Gary St. Ivany’s Art to be shown at Ellis Library

The University of Missouri will be presenting a one man art show featuring the fine art paintings of Gary St. Ivany of Camdenton, Missouri. The show will be exhibited at the Bookmark Café’ in the Ellis Library on the campus of the University of Missouri in Columbia beginning on January 20 and ending on May 15, 2009.

Gary paints everyday in his studio overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks in Camdenton, Missouri.
His paintings are in numerous private, corporate and public collections and were featured in the
following magazines: Columbia Home and Life, August 2007, Kansas City Home and Garden and
St. Louis Homes and Lifestyles, September 2007, Lake Lifestyles, December 2007. The St. Louis
, April 27, 2008 featured the developing art community at the Lake of the Ozarks and
included Gary’s Art in the article. Gary is represented by the Sturdevant Gallery in Osage Beach,
Missouri and Dunklin Street Gallery in Jefferson City, Missouri.

Gary’s paintings are done primarily in oil and acrylic and he stretches his own canvases to fit the unique frames that he selects for his paintings. His style is flowing and varies from impressionistic to abstract, but always with strong design and a vibrant use of color. Gary’s subjects include landscapes, portraits, animals, and abstract designs.

Gary says, “I make my art for the pure pleasure, joy and beauty that art can bring. I want my paintings to evoke an emotion from the viewer.”

Please visit Gary’s website www.garystivany.com to view Gary’s Art.

Ellis Library Displays in December

Ellis Library is exhibiting several displays for the month of December. In the large wall case there is a display of photography by Paul Hagey, graduate student in magazine writing. Paul started doing 35mm black and white photography as a graduate student at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, when he took an introduction to photography class in 2003. Soon after, he began taking landscape photographs as part of long trips into Utah, New Mexico and eventually Mexico. A few years later he visited and photographed Kyoto, which became part of a landscape photography show at the MU Craft Studio titled Location, a photographic study of Japan and Mexico. The current set of photographs is part of a larger photographic portrait of Missouri.

The remaining displays are a celebration of winter themes, including an exploration of snow and snowflakes, animals in winter, the evolution of Santa Claus and staff picks for holiday reading. All of these show the range of materials available in the MU Libraries. We’re also grateful to Walter Wehtje, Curator of the Bird and Mammal Collection of the School of Natural Resources for the loan of several bird specimens.
