In this annual exhibit you will see a variety of mediums created by over 40 local and regional artists, all competing for prizes and the opportunity to show their work in the Main Gallery.  This exhibit was juried by Dr. Stephen Gleissner, former curator of the Wichita Art Museum and current owner for Gleissner Appraisal. He has selected works that are both vibrant in color, technically executed, and diverse in content. Works range in mediums from the traditional oils and acrylics to works in glass, copper, and found objects with most work available for purchase.

Untitled from Within

Works by Courtney Kruger

juried 2

“Since conception of this series I resolved to explore the ambiguity and possible obscurities of the nondeclaritive by rejecting overt meaning within a piece of work.  When launching into this mode of critical thinking I produce from within whatever is being felt in the moment.” Courtney’s work provides her audience through an abstract journey using elements of Pen & Ink and Paint.
