Artists deliver work to Fair


Deanna Pospisil, of Sedalia, delivers her artwork titled “Larry” to the Missouri State Fair Fine Arts Building Saturday. Accepting the work is MSF Fine Arts Assistant Superintendent Janice Hargrave. Pospisil said the piece, a charcoal and graphite drawing, was of her late uncle, Larry Davenport; it will be judged and shown in the Open Amateur Division at the Fair Aug. 13-13. “I’ve always had good luck in the amateur division,” Pospisil said. “So, I’ll stick with it.”

Kimerle and his wife JoAnn Kimerle drove up to deliver two of his avian carvings that will be entered in the Open Professional Division in the Fine Arts Building for the Fair. Kimerle said it took him approximately 500 hours to carve the cherry wood eagle. After carving the raptor’s feathers, he then took a wood burner and gently sculpted additional detail.
