Good afternoon,

My name is Dr. Jenny Copeland, and I lead the Reconnect Eating Disorders treatment program at Ozark Center. This year we are hosting our second art show to raise awareness about disordered eating and body image concerns in the Four States area. It is a showcase designed to showcase the lived experiences of our community and bring more attention to this critical health concern.

Anyone from our local Four States community can participate, and we welcome all types of art including paintings, photography, sketches, sculptures, clay designs, creative art projects, and writing.

I am reaching out to see if you or artists you may know might be interested in taking part in this event. It is being hosted through the Joplin Public Library and the Post Art Library, opening on June 29, 2023 and remaining open through the month of July.

The Call for Submissions and associated forms are located here:

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Dr. Copeland
