“Local & State” by Ann Resnick from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, March 25.
Trained as a printmaker, Ann Resnick has engaged a broad range of materials and processes, from wood burning to digital signal processing, and uses that range to produce large-scale, thought-provoking, sui generis works. Resnick is also a cultural advocate, and dedicates a large portion of her time each year to activities that advance the arts as a whole.

An “Art for Lunch” presentation by the artist will be held Tuesday, March 29 from noon to 1 p.m. in the gallery. A light lunch will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests can also bring their lunch. This event is also free and reservations are not required. Please arrive early as seating is limited.

“The impulse to remember the passing of friends, relatives, and those whose lives might otherwise go unremarked is the foundation of much of my current work,” Resnick said. “Sometimes, I start with obituary pages from the Wichita Eagle and transform the paper through the use of colored pencils, spray paint and stencils. The pages are then burned; a pattern of vaguely floral, or nature-inspired shapes remain.”

On display through April 22. Both the reception and admission to the gallery are free and open to the public

February Final Friday

City Arts

CityArts will host the opening of four new exhibits from 6-8 p.m. on Final Friday, Feb. 26, that celebrate the work of artists in the Wichita area. The shows will be on display through March 19.

Main Gallery: “Trial By Fire,” blown glass by various artists

Trial By FireThis exhibition will celebrate the rich history of glass art throughout Kansas and will feature dozens of glass blowing artists of various levels and aesthetics. CityArts is home to the region’s only glass blowing studio that is open to the public and offers classes to all levels. Since the studio was built, CityArts has hosted hundreds of artists specializing in this exciting and complex art form. Featured artists include, in alphabetical order: Greg Anderson, Kim Anderson, Nikki Cribbs, Chad Droegemeier, Connie Dutton, Scott Garrelts, Ethan Hall, Rollin Karg, Robin Lies, Casey Socha, Kelly Taylor, Roger Ward and Mark Yembrick.

Boardroom Gallery: “Portraits,” works by Rachel Foster

PortraitsRachel Foster’s series of paintings represent a slice of everyday life. “They are members of my community and family, but they could be anybody,” Foster said. Foster likes how common experiences and desires bind humanity together. She is an instructor at Butler Community College and Wichita State University.

Main Hall Gallery: “Fluidity,”  works by Lyda Andrews

FluidityLyda Andrews, a California native, began painting in the abstract style in the late 1990’s. “I like to move with the fluidity of the paint using color, line and rhythm to convey my feelings and emotions,” Andrews said. She draws inspiration from music, memories and feelings from deep within herself. Andrews received her fine art degree from Wichita State University and is an active member in Gallery XII’s cooperative fine arts gallery.

Balcony Gallery: “Ellipses,” works by Amelia Schroeder

EllipsesEllipses, both organic and cellular, show the essence of life and nature at its most basic level. Wichita newcomer Amelia Schroeder chooses bold colors and implied movement to characterize her body of works. Schroeder says that nature is the best piece of art she has ever seen, and that her work evokes childhood memories of discovering water, wind and trees. “I am influenced and inspired by the patterns, luminosity, colors and shadows of our planet,” Schroeder said.

The Great Kansas Sea: a collaborative drawing project with Robyn O’Neil by Harvester Arts

Join us in welcoming February resident, Robyn O’Neil as she shares her collaborative drawing project, The Great Kansas Sea, with Harvester Arts.

This project is inspired by The Permian Sea which covered much of Kansas 250 million years ago. Harvester Arts and Robyn O’Neil are bringing it back in The Great Kansas Sea, a large-scale collaborative drawing. Imagined lands, the psychological effects of being underwater, and the meditative nature of ocean waves are all a part of the motivation behind this project. We also simply want to create a beautiful seascape utilizing the individual hands of hundreds of people. Any and all are welcome to participate.

Those interested in helping create the sea should simply draw or paint water. Waves. Ocean. Cover the entire page. Your water can be wild or calm. It can be cartoony or romantic. Just draw water the way you like to see it. No creatures or fish or people; just water. Use any kind of drawing paper, anything better than computer paper will be fine. Keep it under 18” x 24”. Most people are using 8” x 10” sheets. Using pencil, pen, ink, watercolor (anything black or grey – no color please), So we can give you proper credit, please write your name legibly on the back of the drawing with an arrow indicating which way is up.

Completed pieces should be dropped off at Harvester Arts at 215 N Washington on Monday 2/22 from 2-6 PM or Tuesday 2/23 from 2-6 PM. The opening of The Great Kansas Sea will be Friday, February 26th at Harvester Arts from 7-10pm.

Robyn was born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1977, and currently lives in Los Angeles, California. Her work was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant. O’Neil has had several traveling solo museum exhibitions in the United States, and has been included in numerous acclaimed group museum exhibitions both domestically and internationally. She also received a grant from the Irish Film Board for a film written and art directed by her entitled “WE, THE MASSES” which was conceived of at Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School. Local and regional collections include the Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita State University, Wichita, Kansas and The Kemper Museum, Kansas City, Missouri. Her work represented by Susan Inglett Gallery, New York City; Talley Dunn Gallery, Dallas; and Western Exhibitions, Chicago.
Harvester Arts launched in February of 2014 to provide the local community access to the working processes of professional, nationally and internationally recognized artists through programming of quarterly exhibitions and events. The mission of Harvester Arts is to provide a thoughtful platform for visual arts experimentation that engages the community through critical dialogue and the creation of new work. To accomplish this, we bring Resident Artists from across the country to Wichita four times per year for two weeks to create an installation or performance of new work. The Resident Artists act as catalysts to provide fresh ideas and be a sounding board for dialogue. We partner the Resident with local artists, student groups, and area creatives (referred to as Satellite Artists) to engage with each other’s ideas and processes. Once the Resident Artist has completed an exhibition, the Satellite Artists continue the conversation by creating new work in response.

Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Steckline GalleryThe Susan De Wit Fiber Group includes seven women, who collectively have nearly 500 years of life experience that have taught them something about the spiritual, holy, and venerated. They all bring their unique approach to the topic through fiber art. Theresa Harrison said her sense of holy is grounded in her travels. “No matter which culture, which continent, which biome, nature’s bounty touches deep into [the] soul” she said.

Paula Smith said that she feels natural fibers have a divine vibration connected within them. When working with and deciding what to make out of a certain fiber, she said she feels a divine dance between her energy and the subtle energy of the fiber. Pam Bjork takes intimate photographs of the Tengenan Balinese sacred Geringsing textile, which she said reflects the powers ascribed to the cloth: healing, protection and magical potency.

Connie Lenoard-Volkman believes that when using manmade fibers such as lutradur and Tyvek, “… there is a constant relationship between construction and destruction…in nature, and perhaps in the spirit.” Mary Sue Foster said the inspiration for her work in this show draws from special stories in the Bible that can be summed up with the phrase “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings.” Nancy Squire places significance in her spiritual side when working with fibers. Susan de Wit explores what it means to be more human. She seeks through meditation for the point when the meditator transcends and becomes a little more than he or she was moments ago.

“Cautionary Tales”3823e043-8b2e-410a-ba84-73437e990147

“I love a good story. Stories teach us, inspire us and give meaning to our lives. I have been shaped by books I have read and movies I have watched: influenced by cautionary tales as a child, molded by the characters that still run away with my imagination……My paintings and sculpture are exaggerations of ideas that repeat themselves in the stories and characters that influence and shape all of our lives.”

“The Box Project”
By: Erica Carbrey

Eric Carbrey is from Wichita and was drawn to art in the fall of 1991. A rivalry between brothers began by seeing who could better draw video game characters. Today, he creates geometric art that feels as if the shapes are growing into their current frozen positions. Carbrey strives to create complexity with simplicity and at the same time simplicity with complexity.

“I enjoy being challenged by my work. I experience great delight in the physical demands of painting, and the processes of creating,” said Carbrey, who crafts his paintings by playing with opposites. “its rhythm and rhyme, up and down, a flow in and out of itself. The union of calm and chaos create harmony”.

“It is my hope that these paintings construct a rich evocative visual experience. My work combines color and shape, with compositional structure and illusion of space formulating works that are both pleasing and challenging to the eye.”

Tuesday, November 3
Noon to 1 p.m.
An Art for Lunch question answer session with the artist will be held Tuesday November 3 from 12 to 1p.m. in the Steckline Fine Arts Gallery. A light lunch will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis. Guests can also bring their lunch. The event is free and open to the public.

The Steckline Gallery is located inside the De Mattias Fine Arts Center on the Newman campus, 3100 McCormick. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment. For more information, call 316-942-4291, ext. 2199.

"REMIX," Artwork by Kathleen Shanahan and Ranal Harrell YoungMain Gallery: “REMIX,” Artwork by Kathleen Shanahan and Ranal Harrell Young
According to Wikipedia; “A remix is a piece of media which has been altered from its original state by adding, removing, and/or changing pieces of the item……The only characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates and changes other materials to create something new.”

Kathleen Shanahan’s artwork has been exhibited all over the world. Her images combine elements and characters in unlikely contexts through juxtaposition and collaging. Her method of creating art allows viewers to come to their own conclusion about their meaning and back story. Ranal Harrell Young’s thought-provoking work is diverse and imaginative. His process of finding and manipulating materials add another level of meaning to his pieces.

"Overcoming Together," In Honor & Celebration of Ruthie SpriggsBoardroom Gallery: “Overcoming Together,” In Honor & Celebration of Ruthie Spriggs
CityArts is excited to partner once again with the Arc of Sedgqick County for the 3rd annual art show in honor and celebration of Ruthie Spriggs who for 30+ years taught and inspired children and adults of all abilities. Through her love of art she sparked their inner artists and taught them to express themselves through their work. Featuring work by those with developmental disabilities across the state of Kansas this multimedia show is one of CityArt’s favorite of the year.

"#stuffsyddraws," Drawings by Sydney PetersonMain Hall Gallery: “#stuffsyddraws,” Drawings by Sydney Peterson
Sydney Peterson is a 10-year-old artist who continues to impresses audiences with the maturity of her work. She has been drawing since the age of four and considers art to be one of her favorite past times. She also has a preferred subject matter. Perterson will take drawing dragons and animals over bowls of fruit and landscapes any day. The reason she draws is simple, “Making art makes me feel happy, calm and relaxed.” This young artist has an understanding of art that is pure and can inspire people of all ages.

Corrugated Cellulose: A Response to Wayne White

Our May Resident Artist Wayne White said his Wichita crew of assistants was “one of the best I’ve ever worked with, I wish I could take them with me everywhere.” Now, some of this amazing group of local artists have taken the experience of building cardboard puppets for the Riverfest’s Sundown Parade and are now hard at work creating something of their own. Using the materials and processes learned from Wayne, these artists are creating sculpture, animation, and cardboard environments in an exhibition titled Corrugated Cellulose.

Artists
Bernardo Trevizo Jr., Patrick Calvillo, Mike Miller, Meghan Miller, Michelle Calhoun, Alli Sutton, Emma Ehart, Richard William Kopp, Jon Ashton Rushing, Jordan Kirtley, Drew Davis, Jessica Wasson and Robyn D.S.
