Floor Samples

The walls of the first floor gallery at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts haven’t seen anything quite like this. It is doubtful viewers have either. A current exhibit, The Unorganized Territory, features primarily large-scale tapestry forms by Kansas City artist Garry Noland, who was awarded this solo show as a 2012 Bemis Regional Juried Exhibition winner.

Midwest Arts Midtown has curated an intriguing show with varying points of view. Cool Abstraction features two artists with very different mediums, Gary Day and Michael Tegland.  Day uses his computer animation skills and Tegland uses graphite renderings on panel to deconstruct our idea of abstraction.  Although these two artists use contrasting styles - seeing the juxtaposition of these works may induce the...

Photo Synthesis

As mentioned in a recent review of the OEAA Visual Arts Nominee Show at Hot Shops, there wasn’t a single photography exhibit, solo or otherwise, nominated for an award this year from the past period of eligibility, Sept. 30, 2011-Aug. 31, 2012.
