Sarah Dresser from the city’s Office of Cultural Affairs offers a monthly snapshot of what gallery exhibits to check out around town.
Orr Street Studios
Remnants: A One Read Art Exhibit is on display at Orr Street Studios through Sept. 26. Reception, artist awards, and special program will take place on Sept. 15, 6:30-8pm.
If the world were changed by sudden catastrophe – no electricity, medicine, Internet, transportation – what would you miss most? Inspired by this year’s One Read selection, mid-Missouri artists were invited to contribute works that explore the objects or relationships in our connected, complex and electrified world we’d yearn for most if they were lost to us.
“No more diving into pools of chlorinated water lit green from below. No more ball games played out under floodlights. No more porch lights with moths fluttering on summer nights. No more trains running under the surface of cities on the dazzling power of the electric third rail. No more cities.” ~ Emily St. John Mandel, “Station Eleven”
Montminy Art Gallery
The Missouri Watercolor Society Members Only Exhibit opens Sept. 10 at the Montminy Art Gallery at Boone County Museum & Galleries in Nifong Park. Exhibit on display through Nov. 1.
