Meeting – October 9, 2014

MOSI gathered for their monthly meeting. The business part of the meeting happened uneventfully. Each member is encouraged to go to and open the MOSI tab at the top, to stay up-to-date on the changes proposed to the MOSI By-Laws. We will vote on this next meeting, November 13, 2014. Also use the web as a tool to read last month’s minutes and stay abreast of the events and photos published for MOSI members.

Members with work hanging in the Kirksville Arts Association’s (KAA) Wilderness Exhibit must pick up their work at KAA on Thursday, October 30, 2014, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The MOSI holiday party will be Thursday December 11, 2014.

This months presentation was by Amber Corbett about her fiber art processes.

She brought along her small cylindrical carder to show how she does it. As she rotates the carder, she blends the colors of her wool fibers.


The felt is a malleable, and can be shaped, stabbed, and bent to the artist’s whim.

She described a needle that she uses with barbs on it, inserting in and out of the felt helps shape the piece.

After the presentation the Artist of the Month was announced. This is Erma Auxter with a painting of a prickly pear cactus. Her painting appears in the KAA window for a month. Congratulations, Erma.




MOSI meets on the second Thursday of each month at the Kirksville Arts Association. “Of a Wild Nature,” an exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, features work of many MOSI members at the Kirksville Art Association. MOSI artists also have pieces displayed at James Edward Shelter Insurance on the north side of the Kirksville square, as well as at Jazzman’s, a coffee cafe inside Pickler Memorial Library at Truman State University.

After the monthly meeting many of the MOSI members . . . .

. . . . followed Ann Salviazul to the Dukum Inn where she lead an art lesson teaching us about stencil, collage, and shapes.
