 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.

Hey artists...those of you with pieces in Front & Center at Maple Uncommon will need to read this super-important message. Artwork will be available to pick up on Sunday, August 25 from 1 to 3pm at Andrew Batcheller's studio. The address is 2102 S. Connor Avenue, Joplin. Please be considerate of Andrew's studio space and pick up your work promptly at the specified time. He's being extremely generous to volunteer his space and he's a busy BUSY artist.

If you are unable to pick up your own work, you may make arrangements for a friend/family member to pick up. However, we do need to know about this ahead of time in order to release your work. A simple reply with the name of the person who is picking up on your work will be appreciated.

Lastly...every show we've had, there have been pieces that have not been picked up during the designated timeframe by the artist or by proxy. Unless you have made special arrangements, all artwork that is not picked up will be considered abandoned and will be used in future fundraising efforts by JRAC for the benefit of JRAC. I hate to be draconian about it, but we must be responsible and communicate ahead of time if we need special arrangements for pickup. We're all adults and professionals, right?

Thank you so much for making this a successful show with your fabulous work. I'm very proud of the robustness of talent we have in our wonderful JRAC community.

Featuring artist Dianne Miller. Dianne will be participating in the inaugural Studio Tour. Dianne loves creating dramatic fused glass vases that can serve as a focal point. Fused glass serving platters, bowls and vases certainly add artistic flair to any decor as well as function for entertaining. She enjoys bringing out the personality of the glass through the color selection, the design, the cutting, and the kiln-fired process. You can find Dianne’s work at Art Forms in Pittsburg and The Joplin Empire Market in Joplin. ... See MoreSee Less
