The Hutchinson Art Association, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1949 to promote the study and development of interest and education in the Fine Arts, and to promote and aid in the development of artists. To that end, the HAA will collect, preserve, document, interpret, research, and disseminate knowledge about both European and American Art of the 19th and 20th centuries, and facilitate the commercial activities of contemporary artists.
The 56th Annual Art Fair was a great success! Thank you to all of our volunteers for your hard work and to all the artists who participated. We hope to see you again next year at the 57th Art Fair!
In addition to many exhibitions by regional artists, the HAC sponsors an Annual HAC Artist Member Exhibit, Hutchinson High School Exhibit, and USD 308 6th Grade Exhibit.

"No Middle Ground"
by Tim Stone
ending July 8, 2018
opening Reception on June 15, 5-7 p.m.
Tim Stone’s work consists of spaces inspired by the ordinary and triggered by the mundane. He paints scenes or places where incidents in real life or fiction occur. His work questions what realism is, what fiction is, and depicts the spaces in which they converge. There is a constant tension between the ordinary and the superlative and between natural and artificial color. This occurrence is true in real life, so it is truthful in the scenes he paints. He is both investigating and celebrating his experience of liminal spaces.
With his newest series of work “Invented Landscapes,” he splices representational imagery with abstract mark-making to create new, intuitively designed landscapes. By collaging cut-outs of iconic and recognizable imagery, he is redefining, or “inventing” such imagery into a completely new space to be experienced by the viewer. The cut-out images he works with are never forced together, but attached with a harmonious logic. Similar colors and shapes existing between the images fuse together, changing the images original intention. These landscapes are now untethered, free to exist in their own fabricated reality.
Tim Stone graduated from Wichita State University in 2012 with a BFA in Painting. He was accepted to the New York Studio School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture in 2014 where he participated in a Drawing Marathon with Graham Nickson. This was an intensive, eight hour a day, two week course that focused on plastically depicting the human form and accurately mapping spacial dimension. In 2016 he was an instructor at Wichita State University teaching life drawing. He currently teaches drawing and painting classes at Mark Arts and Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS. He was chosen as one of fifty Wichita artists to be included in the book Wichita Artists In Their Studios by Sondra Langel and Larry Schwarm. His work can be seen locally at Emprise Bank, and online at timstone.me.
