June 26 – September 19, 2014

The theme was “FAMILY” for the next Quarterly Juried Exhibition at the VAB Gallery at Boehringer-Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.

The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art (AKMA) has developed the Business + Art = Inspired Workplaces program which was a collaboration between AKMA and local companies. The Museum will aide participating companies in opening galleries within their company walls that will showcase the works of regional artists while adding beauty and inspiration to companies throughout St. Joseph, Missouri.

This partnership is an innovative way for businesses, the museum and local artist to prosper in new ways. Businesses will receive community recognition for their involvement in the arts and allow them the opportunity to contribute a tax deductible write off to the AKMA nonprofit organization, if they choose to sell the art within the gallery. The museum gains a wider and more diverse audience through the community while keeping faith with their core mission. Regional artists will gain additional spaces to display their work and opportunities to gain recognition and sponsorship. These new relationships will help form an active community interaction that sponsors the arts within St. Joseph, and regional Northwest Missouri.

The AKMA has partnered with  Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BIVI) with the development of the VAB Gallery.  This rotating Art Gallery at BIVI’s Gene Field Rd./Woodbine location will offer opportunities to local artists quarterly, with a different them announced each quarter.   Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BIVI) and the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art (AKMA) invite Northwest Missouri artists 16 years of age and up to submit artwork to The VAB Gallery for the 3rd quarter’s exhibition.

With over 100 pieces submitted, the artwork has been judged and the featured artists and their works are listed below.  Thank you to everyone that submitted artwork.
