Arts Council of Southeast Missouri
16B North Spanish Street

The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri will be hosting solo artist, Myles Calvert, for his exhibition Ottoman Opulence (and a few toasters). Calvert's work explores the relationships that develop between everyday objects and popular culture interferences. Following the ideals of Romanticism, emphasis is given to an individual experience of emotion. A moment of spontaneity allows for humor and a subtle twist to avoid an overwhelming glorification of the past through objects of the mundane.

Visual Arts Cooperative Gallery: New works will be on display by the Cooperative Artists. Exhibiting in the Window will be Randy Hays and Dave Carter.

Arte Cubano
Arte Cubano highlights a universally agreed-upon characteristic of Cuba’s art: an incredible diversity. Cuban art is so rich in large part because of its diverse cultural blend of African, European, and Latin/Caribbean influences. Add to these traditional roots the revolution of 1959, and Cuban art occupies a unique aesthetic place in the contemporary art world.

In conjunction with the Arte Cubano exhibition,  students and faculty from
Southeast Missouri State's Department of Music, led by Dr. Gabrielle Baffoni, assistant professor of single reeds, and Dr. Robert Fruehwald, professor of composition, will perform music by Cuban composers and music inspired by Cuba’s vibrant culture.

Gathered by the Sense by Felicia Cannon, Emily Denlinger, Gina Hunt, Ryan Paluczak, and
William H. Thielen

The Transition Spaces exhibition space is devoted to the work of regional artists. In Gathered by the Sense, the five artists probe the intersection of art and science, creating optical and aural phenomena that manifest in sensory experience for their audience. Pieces on display were driven by the strong ties between sensory stimulation and emotional landscape; senses are a gateway to intuitive knowledge. The works are visceral, challenging, experimental and experiential. In combination, it is their vision to build an atmosphere charged with feeling, offering works in a variety of media that center on corporeal experience. The show is born out of their collective rejoicings, failures, courage, despair and playfulness.

Plus - Make and Take: Under the Influence of Art from 4:00 - 8:00 pm. Participants will be using art to create a narrative to portray their concept, belief or feeling toward a topic they choose.
