CALL FOR ART : FARM AND RURAL LIFE SHOW
For the month of August, we are going to step into the farm land that blankets our country. With most of Kansas and Missouri filled with farm land, we wanted to pay homage to the hardworking farmers and natural places in our country. I have heard many people and artists say, that going to the quiet of the country is a welcome escape or the place they feel most alive and free. For many it is nostalgic, bringing the viewer back to the area or farm that they grew up on. Spending time out in farm and rural areas brings us back to who we are – there is a calm quiet being a place where you can hear the wind, smell the clean air, listen to the birds, bugs and cows as they hum a melody of the land. And to just sit and reflect.
This show is a Juried Art Show. Our Juror is well known International Artist Anastacia Drake of Stroke of Red Studio. http://www.strokeofredstudio.com Anastacia is an internationally recognized fine art painter, unencumbered by formal instruction. Her recent work delves into the connectedness of the real and the abstract by creating a conversation between color and texture. She has exhibited and sold internationally. In addition, she has won several artist fellowships, residencies, and awards worldwide. She also has Happy Cow Paintings https://www.facebook.com/happycowpaintings/ Happy Cow Paintings is original farmhouse paintings and decor created by Kansas artist Anastacia Drake.

“Inspired By Diversity” October 2018
A visual art show celebrating the Beauty of Diversity in our world. Daily we encounter people that are diverse in many ways – physical, culture, dress, religion, ethnicity, beliefs and desires. This diversity inspires artists daily by links thru business, family and friendships. But being Inspired by diversity leads us further than that, artists can be inspired by the diversity of our environment – birds, plants, animals, buildings, volcanoes, snow, mountains, oceans, prairie, cities, farms, cars, food, ballet dancers, shades of moonlight and more. Diversity is all around us — it’s up to the viewer to appreciate its beauty.
This year we are dedicating a section of the gallery to LGBT inspired art.
Artists are welcomed to enter their creations that speak to the theme of “Inspired by Diversity”. All mediums and photography will be accepted. This show is open to all artists, from the budding to the seasoned professional.
The visitors to the show will judge best in show and the winning artist will receive artist representation from the gallery for the year of 2019.
Entry Deadline: September 4
October 1 thru 31
Opening Night: October 13
