Three venues offer art exhibits and events during the August C-Street Stroll – LemonDrop, Gallery Art Market, and Drury Gallery on C-Street.

Gallery Art Market
New works by several artists are in.
A new and larger inventory of ‘FUNNY’ story prints by Story People.
Remember Red Skelton? We have a rare signed & numbered canvas edition of “Freddie” available. Make an offer, you might be surprised.
Attention Artists and Art Collectors: Stop in to see how you can get your works and collections listed and sold! Better than consignments.

Drury on C-Street
Continuing VSA Exhibit Local visual artist, Christa Carpenter, Willard, is featured during the August show. Christa is a 30-year-old woman living with Cerebal Palsy. According to Kay Osborne, Arts Administration Major coordinator and local contact for this exhibit, “Christa has developed a really unique method of painting. Her work is original, colorful and engaging.”

Miss Carpenter will be honored during the First Friday event. 10 additional professional artists from across the state who have disabilities will be exhibited as well.


Art-a-thon reveal

View the artwork completed in the July 13, 2012 LemonDrop Art-a-thon in which local artists gathered per hour pledges from community members to raise money for art supplies for local elementary school art teachers.  Participating artists then stayed up making art from 7pm to 7am.  The the patron who pledged the most money per hour to each artist receives the completed artwork after this exhibit.  In conjunction with the art-a-thon reveal, LemonDrop will also be hosting PechaKucha Night Vol. 7.

PechaKucha Night Vol. 7 will be on August 3, 2012 at LemonDrop starting at 8pm

Community members are invited to present on a topic of their choosing. This is for everyone – students, emerging professionals, and seasoned presenters. Presenting at PechaKucha Night is such a great way to brush up on your public speaking skills in a casual environment, learn something new about Springfield, and expand your network! Don’t know what PechaKucha is all about?

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, PechaKucha Night rests on a simple and concise presentation format that keeps ideas moving at a rapid pace. Presenters have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to present their material. That makes for 6 minutes and 40 seconds of edifying entertainment. Despite the stuffy “presentation” moniker, PechaKucha’s atmosphere is casual and lax. The idea is to come away from the event with a greater perspective and richer ideas, but most importantly, to enjoy oneself in the process.  This is a free event.   Beer and wine will be served, donations appreciated.

Contact Amanda Snelson at with your questions. This event is volunteer driven, founded by Klein Dytham Architecture, and hosted by LemonDrop.
