Friday I took pictures of the “Hey, Kansas City” art show at Paper Birch Landing. I think I got the whole exhibit here, but please forgive me if I missed one or two. Cell phone camera shots, so sorry for the quality. The show runs until the end of the month. Go to my previous post for more information on that. Of course, all these images are copyrighted by the artists who created them. I think just about everything here’s for sale. So, contact the gallery if you’re interested in purchasing.
Tonight I’ll be attending the opening night reception at Paper Birch Landing. The night opens the “Hey, Kansas City” show that I helped judge last month. The reception is from 6 to 10pm and there will be wine, art, food, music and poetry. The show runs all month. I’ll also be at the “Artists Speak” event next Thursday (August 18th) from 6 to 8pm.
The gallery is at 3740 Broadway Suite 300, Kansas City, MO 64111. It’s south of the Uptown Theater behind Woody’s. Normal business hours are Mon-Sat, 10am-5pm.
