Our first featured artist for May is Karla Breeding Trammell. Trammell is multi-talented. Her works range from two-dimensional paintings and drawings to jewelry design. Her paintings are exceedingly mesmerizing and exquisitely detailed. Her style in jewelry design ranges from simple and elegant to masterfully intricate and chic.
At long last, spring has sprung. Birds are singing, trees are budding and creativity is in bloom in historic Downtown Springfield with original art, live music, tastings, demonstrations and more in 19 participating Art Walk venues 6-10 p.m. April 3.
With the April Art Walk, we are offering more options for visitors. For those who want to start their Walk early, we recommend Early Bird Art Walk venues, which open their shows before 6 p.m. For those who come late to the Walk, or who want to keep the evening going, we recommend Night Owl Art Walk venues, which stay open after 10 p.m.
Our mission is to transform lives and enrich the community through the arts.
