June Artwalk at the Carthage Antiquarium

It was a beautiful evening at the Carthage Artwalk. Had fun catching up with local artists Randi Bachman, Martha Goldman, Lauren Robertson, Hiram Mesa, Justin Camerer, and Bess Lanyon. I did my collaborative art thing for the kids; red white and blue circles and patterns. Be sure to keep up with this venue. Here's more about it:

Carthage Antiquarium is a collaborative venue for local artists and makers on the historic Carthage, Missouri square. Follow Carthage Antiquarium on Facebook and Instagram to watch our progress from big idea to a planned official grand opening in September! We'll be hosting monthly events through the summer in conjunction with Carthage Historic Downtown Art Walk as we build the gallery, develop resources for exploring local history, stock our shop with local and handmade souvenirs, and set up our coffee roasters to bring you the best in pour over and cold brew. Keep in touch to not miss all the events and activities, and contact us here or at to get involved!

Patchwork World

Josie’s primary medium is collage material from National Geographic magazine. The rich colors and textures from all over the globe remind her that we are citizens of the world, and that it's crucial for an artist to travel and explore. The radial design and mandala forms represent meaningful symbols from countless cultures over countless centuries. The ones she creates with collage and acrylic are personally meaningful, but do not represent a particular cultural construct.
