The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri has opened the call for the 2016 “Art for the Health of It” exhibition at SoutheastHEALTH in Cape Girardeau, MO. Art for the Health of It provides a way to utilize art as a calming agent in a stress-laden environment, while demonstrating the health and healing benefits of artistic images and expression.

Juror: Linda Buis
Beloved regional artist, Linda Buis, presently resides on a farm nestled in the rolling hills of Perry County, Missouri. She was the 2011 recipient of the Arts Council’s prestigious Otto F. Dingeldein Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts and is a current member of the Visual Arts Cooperative based in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

As an artist, Linda’s oil paintings depict landscapes, bird life and nature’s vignettes in everyday scenes as they are today and as they were yesterday. Within the detailed blending of reality and the imaginary, the creations reflect an image of nature’s beauty.

In addition to her everyday studio work, Linda is actively involved in the family’s 
farm. She, along with her husband, Ed and son, Caleb, raise Mammoth Jackstock. Along with a love of art and her farm she is a passionate collector of rocks and fossils from her travels.

Her prior jurying experience includes shows in Illinois and Indiana, as well as the High School Congressional Juried Exhibit and the Visual Arts Cooperative.
