"Pasture Survey: Kansas"
by Michael Pointer  |  Main Gallery

Michael Pointer is a fourth generation artist. After receiving his first camera at age nine, he began formal art training at the Wichita Art Association and the Wichita Art Museum. The Kansas prairie has imprinted a deep regard for wide skies and soft grass hills on Michael. In this new exhibition, he created monotype gelatin silver prints with that sunshine blowing through his head.

“Unfolding"
by Kelly Johnson  |  Balcony Gallery

Kelly Johnson is a watercolor painter who explores the forms of the natural world with an approach of curiosity and wonder. Her work focuses on florals and space themes, delving into the vastness that each has to offer and rendering them in a mix of abstraction and realism. Through her work, she aims to capture the ephemeral beauty of nature and to find meaning and solace in the rhythms of birth, death and rebirth.

“Domestic Morning”
by Jack Wilson  |  Main Hall Gallery

Jack Wilson began creating art at an early age with his mother as his primary collector since kindergarten. Wilson was accepted into Wichita State University and earned a Bachelor of Fine Art in drawing and painting, and then a Masters of Fine Art in printmaking. Wilson's process of creating art has remained the same for the past 40 years. He begins his work with no particular idea in mind. He starts by making a mark and then responds to it, leaving evidence of time spent and thoughts streamed.
