LOCATION: National Avenue Christian Church
1515 S. National Ave., Springfield, MO

Program by Jane Troup

We are excited about our next speaker, artist Jane Troup. Jane is a contemporary artist whose art can be viewed in museums, galleries, private collections and also purchased online. Her work is colorful, whimsical, surreal, and includes a blend of nature and imagination. To learn more about Jane, please visit her website here.

Here are a few photos of Jane's artwork:

Our speaker for our May 2024 meeting was master glass blower Terry Bloodworth.  What a career he has had!  The presentation was just as much about how he became a glass blower as it was about the art itself. It was a heartwarming and educational presentation. 

Here are some photos from the May meeting. Thank you Tracy Bruton for the photos.
