If you appreciate art with vibrant colors, you might want to make a trip to the Joplin Public Library.
The works of area artist Brad Mace are now on display inside the facility. Post Art Library Director Jill Sullivan says Mace’s work is inspired by nature and the different places he’s traveled. Sullivan says one of Mace’s biggest influences is Claude Monet.
“This exhibit is called ‘Colorful Tapestries of the United States’ and he tends to paint landscapes and sometimes when you look at his paintings, they’re so vibrant and you’re taken in that you don’t even notice the people in the paintings,” says Jill Sullivan.
The collection will remain on display through the end of March. If you’d like to meet Mace in person, there will be an artist reception for him at the library, located at 1901 East 20th Street on February 8th.
