Blackout October Art Walk


Over 60 local artists have joined together to “black out” Obelisk Home for the month of October. We asked artists to create works that are predominately black and dark hues but left the rest open for interpretation. For many of the participants, trading their bright colors for a tube of black paint has pushed their comfort zones and immersed them into a diverting challenge. From paintings and drawings, to encaustic, mixed media, printmaking, and photography, this group show is a diverse display of talent here in Southwest Missouri.
