SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Springfield Regional Arts Council (SRAC) presents an exhibition featuring the works of three visual art member organizations: Visual Artist Alliance of Springfield, Studio 55 and Springfield Plein Air. Paint Springfield x3 will be held at The Creamery Arts Center beginning on First Friday Art Walk, Friday, December 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. through Tuesday, December 27, 2011.
These three groups of artists come together each year for one exhibition at The Creamery. Studio 55 is an association of artists and patrons dedicated to making opportunities for adults over the age of 55. The Visual Artist Alliance of Springfield began in 1988 as a group of artists dedicated to advancing visual art in theSpringfield area. Springfield Plein Air is an outdoor painting group of local artists at all levels and talents.
With this exhibit, SRAC wants to recognize the talents of these artists by offering this joint show featuring various painting styles. “This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with the network of local artists,” said Stephanie Cramer, Director of Programs and Exhibitions, “and to showcase the work created within each distinct affiliation.”
The Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, provides support for Paint Springfield x3.
