Exhibits/Gallery

We are partnered with the West Plains Civic Center to host art exhibits on the mezzanine at their facility.  Called the Gallery at the Center, this is an ideal space, with a professional hanging system, to display the artwork of area artists.    We are so pleased for this opportunity to promote the arts!

Some of our exhibits are co-sponsored with Missouri State University-West Plains University/Community Programs department.

Anyone interested in more information about these exhibits or the potential for exhibiting should contact Administrator Paula Speraneo at 417-293-2325 or email info@westplainsarts.org.

This page will feature our exhibits, leading with the latest.    Check back often for news of upcoming works to be exhibited. Links are provided to the full descriptions of each exhibit.

A Meet the Artist Reception will be held at the Boys and Girls Club, 613 W. First Street in West Plains, on Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 4:30 to 6:30 PM, in conjunction with their “Open the Door to Art” exhibit during National Boys and Girls Club Week March 24-29. The community is invited to stop by the Club during this open house.

 

“We’re very glad to have this opportunity to recognize and encourage these young artists. We urge community members to take advantage of this chance to view the artwork and personally meet the artists,” WPCA President Paula Speraneo said.  “Club members, under the direction of Arts Coordinator Deidre Button, have some very interesting pieces to exhibit, and we definitely want to demonstrate that their efforts have value to us.”

For more information about this exhibit or the Boys and Girls Club, phone 417-204-CLUB or arts@bgcluwp.com.

The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club of the Greater West Plains Area and West Plains Council on the Arts.
