A sculptor of monsters, a mixed media artist, a watercolorist, and a photographer: Checking in with the Missouri Arts Council's featured July artists

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 July artists: Kendall Hart, a sculptor of monsters and fantastical creatures from Farmington, who played Frankenstein with his dinosaurs as a child; St. Charles-based mixed media artist and photographer Kim Bouldin-Jones whose art career started with some COVID 'Wear your Mask' postcards; watercolor painter Alicia Farris from Springfield whose degree in psychology helps her find a story in every face; and in Kansas City, photographer Kirk Decker whose passion for photography began when he was 12 years old and his glamorous aunt brought her Minolta to town. You can see the works of this week's guests on their websites: https://grimstonestudios.com/; https://www.hangingtime.org/; https://www.afarris.com/; https://www.kirkdecker.com/index. Thanks, as always, to guitarist Yasmin Williams (http://www.yasminwilliamsmusic.com/) for the show's opening and closing music entitled, 'Restless Heart'.
