Maybe you have love for your city, country or world. Love can be shown in abstract forms in abstract colors. Perhaps you have felt the loss of someone or something that you loved. You may choose to show the love you have for your creator or for science. Maybe you have a lost love or you believe that we come from an infinite source of love. In life, perhaps there was a time when you did not feel love and you were searching for it. Some of us have profound love for our pets, for nature, for calm serenity. Love can make you on fire! Love can make you at peace. The ways that we love are limitless and we want to see your interpretations. Using a small format of 16×20 or smaller challenges the artist to show big ideas on a small format.

Beauty of Diversity

Beauty of Diversity

Paper Birch Landing Gallery @ 6pm to 10pm

To honor the Beauty of Diversity in Kansas City and across our amazing planet, along with celebrating the power of creative expression, Paper Birch Landing Gallery will hold "The Beauty of Diversity" Art Exhibition for the month of October.
This art show serves as an important reminder of how beautiful it is to be who we are. We hope to highlight art that shines the beauty of a persons soul, culture and community. We believe that diversity is one of the world's greatest assets. To realize the promise of diversity , we must ensure that everyone is included, respected and valued for their own individuality. We must move beyond tolerance to genuine acceptance and respect - and not just feel this way but act this way. To show what a vibrant community Kansas City is where we embrace our difference and celebrate individuality. Our cultural identity as Americans is shaped in the beauty of our diversity.
In a world that tries to pit human against human and tell us who is better, who is right, who is wrong - we as artists stand up to say that this world belongs to us all! Black and White, Asian and Native American, Gay and Straight, Woman and Man and Gender Fluid. We are all beautiful and we all have beautiful messages to be heard.

Black and White Juried Art Show

Black and White Juried Art Show

Paper Birch Landing Gallery @ 5pm to 9pm

We are excited to announce our 1st National Juried Art Show - Black and White, for the month of November at Paper Birch Landing Gallery.
We are privledged to have powerhouse artist, teacher and writer, Polly McCann of Interurban Art House, as our Juror for the Black and White Show. With her guidance, we look forward to a spectacular show.

Day after day, we bask in the beauty of color after color. Daily, our brains are bombarded with Bright Blues, Happy Yellows, Calming Greens, Royal Purples, Angry Reds, Shocking Oranges, and the list goes on....

Black and White is as simplistic, as it is primal, as it is complex. The use of these two extremes on the spectrum encourages us to focus on the composition and subject within the piece. By pulling out colors that resonate such as blue for water, yellow for sun, we show that sometimes simplicity is far more complex than using the full spectrum of color.

For this competition, artists are encouraged to submit their best art and photography using black, white and nuanced shades in between. This competition is open to all mediums. Artists outside of the Kansas City area, that are not able to drop off/pick up artwork is chosen for this show, will be responsible for shipping to the gallery and shipping cost upon return of work if it is not sold during the show.

Entries are open until October 5th. Top 20 pieces will be selected for this show. Artists selected will have an opening night reception on the 2cnd week of November. Show will run the month of November at Paper Birch Landing Gallery, at the new location at 405 East 19th Ave in North Kansas City. (Just a ten minute drive from downtown KCMO)

Where: 405 East 19th Street, North Kansas City, Missouri
