The University of Central Missouri Gallery of Art & Design is pleased to announce the opening of two exhibitions beginning May 30th and continuing through July 3rd 2019. In the Main Gallery, the Mid-Missouri Artists, a non-profit organization serving artists and those interested in art in Johnson, Lafayette, Henry, and Pettis counties, present their annual summer exhibition hosted by the Gallery of Art & Design. Members’ works in a variety of mediums including photography, watercolor, oil paint, glass, pastels and pencil are on display. The Outer Gallery features a selection of sculptures by the late J. C. Carter on loan from the Warrensburg Arts Commission. The 18 assembled metal sculptures were recently donated by the family of J. C. Carter to the Warrensburg Arts Commission. Carter, a life-long Warrensburg resident, created “found object” sculptures in his retirement years, transforming bike parts, garden tools, and pistons into birds, robots, and jazz musicians.  After this exhibition in the UCM Gallery of Art & Design, Carter’s sculptures will begin to be placed on display in city buildings and parks for the public to enjoy.
