West Plains Council on the Arts invites everyone to view a unique collection of photographs from artist Kelli Albin. The exhibit is on display in the Gallery at the West Plains Civic Center during normal business hours. Organizers hope the community will take advantage of this opportunity to view this black-and-white collection of hands at work and play.
The City of Cape Girardeau's first public art exhibit will open on Friday, April 4 and will consist of seven substantial pieces to be placed along the Broadway Corridor in downtown Cape Girardeau for a year, culminating in early April 2015. The seven artists are: Andy Arvantes, Mike Baur, Beth Nybeck, Dan Perry, Ben Pierce, Stephanie Sailer, and Chris Wubbena.
George Latshaw, widely regarded as a dean of American puppetry, stated: “Women have played such a major role in the renaissance of puppetry in the United States that is seems redundant to mention that they have been the equal of men from the pioneering days of the 1920s. Women have been contributors to all aspects of the field: as researchers; bibliographers; book authors; experimenters; playwrights; performers; producers; designers; directors; manufacturers; and educators. Puppetry in the United States was ‘liberated’ forty years before the women’s lib surfaced as a national movement.”
Sixteen amazing women are featured in an exhibit which covers all of the careers Mr. Latshaw mentions. A unique program featuring inspirational women in puppetry has been put together for groups such as Red Hat Ladies, church guilds, sororities, business, civic groups, and bus tours.
The Puppetry Arts Institute is offering this program with a special Vivilor box lunch for $20 per person. We can accommodate 40 people. Tours of exhibit without the box lunch are available at reduced rate.

Artist Bernard Perlin designed some of the most iconic American propaganda posters of World War II. As an artist-correspondent for LIFE and FORTUNE magazines, he sketched major military personnel and noted political figures. He accompanied commando missions into Nazi-occupied Greece, recorded the preparations for the final air war on Japan, and was aboard the USS MISSOURI for the formal Japanese surrender.
Upon his return to the United States, Perlin became a noted painter, with works now in the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian, and other major institutions. His illustrations appeared in popular magazines through the 1960s. Perlin continued to paint until his death in January 2014 at the age of 95.
Bernard Perlin: An Artist Goes to War is the first retrospective of Perlin's incredible work as a war artist. Join us for an exhibit of his work at the Kirksville Art Center November 7, 2014-January 3, 2015.

The exhibit concerns the resolution of a dispute over land ownership for the Osage tribe who once lived in Missouri, but were moved to Kansas, and then to a reservation in Oklahoma. The federal government allotted what had been tribally owned reservation land to the original 2,229 individual Osage tribeal members. This was the result of the Osage Allotment Act passed by the U.S. Congress in 1906; it also gave the tribe the mineral rights to the reservation's lands.
More than 1,300 photographs are showcased in this exhibition, featuring the original allottees of the Osage Tribe. Individuals, families and friends are presented as a proud nation steeped in tradition. Presented in the Saint Louis University Museum of Art.
The exhibit is organized by the Osage Tribal Museum, established in 1938; it is the oldest tribally-owned museum in the U.S. The museum is located on the Osage Nation Reservation in Pawhuska, Oklahoma.
