Arts & Letters presents Celebrating Nature’s Art by Gail Rowley on the Gallery Wall and Face in the Crowd by local graffiti artist John Worcester on the Salon Wall for First Friday and Second Saturday. From Artist Gail Rowley: “I’m a nature photographer who lives in the rural Ozark hills near Willow Springs, Missouri. I can’t help it; I find I just have to chronicle the nature around me. My past work and studies have been in education, child development and ecology. I’ve been a long-time member of the Missouri Stream Team Program, and am currently involved in prairie restoration. As artist and owner of Ozark Stream Photography, I sell nature cards and custom prints. I’ve been exploring the outdoors all my life, and I love to document some of nature’s less-noticed treasures. This exhibit will be a celebration of both nature’s power and nature’s secrets. I will display my art in a variety of fine art printings – some with handcrafted, solid Ozark-wood frames. From scenes and critters to super-macro, there will be a wide spectrum of our natural world with a focus on the Ozarks. I try to capture photos, only to find that I am captured by this power called nature!” With Face in the Crowd, graffiti artist John Worcester has created portraits of people of artistic and cultural significance in the Springfield arts scene. The portraits are small, mostly 8 x 10 inches, done in acrylic and aerosol paint on canvas. Also enjoy live music and a tasting with a local brewery during Art Walk, details to be announced.
