Breaking the Block

December 16, 2016 - March 2, 2017
The Community Gallery at Santa Fe Convention Center,
Santa Fe, NM United States

Susan Case

All artists face creative blocks in the studio. Artists’ studios contain unfinished artworks that were failed experiments, incomplete thoughts, stubborn subjects or technical fails. Participating artists were handed the challenge of breaking through those creative blocks and creating an entirely novel piece anew. Has the artist garnered new insight since that original failure? Will the art work be a new and improved version of itself? Or, will it change completely? How much of the original piece will be legible? “Breaking the Block” is an exhibit about second chances, fresh starts and the process of mining successes from failures. Photographs of original, unfinished works will be displayed next to the finished final pieces, giving viewers a chance to explore how each artist reached resolution. Participating artists include: Sande Anderson, Francisco Benitez, Susan Case, Christy Georg ('97 sculpture), Deeda Hull, Will Karp, Siddiq Khan, Jayne Levant, Mark Levin, Judy Naumburg, Thomas Osgood, Michael Sharber, Jane Shoenfeld, Romi Sloboda, Harriette Tsosie, Shawn Turung, Andrea Isabel Vargas, Ruth Weston, Darrell Wilks and Nolan Winkler.

Kansas City’s premier art photographer, E.G. Schempf ('72 photography) has an exhibition, E.G. Schempf - Pedestal at Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art. According to an article in KC Studio magazine, “E.G. has been photographing the evolution of the arts in KC since the 1970s,” Leedy said. “And, in fact, what we and others think of as the KC art scene is based largely on the images that he has taken.” The shots in the show were made while he was out documenting other artists’ work, Schempf says. “Some are of different galleries at night or when the lights are turned off, but most are incidental views of the world I work in.” Hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday

Building into Painting by Tim Steele

February 3 - March 17
Sla307 art space,
307 W. 30th St.
New York , NY 10001
+ Google Map

Sla307 is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of recently constructed paintings by Tim Steele ('79 painting) entitled Building into Painting. The exhibition will be on view until March 17. Since Steele's inaugural 1999 solo exhibition in New York City, he has been creating commercial and private installations locally and abroad as well as exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions. In Tim's words, " After decades of exploring a full spectrum of painting, I’ve come to understand that the act of building in some form is linked to my desire to create. I was raised in a family of skilled craftsmen, mechanics, and fabricators, and my painting process acknowledges this tradition of practical labor and functional application, recognizing it as an important element of self-expression." "For this reason, I’m most engaged when construction is either incorporated into the painting process or when I’m designing the environment in which the paintings are ultimately displayed. Working at the intersection of painting, collage, and relief sculpture, I don’t believe that the literal building of the pieces can be separated from the “loftier” endeavor of painting; rather, I believe that process is content."  Read more about the exhibit at Sla307

Wonderland Remains: Four Views

February 3 @ 6:00 pm - April 1 @ 5:00 pm
Leedy-Voulkos Art Center – Main Gallery,
2012 Baltimore Ave.
Kansas City, MO 64108 United States

Beatles Park, Walnut Ridge, Arkansas

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.
