We all know life in Joplin can be very interesting. For a small town there is always lots to do. And for those of you who crave a little culture in your life, join Spiva Art Center.
On Friday night, they had an awesome display of art involving horses called Equine Gestures. My favorite was the wooden sculptures by Rachel Wilson.
Rachel is a 1997 graduate of Webb City High School. She told me that in creating her sculptures, she finds pieces of wood, mostly hedge wood, that has certain shapes that lend itself to the horse sculpture. And Rachel does just that. As you look at the sculptures you believe that each piece of wood that makes the leg or the eyes was created for just that purpose. These sculptures are incredible.
So get off the couch this winter and check out some cool stuff.
