I Heart KC Art

That's right, there is great art in Kansas City. Let me start by saying that I am no stranger to the region. I grew up in Kansas (leaving off the "City" on purpose, for those sticklers for geography), and since leaving it behind for college 15 years ago, a lot has changed. For example, the suburbs have grown beyond belief, the downtown area is no longer a place you go to get shot, and you can eat excellent food that isn't BBQ. Although I don't know why you would do the latter. But more importantly to you, a reader of this blog and I assume an art lover, KC has a robust and continually growing art scene. I only got a taste during my recent visit, but figured there was more than enough to share.

Heart to Art: Lora Reynolds of Lora Reynolds Gallery (PART ONE)

Imagine my thrill as a seasoned New York art-goer thrust back into the unfamiliar Texas Hill Country this summer (I graduated from University of Texas at Austin but hadn't visited the city but once since then), going totally off a strong recommendation from Big Apple friends to visit Lora Reynolds Gallery. Imagine that joy when stumbling into a clean, well-lit white-box, with its raw concrete floor and huge windows, which just happened to be showing former Armory Show artist Susan Collis (So it goes, May 14-July 16, 2011).
