Hollister, MO—In its upcoming art exhibit, Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC) will be featuring the work of Jewel Mason in Proceed Without Certainty. The exhibit will run from December 1-30 at the SMAC Art Center gallery on historic Downing Street in Hollister. A reception will be held opening night Friday, December 1, from 6-9 p.m. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. Attendees may view the exhibit, tour the private studios and enjoy complimentary refreshments. The Vintage Paris Coffee kiosk will also be on site.
Mason describes her work as deeply personal, exploring psychological concepts through surrealism. From the small Missouri town of Crocker, she is currently studying both psychology and at both Missouri State University and Ozark Technical College in Springfield. “I became fascinated with surrealism after being diagnosed with depression,” she said. “And it became a way to conceptualize what was happening to me.”
In addition, each month during their exhibits, SMAC highlights one of the many local non-profit organizations that serves the area. This month SMAC is drawing attention to The Child Abuse Prevention and Elimination Foundation (CAPE),which assists child abuse survivors and their families in receiving therapeutic counseling by providing financial grants.
Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC), a 501C3 non-profit local center of creativity, art education, innovation, and community partnership, strives to improve the quality of life in southern Missouri by connecting individuals with the arts, for the benefit of all.
