Greetings All!

      I hope your holidays were bright. It may seem early but the JRAC board would like to get a jumpstart on our next Show. We are announcing our next group show at artCentral in February called “Kaleidoscope” Due to all the obvious reasons, once again and unfortunately, the opening reception will be virtual and brought to you via facebook live. It is not ideal, we realize, but with the help of Alicelynn and her strength in these matters, we will do our utmost to make it pleasing , entertaining and a fine showcase for all of our members and their work. The precise details, i.e, date and time will be forthcoming but what we will need as soon as possible, from all of our participating artists is a low to medium resolution photo of your intended submission. The photo you send should be the best possible representation of your work, as they will be showcased and discussed on our Facebook live presentation. If any of you have difficulty with this process, our kind and helpful webmaster, Koral Martin, has agreed to assist you. So please, do not hesitate to ask.
All photos are to  be sent to (Andrew Batcheller) I will then format and send to artCentral.
 All photos MUST be received by the 20th of January.! This is crucial so that we can construct and present the best possible showing.
We are very excited to see all of the new work from our incredibly talented members and the sooner we receive these photos, the better so please keep this in mind.
Thank you all and we wish you ALL THE  best in this upcoming new year! 
          JRAC Secretary, Andrew Batcheller

Maple Uncommon Artists Reception

Maple Uncommon Artists Reception

Once again Laura Lowry-Greene is hosting a reception in honor of artists! On display will be works by the seven artists who donated their work for her Maple Uncommon sign. She has also planned for musical entertainment and always has wonderful food and drinks. This is a great opportunity for JRAC members to socialize with their fellow artists. We don’t have that many opportunities to get together. So next Sunday, August 6th, between 1:00 and 3:00, stop by Maple Uncommon in Columbus, KS. and say “Hi”.

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.
