The show will open with a reception and opportunity to meet the artist on May 2, from 5-7PM. The show will also be open for viewing on May 3, 9, and 10, all from 5-7PM. And, the exhibit will be open on Sunday, May 11, from 12:30-2:00PM before a performance by the Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra at the Star Theater.
The show’s title is inspired by Ms. Self’s students who regularly ask her, “Ms. Self, are you magic?” to which she replies, “Yes – and so are you.” Ms. Self is a lifetime artist and, for the last fifteen years, an art teacher in the Ozarks. She is the daughter of a devoted architect and a school teacher and moved as a young child to Saudi Arabia. While exploring new lands, she experienced the rich complex patterns of the Middle East, the outrageous colors of African culture, and the spiritual depth of human existence.
“Ms. Self, Are You Magic?” will be held at the Ferguson Building, 2nd Floor, in downtown Willow Springs.
