Joplin Arts Fest

Steve Doerr of The Wooden Doerr turns pieces of wood into works of art.
To me, it’s a miracle how he does it. Check out the brilliant turquoise running through this piece of maple. It’s absolutely stunning!
The work of Andrew Batcheller, a Kansas City native living in Joplin, has an otherworldly feeling to it.
Sometimes photographs can look like paintings, and the work of Ron Mellott of Bloomington, Indiana, is an example of that. Here is a photo he took of some aspens in autumn in Colorado.
Now for Natalie Wiseman, a previous Joplin Arts Fest Best in Show winner.
Her bright, surreal still life paintings are whimsical and fun, like this one called Sink or Swim.
