In Recognition of a Grand Lady

Artist Clara Straight_0655

Clara Straight has lead a very remarkable life. We at the Kirksville Arts Association would like to honor Clara and support her artwork. We will be exhibiting her paintings/artwork in the gallery June 21st to August 30th, 2019.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 by Clara’s 100th birthday on August 28, 2019. We hope you will help us reach that goal. We will be hosting different fundraising events throughout the year and hope you will support this special campaign. In June 2019, in honor of Clara’s 100th birthday, the Kirksville Arts Association will have an exhibit of Clara’s private collection of her favorite works. 

Please download the brochure here for more information on how you can help.

North Missouri Fiber Artists

North Missouri Fiber Artists:

The purpose of this group is to explore the fiber arts and related topics. We seek to inspire, encourage, educate and share the joys of fiber arts with others. We provide a forum for showing work and getting meaningful feedback. The current interests of active members are broad including, sewing, cross stitch, dyeing, spinning, knitting, crochet and weaving. Exchange information and ideas. The group is open to anyone, at any stage of development in the fiber arts (from “want to learn” to expert) who is interested in participating in the Guild. We currently meet on the third Saturday of most month from 2-4 pm.
