January 2017 Gallery Guide

Art Inspired, 331 S. Campbell, the northwest corner of Campbell and Walnut, features Photography and Digital Art by Alan O’Neal.

About the Artist: “I am a retired engineer that started photography before I can remember. Some of the works I offer for sale were taken nearly 25 years ago. I grew up in the country, still live in the country, and have a fondness for nature. In addition to my photos, in 2004 I started doing Digital Art, as I choose to call it. This is a process where I take a photo and create an alternate image out of it. Many times, the final results will have no appearance of being a photograph. Sometimes they do, and only I know that it is different from the original photo. Other times the result does appear to be a photo, but with a difference that the viewer realizes it has been creatively enhanced. It is something I find both fun and challenging. I find it neat that it is possible to have an alternate image of a good photo that is also pleasing. It is also satisfying to take a less pleasing photo and create a desirable image from it. I create my digital art only from pictures that I have taken. I do all my own picture taking, processing, printing, mounting, and framing. My largest printer is a 44” wide. Everything I do has been self-taught. That may not make it the best, but it is definitely original.” (417) 868-8084 Open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. M-Sat

BookMarx, 325 E. Walnut St., Ste. 101, presents Featured Artist Jammie Russell in January.

About the Artist: “I started painting in 1997, two weeks after my dad passed away. I started in oils, which is the medium I still use today. I watched Bob Ross, Helen Van Wyke, and Bill Alexander on television. I try to paint on location as much as I possibly can because it helps with the end result of the painting.

“I paint to enrich people’s lives and glorify God. I paint the Ozarks because I lived here all my life. I enjoy painting the area where I live and the old barns, houses and the old water mills as well.”

Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, presents Energy Unbridled: The Art of David Tummons.

From the Artist: “I have a tendency to march to the beat of a different drummer. I believe all people have some form of God-given talent, mine started early in the form of drawing. I grew up in a rodeo environment and have enjoyed creating pieces that remind me of that period in my life. These pieces were originally more photo realistic, but I began to feel the need to let my energy and imagination go a little crazy. This show depicts elements of my past along with my desire to let my creative, energetic, and passionate side express myself outside the lines. I hope you enjoy this show.” —David Tummons (417) 616-6488
