Fianl Friday May 2015 - Phoenix Gallery Underground

Fianl Friday May 2015 - Phoenix Gallery Underground

Head downstairs to the new Phoenix Gallery Underground.

The Phoenix Gallery in Lawrence has a fantastic space below the main storefront on Mass Street. Come check out Jen's show, up through the end of June.

Brookside Art Annual 2015

Brookside Art Annual 2015

A fantastic weekend under the big tent.

FOr the first time ever, Jen isn't showing at Lawrence's Art in the Park. Every year, it and the Art Annual in Brookside fall on the same weekend and with Jen's deep ties to the Lawrence Art Guild, it was too hard not to be at Art in the Park - sometimes as the show's coordinator and always as an artist. But this year she took an opportunity to be part of one of the best art shows in the region and had a fantastic weekend. So glad to see so many KC friends, too!

Final Friday March 2015 - Five Bar

Final Friday March 2015 - Five Bar

Five Bar in Lawrence (next door to Ingredient at 8th & Mass) is a fantastic space. Come check out the show, up through the end of April.

Nick Wysong's Five Bar and Tables is not only one of the best places to spend an evening eating and drinking with friends, it's also an amazing space to show art. Hope you get a chance to see the show, up through the end of April 

KC First Friday - Nov 2014

KC First Friday - Nov 2014

Had a fantastic night at the last First Friday event of the year for the Wheat Photography gallery space.

The space is a phenomenal, and Jenny Wheat was so gracious with her time and the use of the space. Definitely check her amazing photography work at her site. We met a lot of great people, and hope to be back in KC with another showing in the area soon!
