Great evening at Art Central in Carthage, MO. This was their Members exhibit and they had a great show with several JRAC members involved. Emily Rose was awarded Gold. We are so proud of you, Emily! Other JRAC attendees and participants in the show were Andrew Batcheller, Melody Knowles, Connie Miller, Linda Teeter, and Janice Kidman. Also Laura Lowry-Greene from the Uncommon Gallery in Columbus, KS. came to the show to support all her artist friends. We were very happy to see her there. JRAC artists should take the short drive to Columbus, KS. to view the JRAC exhibit now on display at the Uncommon Gallery, just 20 minutes from Joplin.

This is a reminder about the JRAC Show and Reception at Maple Uncommon in Columbus, KS. on Sunday, June 25th from 1:00 – 3:00 in the afternoon. Just a very short 22 minute from Joplin. Since Laura Lowery-Greene has been so generous to us and has funded the past receptions, the board thought we could show our appreciation by helping out. Each board member has agreed to provide wine, snacks, appetizers and/or a dessert for the reception. Since we hope for a big crowd, we also hope other JRAC members would agree to help out as well. If you are attending and can bring something for the reception, please post back to us or contact a board member you know. We would really appreciate your help.
