Birds Eye Tattoo & Art Gallery, 300 W. McDaniel, presents Featured Artist Donna Rustin in October. Artist Statement: “My art represents a past of childhood abuse, addiction and a life long struggle with mental illness. Putting things together, over time, piece by piece with much thought and reflection until each piece fits precisely where I want it. This is much easier done in art than in life. Putting a piece together takes a lot of time, just like putting a life back together. My time is spent searching for those pieces in art and in life.” (417) 771 5487. Open 12-9 p.m. T-Sat

Linda Kirchner: A lifetime of jigsaw puzzles, travel and geometry combine to create Linda Kirchner’s unique art. Her 28 years of teaching geometry brings in a playful obsession with parallel lines, polygons, arcs and circles. Add in her love of travel and a variety of topics from urban and rural settings find their way to her work. Her abstract art emerges as she lets the angles and curves create a new world. So, numerous color changes, a wide range of topics and boundless shapes produce a stained glass effect that will dance from her canvas into your heart
Lea Dingman: “I paint to live and breathe. Before painting I saw black and white; now I see color. It is literally life and breath to me today. I am accepting gifts from God now. Every time my paints touch canvas, I truly believe that I am an artist and I receive the blessing of creativity unconditionally. Each painting comes with a word to my heart that I translate to what my eyes can see. Understanding each painting has a mission, a purpose, as it waits for the one it was intended for. I am blown away by the magic of it all as I have no choice but to catch the blessings as they fall.” (417) 862-9300 Open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. T-Sat, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. during Art Walk.

Hotel Vandivort, 305 E. Walnut St., a proud Art Walk sponsor, presents October Featured Artist Elizabeth Chapman
Artist Statement: “As an abstract expressionist artist, I paint intuitively. For me, intuitive painting is kind of like going on a trip with vague plans—or maybe no plans at all. I’m deeply inspired by music, but sometimes I paint without it, dancing to my own song as I place colors and lines on the canvas. Whether I paint abstracts, florals, or people, each painting merges my experiences and memories, and it’s all in response to the beauty I see. I’m often asked how long it takes me to complete a painting, to which I respond, “All my life!” And the journey is pure adventure!
“My upbringing was full of adventure, too, with my childhood split between two distinct and influential cultures. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, I moved to rural Missouri as a girl, from the city to the country. Even though I’ve now spent most of my life in the United States, I still feel strong ties to Hispanic culture, and I attribute my love of color to my Spanish heritage: My paintings have been described as bold, lively, and vivid, with a complexity of layers.” Open for First Friday and Second Saturday.

Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, presents Stephanie Cramer: Blue of the Night, Meets Gold of the Da
“Start with color
Move with the mark,
Complete the gesture.
I see painting as a journey, taking expected an unexpected directions along the route. The unanticipated I value most – finding answers to questions not yet formulated, questions formulated not yet answered.
Why would we continue the quest if we knew all the answers?” – Stephanie Cramer (417) 616-6488 www.obeliskhome.com
