Welcome

 The Joplin Regional Artists Coalition (JRAC) is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2010 by visual artists to network fellow artists to more effectively engage in cultural, economic, and educational artistic activity. The organization is not limited to Joplin artists, but encompasses the Joplin area.

JRAC membership includes professional and amateur artists, art enthusiasts, and patrons of the visual arts. Examples of artwork and contact information for our members can be viewed in this site’s Artist Registry. This is a showcase of the strength and diversity of the visual arts in this region. The registry also provides a centralized resource for businesses and citizens to choose to ‘buy local’ and enrich their community with unique artworks while supporting regional artists rather than purchasing mass-produced commodities of unknown origin.

If you are an artist, consider joining now in order to be included in the JRAC website artist registry to help promote your work, take part in upcoming professional development opportunities, and to be eligible to be included in a wide variety of local shows.

I'm so happy to remind all of our members of the upcoming show we hold annually at artCentral in February 2018. This show is always one of our most attended and highly lauded shows of the year. We are calling the show "Art Speaks" this year, and though there is no theme, we are insisting on all new work! If your submission has shown at a previous JRAC event, it will not be included. This is not intended to stress you as an artist, in one of the most stressful months of the year, but to keep our most recent work at the forefront. We have two months to accomplish this. Dates and drop-off times will follow as the event nears but I wanted to allow ample time for creation! That can be a bumpy, meandering road I know, so lets get to work!! ... See MoreSee Less
