Water: The Artist’s Essential Element @ Springfield Art Museum
Jul 30 – Oct 29 all-day

Water has been a continual source of fascination for artists throughout the ages. Not only do we have a primal connection to this life-giving substance, but water fascinates us with its beauty, power, and ability to constantly reshape the natural world. Artists have captured the subject using many different mediums; however it is the watercolor artist who combines the subject of water with the natural flowing property of the water medium itself. This exhibit will feature over twenty works from the Museum’s extensive collection of watermedia paintings with a focus on waterscapes. Featured artists will include J.M.W. Turner, Don Nice, Eliot O’Hara, Oliver Corbett and Anne MacDougall. This exhibition is the fifth in a series, focusing on various artists, styles and trends, pulled exclusively from the Springfield Art Museum’s outstanding collection of contemporary American aquamedia. This exhibit was organized by Cindy Quayle, Exhibitions Manager.

The museum’s hours are:

  • Sunday 1-5 p.m.
  • Monday Closed
  • Tuesday – Wednesday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Thursday: 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Wonder Rooms: Ozark Collections Exhibit @ Springfield Art Museum
Sep 16 2017 – Feb 25 2018 all-day

Modern day museums developed out of two apparently basic aspects of human nature – our curiosity and our desire to collect. Early collections were  arranged and contained within private homes in rooms referred to as cabinets. These collections usually included a wide range of objects from taxidermy to paintings and sculpture. As their popularity grew, these rooms were called wonder or curiosity cabinets, from the German wunderkammer.

Wonder Rooms examines the human desire to collect, with a specific focus on private collections in Southwest Missouri, in order to discover the underlying stories and driving impulses behind collecting.  The exhibit will present representative works from ten local collections, and will feature a wide range of media arranged in cabinets or ‘rooms,’ including ceramics, photography, outsider art, local art, furniture, prints and drawings.

The museum’s hours are:

  • Sunday 1-5 p.m.
  • Monday Closed
  • Tuesday – Wednesday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Thursday: 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • Friday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
