Wonderland Remains: Four Views
February 3 @ 6:00 pm - April 1 @ 5:00 pm
Wonderland Remains presents the work of four photographic visionaries who are engaged in rendering the beauty and visual poetry of the far-reaching vestiges of America. Through their images we can also see the evidence that portends our place within this ever changing, human made environment.
It is no surprise to learn that these four photographers have their own historical connections. Alumni of the Kansas City Art Institute, Jeff Burk (’79 photography), Chuck Avery (’77 photography), Don McKenna (’78 photography) and Russell Phillips (’77 photography) attended the college in the late 1970s where their influences were shared. During our current time, where “analog meets digital,” each photographer has emerged true to his values. It is through their collective vision that the ultimate gift of photography is bestowed upon us, one that gives us pause while informing us in ways to see this wondrous world.
