Speaking of the Arts

Each month the Missouri Arts Council features four artists on its website from a variety of arts genres, and on this week's show Diana Moxon checks in with the September artists: painter Joshua Newth from Cape Girardeau whose art tells the story of the ubiquity of man's litter and environmental impact; Kansas City based wearable art jeweler and sculptor, Clarissa Knighten, whose first sale happened in an elevator and who navigated her own clinical depression and bulimia through her creativity; artist Teri Moore in Augusta whose layered works seek an emotional response from her viewers; and poet Daniel Biegelson in Liberty whose first collection of poems titled 'of being neighbors' has just been published in which he aims to capture the music of thought. You can see the works of this week's guests on their websites: https://jnewthimages.weebly.com/; https://www.rissasartisticdesign.com/; https://teri.pb.online/; https://danielbiegelson.com/. Thanks, as always, to guitarist Yasmin Williams (http://www.yasminwilliamsmusic.com/) for the show's opening and closing music entitled, 'Restless Heart'.

What is Speaking of the Arts?

Speaking of the Arts is mid-Missouri's only weekly arts show. The show is hosted by Diana Moxon, who chats with actors, directors, authors, musicians, festival directors, event organizers, arts curators, and artists about the events they are involved in and also about their own works and their influences. Whilst the show focuses mainly on the mid-Missouri arts scene, Diana's guests have included international composers, conductors, authors as well as artists, musicians, and performers from around Missouri.
