan, plus a post-holiday ornament and stocking sale.  All ornaments and stockings will be 20% off.  From the artist: “Working in acrylic inks I create stories from seemingly insignificant splatters of paint. I pour water and drip ink on watercolor paper to create washes and splatters of color.  After the paint dries I look for images in it much as one would look for images in the clouds and begin to draw what I see.  I work back and forth between drawing and painting the image until it is complete.  I draw inspiration from my life and my thoughts on the elusive realm of the subconscious and the divine.  My current work combines my experience as a mother of two young children with my thoughts on the creation and origins of life.  The making of a new life is extraordinary but also rather ordinary; new lives are made every day and they are taken every day.  I am interested in where this life comes from, where it goes and what it means while it is here.”  (417) 830-8186 www.artsandlettersspringfield.com


BookMarx, 325 E. Walnut St., Ste. 101, presents Precious Cargo II: Another Year of Ar(k)typical Assemblages by Kathryn Zerbe. From the artist: “An ark has been defined as something that affords protection and safety. This series of work combines ‘found elements’ of nature and of human manufacture to create an impression of mutual responsibility. Each composition provides a means by which to ponder, through archetypical imagery and reflection—both metaphorical and literal—one’s individual part in the stewardship of all that we have been given. Life is precious. God is good.” www.facebook.com/bookmarxbooks

Fresh Gallery, 400 W. Walnut, presents Featured Artist Katelyn Butler, 2014 winner of the Fresh Air Open Juried Competition. In April 2014, Fresh Gallery was thrilled to host a juried competition featuring 2-D and 3-D works. From that competition emerged jewelry artist Katelyn Butler. A student at Missouri State University, Butler is completing her BFA and is expected to graduate in spring 2015. The winner of the 2014 Women’s Jewelry Association Designer/Creator scholarship, and both the Nancy Lumpee Pate and Mayme C. Hamilton scholarships, Butler is also the recipient of the 2014 SNAG student scholarship to attend the annual conference. Her work has been included in juried exhibitions in the USA and Japan. “As an undergraduate, my primary focus has been to challenge my technical abilities while employing a sense of visual aesthetic. I want people to respond to my work by looking very closely. I am also concerned with the idea of impermanence, and the immortal nature of the material that I work with in relation to the ephemerality of my own body. Because of the unyielding nature of the material, I am constantly required to flex my own intentions in order to abide by the temperament of the material” Butler says. www.freshgallery.org (417) 862-9300 Open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. T-Sat, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. during Art Walk
