Welcome

  Our Mission:

To promote community participation and interest in the fine arts.

To serve all art groups in all forms.


Spring is on the Way!!!  Welcome to our  webpage!!! Please check back frequently to see what events we are sponsoring.  Be sure to scroll below the Calendar on the calendar page for more information on our events!

We would like to encourage anyone interested in the arts to come join us at our monthly meetings.  We meet every fourth Monday of the month at the Ferguson Building in Willow Springs at 5:00PM.

Our Fourth Annual Sponsorship Campaign has ended and was a great success!  But, please consider making a tax free donation to the arts council!

All arts council activities are made possible by the generous donations of our sponsors.  We encourage individuals, businesses, and other organizations to make a donation to the arts council to help ensure events like these continue in our area.  Sponsorship can be for specific projects such as the orchestra, art camp for kids, or other events.  100% of donations go to support Arts Council activities.  The WSAC is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax exempt.

Our fund raising goal for 2016 was $6,500.  And, we met the GOAL!!!  We are very grateful to the sponsors who have made a commitment to continue support of the arts in our area.

If you would like more information on the arts council, please visit our website at www.willowspringsartscouncil.org.  To donate, please send your check to the Willow Springs Arts Council, c/o Becky Cash, 979 Hwy HH, Willow Springs, MO  65703.

CALLING ALL ARTISTS

WSAC is always looking for artists who would like to exhibit at the Ferguson Building in Willow Springs.  Whether paintings, photography, pottery, fiber arts or other medias, please call Becky Cash at 417-962-0979 if you are interested.

We are very sad about the recent fire that damaged the Historic Star Theater!  This theater is a landmark and had been the site of many Arts Council sponsored events, including both the Community and Youth Orchestras.  Please check to see where upcoming events have been rescheduled.

The Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra will be in concert on Sunday, March 12th, at 3PM at the Grimes Auditorium in Willow Springs.  The concert is entitled “Celtic Memories” and will feature delightful selections on an Irish theme!  We are honoring two of our special sponsors by dedicating this concert to Landmark Bank of Willow Springs and Hal and Linda Carter.  Please look for more information on the concert on the calendar page.
