Lovely art

Lovely art

Love was in the air over at the Urban Art Gallery in Joplin on Sunday. In fact, “Love Is” was the name of this month’s art reception.

The juried show awarded prizes to first, second, and third place. The show was called “Love Is” because the featured art was supposed to depict what love is, be it through romance, family, or even a broken heart.

“I think expressing love through your art is what a lot of us artists do. We tell our stories. It’s not always good. Sometimes it’s broken heart,” said Urban Art Gallery’s Linda Teeter.

Thirteen artists submitted works for the show, and you can check them out at the Urban Art Gallery through the end of the month. Congrats to artist Diana Bray who took first place.
