July 2018 Second Saturday Guide


Art Inspired, 230 S. Market, presents Featured Artist Jessie Winnie. Jessie Winnie’s story as an artist is special for many reasons. At a young age, she was diagnosed with a type of Cerebral Palsy that impaired her motor skills. Jessie’s muscles were “loose” and she was unable to hold anything.

“My arms would flop around, plus I had tremors where my hand would shake. It was hard to keep my hand steady so when I started to learn how to draw, I would stab holes in the paper, but it was the only way I could control the pencil. I would sit outside on the porch with my dad and we would draw together. He was my teacher. Over time, I learned how to control the pencil and strengthened my muscles. Now I am stronger, but when my arm is really tired, my hand will still shake.”

When asked what the creative process means to her, she replied, “Expressing my feelings, creating things. I like when people say, “I like it” and “good job” because when I was a kid, I had a hard time speaking and it was hard to understand people.”

Jessie has titled her photography collection The Four Seasons because her photos represent nature and animals as seen through the various seasons. (417) 868-8084 Open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. M-Sat


Birds Eye Tattoo & Art Gallery, 300 W. McDaniel, is proud to present Featured Artist Clark Medley in July. “I have worked on my craft since the 80s: always developing my voice as an artist,” Medley said. His work in cipher/cryptic language takes an abstract form with modern and contemporary elements, fashioning depth and contrast to create drama between the symbols and the surface on which they rest. “The thing I love most is watching people who are viewing my work. They seem to realize my work is a puzzle and try to figure it out. The moment when they realize I’ve made up my own language seems to pull them in and connect.” (417) 771 5487. Open 12-9 p.m. T-Sat

Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, proudly presents Rosie Winstead: Intermission.

Artist Statement:




  1. a pause or break.

“he was granted an intermission in his studies”

synonyms: interval, interlude, halftime, entr’acte, break, recess, pause, rest, respite, breathing space, lull, gap, stop, stoppage, halt, hiatus;

cessation, suspension;

informal breather, time out

“refreshments are available during the intermission”

  • an interval between parts of a play, movie, or concert.

“The painting process is constantly changing for me. There are a lot of intermissions that happen when you work from home. It is almost impossible to come back to the same person I was before the break. But then again, maybe I need a break from that person I was before. Maybe these interruptions/intermissions are what is fueling the work? Maybe the intermission has something more to offer than the show itself.” – Rosie Winstead  (417) 616-6488
