SMAC will host Local Artist, Jessica Lowe
Hollister, MO—In its upcoming art exhibit, Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC) will be featuring the work of Jessica Lowe in You’re Too Emotional? The exhibit will run from February 2-24 at the SMAC Art Center gallery on historic Downing Street in Hollister. An opening night reception will be held Friday, February 2, 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.
“I create from a place of emotion,” Jessica Lowe explained. “The creativity helps me process what I am feeling.” Her work in the show will encompass a variety of genres—oil, acrylic, watercolor, ceramic and needle felting. She employs the use of allegory to communicate the emotions of each piece. Lowe uses allegory in her art to provoke thought and reflection.
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 House of Hope, which offers services to the homeless in the Branson area, including a warming center for freezing nights. They connect their clients to resources so they can make positive changes that will move their lives forward.
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.
