The Collector’s Room
February 12 - April 9
The Epsten Gallery is pleased to present The Collectors’ Room, an exhibition featuring a selection of contemporary art from Kansas City Collectors who are friends and patrons of the Epsten Gallery. Work by alumni Robert ParkeHarrison (’90 photo/video), Irma Starr (’71 ceramics), former longtime faculty Jim Sajovic and Thomas Hart Benton is included.
Themes of identity, multiculturalism, realism, fantasy, and art historical iconography emerge in a range of portraits, figurative compositions and mixed media works, including painting, printmaking, photography and video. Indicating a range of historical and contemporary social issues, the works also exemplify a diverse range of styles and tastes within this sampling of Kansas City private collections.
