A new exhibition opens for Final Friday at Mark Arts. It’s called En Route: Paintings by Kirsten Shannon.
The free public reception begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, January 25, 2019. The exhibition will remain up through March 16. Admission is free, and the gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
“This first solo show in Mark Arts’ Wiedemann Gallery features extraordinary new work by local artist Kirsten Shannon. Kirsten is an Oregon native who has called Wichita home since 2006.
Her work purveys hopefulness as characterized by loose layering, freewheeling marks, vibrant colors and the idea that a stroke of paint takes on a self all its own. She paints with ability and exemption, and the viewer is sure to find the raw joy that is palpable in her work.”More Free and Cheap Things to Do this Week
