|And Our Forests Are Burning detail|
Two of my copper-frame weavings, "Afterlife" and "And Our Forests Are Burning," have been accepted at the Buttonwood Art Space's "2021 Visions of the Flint Hills" exhibition that opens Oct. 1.
The show runs from Oct. 1-Dec. 16, 2021. The First Friday reception is Oct. 1 from 5-9 p.m.
The 13th Annual Visions of the Flint Hills Art Benefit and Sale is a juried exhibition featuring artwork of the remarkable ecosystem that is the Flint Hills. The Flint Hills region contains the largest tallgrass prairie in North America. The beautiful scenes of the prairie inspire artists locally and nationally. All artworks in this exhibition will depict or be derived from the Flint Hills region of Kansas. Clive Fullagar was the juror of the entries for this exhibition.
Buttonwood Art Space is located at 3013 Main St., Kansas City, Mo.
Art sales benefit Friends of Konza Prairie (FOKP), a friends group of Kansas State University. FOKP promotes educational research and experiences in the Konza Prairie Biological Station, an area of the Flint Hills just south of Manhattan, Kansas. The 8,600 acre Konza Prairie and the surrounding Flint Hills region contain the largest remaining parcels of the Tallgrass Prairie that once covered 140 million acres in North America. Each purchase of beautiful artwork will benefit FOKP, with 50% of net sales going to the organization and the remaining 50% going directly to artists.
