"Echoes of the Ozarks 

A collaboration of Two artists" 

On June 14th come meet Dana Neuenschwander and Lura Faye by stepping into the world of these two Missouri native artists and experience the dappled light, velvety moss, and rustling leaves of the backwoods as your eyes wander through their works of art. Their collection of 2-D & 3-D works will provide the viewer with an understanding of the beautiful forests of Missouri and its abundant flora and fauna. Their art will transport the observer with an experience of the Ozark woodland landscape that both artists have grown up in. This collection of art seeks to preserve the heritage of the Ozarks through the eyes of these collaborative artists. This body of work is a visually and sensory rich experience for all viewers.

Dana is a painter and Lura is a sculptor who have decided to combine their passion for the forests of Missouri into a symbiotic collection. The body of work will include acrylic paintings, paper sculptures, and mixed media with unusually intense colors and lush textures. Through this collection the magic of the Ozarks is captured so the onlooker can reconnect with their childlike wonderment.

Lura Faye, (website) B.S.Ed., M.A. is an artist represented by Formed Gallery. Dana Neuenschwander (website) B.S.F.A., M.L.S.  is an artist represented by Formed Gallery and Fresh Gallery.
