NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY BKD, LLP

BKD’s Renovated Joplin Office to Feature Local, Regional Art

Firm seeks submissions from artists in a multicounty region

SPRINGFIELD, MO. – John Wanamaker, managing partner of the Springfield, Branson and Joplin offices of BKD, LLP, announces the firm’s intent to purchase and display works of art in its Joplin office, which is undergoing renovations expected to be complete this fall.

The firm has issued a call for artists to submit work in all media and styles for consideration. There are no restrictions with regard to size, theme or method, but only original works will be considered and may include limited edition etchings, engravings, photographs and other works on paper. Offset color prints do not qualify as originals, however, and will not be considered.

“This project is meant to help promote and showcase world-class art from a multicounty region in the footprint of BKD’s Joplin practice office,” Wanamaker said. “Our goal is to achieve a great cultural and community-oriented success—one that is inclusive, visionary and stunning.”

Artists from 14 counties in four states—Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma—are invited to submit portfolios if they have participated in at least one juried show or exhibited with at least one gallery.

BKD is working with Joshua LeMasters of Cherry’s Custom Framing & Art Gallery on the call for artists. All entrants will be given a fair review by the BKD Art Committee and will be contacted once the process is complete. Submissions are due by Wednesday, September 25, and the review process will be completed no later than December 1. Please contact Marci Bowling at mbowling@bkd.com with any questions.

“We hope to create a sophisticated and unique collection that vigorously supports regional art and is made up of work by regional artists,” said Troy Hill, partner in the firm’s Joplin office. “A gallery-quality collection is something our employees and customers can enjoy now and for years to come.”
