THU MAY 6 – KIT MIRACLE EXHIBIT OPENS AT CULTURAL CENTER – Jasper Community Arts is hosting the work of local artist and former director of Jasper Community Arts Kit Miracle, opening May 6 and continuing through June 25 at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center in Jasper. Miracle says “Most people think I’m a painter, but I’m much more than that. I’m a storyteller. I don’t use words to tell my stories. My tools are paint and canvas and paper. I use them to convey my stories with a depth that words cannot reach.”  The two intimate series of work, Intimate Spaces: Beach Series and Intimate Spaces: Break Bread Series are Miracle’s observations of people in their natural habitat. The galleries at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center, located at 100 3rd Avenue, Suite A in Jasper, are open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.

THU MAY 6 – BRETT ANDERSON EXHIBIT OPENS AT CULTURAL CENTER – Jasper Community Arts is hosting the work of Evansville artist Brett Anderson, opening May 6 and continuing through June 25, at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center in Jasper. Anderson says, “Like many others I’m striving to anchor myself within the cacophony of popular American culture. As much as I’m addicted to 21st century conveniences, I have a curmudgeon’s distrust for touch-screen technologies, the 24-hour news cycle, and throwaway consumerism. I live with a superabundance of leisure activities, entertainment options, and empty calories when compared to most generations of human beings that have come before me. I question if any of these gifts make me a more fortunate person.” The galleries at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center, located at 100 3rd Avenue, Suite A in Jasper, are open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday. School groups, clubs, and students are welcome. Free admission, donations appreciated.
