“Explore + Paint” exhibit by brady scott
in our main gallery
June 7 - july 1

“Get out of your comfort zone. Get off the beaten path. Explore the edges of town and quietly contemplate the past. The heart of a city is in the alleyways and the forgotten old buildings. The places where nature has started to grow over, and the ghosts laugh or cry out softly. These are the spaces that inspire me. I want to hear their voices and paint their song.” – Brady Scott

“Outlands and negotiations” exhibit by Robert Bubp and Jennifer ray
coming soon to our main gallery. . .
July 5 - August 4

“Outlands & Negotiations” is an exhibition of recent work by Wichita artists Jennifer Ray and Robert Bubp. Ray’s photographs and materials from her “In Range” project is a photographic documentation of objects she has found at open shooting ranges in the U.S., where the shooters’ choices of targets often reveal a pleasure in destruction that is simultaneously understandable and disturbing. Bubp’s multi-media works from the “Las Calles Públicas” project investigate public areas in different cities via documentation of his own movements in relation to others’ actions in these spaces; in seeking human exchanges, his process interrogates his own privilege as a tourist and reveals tensions reflecting systems of spatial power that need constant exposure.

Ray’s and Bubp’s works in “Outlands & Negotiations” share interpretations of the use of public space and who it is “for.” In Ray’s case, this question concerns rural, “natural” places that are perceived to not belong to anyone, but which have been claimed and used by a specific group of people for a specific purpose. Bubp’s work investigates openly shared urban spaces that are heavily monitored and policed. The conversation these works offer in relation to each other refers to the nature of non-obviously “owned” interstitial, physical spaces, who gets to claim them, and how their uses can create a kind of friction against our expectations of what our own experiences in them should be.

Even Me: Book Reading and Art Display
June 28
6 - 8 p.m. 

We are proud to host local author Jennie Bourquin and illustrator W.H. Mackey for a reading and signing of their children’s book “Even Me”. We will continue featuring W.H. Mackey’s illustrations in our front Gallery until July 1st.

Even Me is a tale about a small and curious caterpillar named Novi. He goes on a journey after watching many animals traveling in the same direction. He finds out the One is telling him to travel to a boat, but he is not sure exactly why. His curiosity gets the best of him and he ends up hitchhiking with a no-nonsense elephant named Esperanza. Throughout the journey of surprises and wonder, he is learning to trust God and that he is significant no matter his size or what he does!
This beautifully illustrated story is a feast for the eyes as well as a lesson to feed the soul. It was written for ages 5-11, but all will enjoy this beautiful tale of hope and significance.

Open to the public   •   FREE admission
