SMAC will host photography exhibit 'Moved by Maui'

In its upcoming art exhibit, Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC) will be featuring the work of artist and photographer Cameron Heilig in “Moved by Maui.” The exhibit will run from June 7-29 at the SMAC Art Center gallery on historic Downing Street in Hollister. An opening night reception will be held Friday, June 7, from 6-9 p.m. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. Attendees may view the exhibit, tour the private studios and enjoy complimentary refreshments. The Vintage Paris Coffee kiosk will also be on site.

“My concept for the show is to bring more attention and love to the island of Maui,” Heilig said. His work consists of stunning underwater photos of sea life creatures taken off the cost of Maui. Though a Missouri native, he was living and working in Maui little more than a year ago when fires destroyed much of Maui. He was displaced by the fires, so returned to Missouri, settling in Hollister. A portion of profits from the sales of his photographs will go back to Maui to help with the continued recovery efforts.

Each month during their exhibits, SMAC highlights one of the many local nonprofit organizations that serve the area. This month SMAC is drawing attention to Faith Community Health, a Christian faith-based charitable clinic offering income-based health services in Branson. Their services include medical, pediatrics, mental health and vision. For donations, information or scheduling contact:

Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit local center of creativity, art education, innovation and community partnership, strives to improve the quality of life in southern Missouri by connecting individuals with the arts, for the benefit of all.
