2017 – Over 90 local, regional and national artists participated in the 2017 event. Artists representing 8 states offered jewelry, painting, ceramics, wood, sculpture, glass, digital art, photography and more.

2016 – The 2016 Featured artist for our 9th Annual Summit Art Festival was Andrew Batcheller, a Kansas City native who has called Joplin his home for the last decade. Batcheller has a long history with Summit Art. In 2010, he had his first gallery exhibit at GOT Art Gallery: Home of Summit Art. Since that time he has shown in festivals and galleries around the metro. In 2014, he was selected as the “Best of Show’ winner in the 7th Annual Summit Art Festival. Andrew Batcheller classifies his work as “portraiture” using birds as analogies for the human condition. The emotional quality of his work evokes thoughtful contemplation of our own human drama. His paintings are a part of national and international collections.
