September 2016 2nd Saturday Guide

Art Inspired, 331 S. Campbell, the northwest corner of Campbell and Walnut, presents Featured Artist Carrie Miller for September. From the Artist: “My style is more about freedom of expression than beauty; that’s why most of the faces may not be considered attractive by most people and the backgrounds are patterned. Inspiration comes from nature and how I feel at the time that I start an image. Drawing is spiritual to me personally. You could call it yoga/meditation. It makes me happy and I want to share my happiness.”   (417) 868-8084 Open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. M-Sat


Rosette Studios: Arts & Letters, 214 S. Campbell, presents Gallery Artist Dane Jones with Weird and Winsome Wonders of the Wide Wide World and Featured Store Artist Kendle Durden in September.

From Artist Dane Jones: “My work derives from the ample supply of scraps, recycled materials, found objects, garbage, and many more things from our throwaway society. I ask my viewers to search and find something that could be responsible for opening new ideas or thoughts on how we use and manipulate materials. Looking at things differently, learning to see things in a new form and developing your own ideas from that experience, that is where I wish the viewer to go.”

From Kendle Durden: “There are two things that are important to me about my work – it has to be functional, and it has to keep me entertained. Since attaining my BFA from MSU in 2011 I have been striving to make work that fits well in the hand and is also well made. At the same time, I came to the realization that I would have to keep my work ‘fresh’ to prevent boredom. So while my themes may stay similar, the individual items still can make me laugh and are often a springboard for other ideas. Although the best part is often the reactions from other people; from ‘….Eewwwww’ to ‘Awesome!’” (417) 987-9155


BookMarx, 325 E. Walnut St., Ste. 101, presents Featured Artist Arrow Rene and her show, O Lungo Drom.

From the Artist: “This body of work explores a journey of being thrust into the bowels of growth and reflection metaphysically and literally. Experimenting with plants, reclaimed wood and often forgotten objects.”

Arrow has been painting since she can remember. She is often inspired by dreams, which are expressed in surreal images using paints, clays, and natural and found materials.

Her travels, time living in the Pacific Northwest as well as her love for street art can be found in her work.

Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, marks the return of one of the Walk’s favorite artists with Imagined: The Art of Daniel Flodin.

Artist Statement: Imagined is an unguided journey into atmospheres, structures and shapes.

“The paintings in this body of work were executed without reference. Perhaps a thought or a daydream served as inspiration, but the process of creation did not include a photo or object to guide me. It was enjoyable to work in this way; I painted in an entirely organic fashion and allowed imagination to take control!

“As you view the work, allow your imagination to lead the way. My inspiration and your interpretation will likely be completely different. However, only your interpretation matters—nothing else.” —Daniel Flodin. (417) 616-6488
