Spiva Center for the Arts Joplin MO


October 17 – December 19, 2020

73rd Membership Show

Sponsored by Liberty Utilities

Joplin is bursting with high-quality visual art. The last few years the Joplin arts scene has witnessed art fests, First and Third Thursdays, new galleries, regional fairs, collaborations, murals and more. Our local artists are BUSY, but they still choose to present their best work for Spiva’s annual showcase of members’ work.

Member artists have provided pieces from all mediums, including ceramics, watercolor, wood, oils, metal, photography and mixed media. Pieces entered in the adult competitive categories are eligible for cash awards totaling $2,400, once again generously provided by Dr. John and Mrs. Barbara Windle. Awards are given for both 2-D and 3-D works.
