Inspired by this year’s One Read selection, we invited Mid-Missouri artists to contribute works that explore the Midwestern landscape, rural communities, family houses or other scenes from this place we call home. View this exhibit September 1-24 at Orr Street Studios. The gallery is open Thursday-Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. There will be a reception on September 13 at 6:30 p.m.
"Bettyville," this year's One Read selection, is in part a portrait of an aging parent. As a complement to the book, the Columbia Public Library will display photographs from Anastasia Pottinger's Centenarian Series throughout September. This work explores the beauty of the aging body through portraits featuring subjects age 100 and older. Learn more about Pottinger and her work at www.roguestudios.photo.
