Seeing Visions with Matthew Ballou

Taming the Tongue by Matthew Ballou.
The best way to experience art is to have the artist who created it present it you! Come for a guided tour of artist Matt Ballou's work and an informal talk about his approach to the creative process.

Matthew Ballou is an artist and writer living in Columbia, Mo., with his wife, Alison, and daughter, Miranda. He is an assistant teaching professor of painting and drawing in the Art Department at the University of Missouri, where he has taught since 2007. Recently his work has been seen in solo shows in Boston and Seattle, as well as in a two-person show in Louisville, Ky. His extensive article on the work of Odd Nerdrum was the cover feature in Image Journal's 2006 summer edition. Ballou has been a contributor to Neoteric Art in Chicago since 2009, and Neoteric will release a collection of his essays in October 2011. See his work at

A closing reception for Matt's show will be held during Artrageous Friday, 6-9 p.m. Oct. 7.
