June 29, 2023

For a second year the Kirksville Arts Association is honoring area men and women, who have served in the military with a photography exhibit at the Sue Ross Arts Center, located at 215 South Franklin in Kirksville. The exhibit opened June 28th and will run through August 26th. The exhibit includes forty former military members from Adair, Macon, Schuyler, Sullivan and Putnam counties. The exhibit includes photographs of the veterans holding a photograph of when they were in the service. At the close of the show the photographs will be given to the participants. The exhibit was sponsored by the Bank of Kirksville and the Missouri Arts Council.

A closing reception will be held Thursday, August 24th from 5:30 to 7 pm and will include a presentation of five quilts by the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild. This is the second year the arts association and the quilt guild have collaborated on this event. The quilts will be on display at the arts center until the evening of the reception.

The Sue Ross Arts Center is open Monday through Friday 11 am to 4 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm. There is no charge to view the exhibit.

Any former military member who is interested in participating in a future exhibit by the Kirksville Arts Association should call 660 665 0500 or email kirksvilleart@gmail.com.
