 Statement for the 4x4 Art Exhibit.  So named because it features an artist from each of the 4 states in our area;  Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and of course Missouri

 Today's artist was Emily Wood from Arkansas.  She paints mainly with Acrylics on wood panels.  I absolutely love the way she uses the grain of the wood panel to help tell the story and be part of the image itself.


Emily speaking.  She gave an excellent talk and the questions were great.

Two of my favorites in her exhibit.  The top picture is from her sound series and the bottom one is from her location series.  I just love the feelings each one exudes.  Truly amazing work to be seen. 

The 4x4 exhibit runs through March 15, 2015.  Be sure and take time to go by the Springfield Art Museum to see this fun exhibit.
