CoMo Arts: events & shows

I always hate to discover that I missed out on an event, and I would be devastated if that to happen to you. 🙂 So here is a little round-up of Columbia’s upcoming art events and shows:

Make a point to swing by the MU campus, you have to check out the 18th Annual Women in the Arts gallery show. It goes until April 1st at the Craft Studio Gallery in Memorial Union, find hours on their website. Only a couple days left to visit this show, but it’s worth it!

Here is a chance to get involved in the community of music and art: If you’d like to volunteer at Roots N Blues N BBQ this year (in September), you should visit the Volunteer Fair on April 7th from 5:30 to 7:30 at ARTlandish Gallery. There are more details on Facebook.

Columbia Art League’s current show is their annual tribute to the True/False film festival, Based on a True Story. It runs until April 16th. Their next show is called Red and runs from April 19th to June 18th. The opening reception is on Thursday, April 21st. CAL always puts on a good show, so make sure you stop by.

PS: Gallery’s spring exhibit runs through April 30th. If you have yet to check out their new location, go visit and kill two birds with one stone. I saw the show and the pieces are amazing.

Natalie Hellmann

The George Caleb Bingham gallery on MU’s campus is hosting Natalie Hellmann’s thesis show from April 4th to 27th. The reception is on April 8th from 5 to 7 pm. Natalie will have her ceramic sculptures and drawings on display.

And one of my favorite recurring events, the Craft Studio’s Craft Sale will be held on May 5th, 10 am to 1 pm, the location is TBA. They hold a sale every semester as an opportunity for the students to sell their creations, and to raise money to help fund the next semester’s classes and events. For the first time ever, they are allowing a limited number of faculty and staff to sell at the sale, too. In fact, you might even find some of my products there!

Of course this isn’t a complete list, I just gathered what I could. If you know of any other events or shows – please leave them in the comments and I will add them to the list!
