We’re back! With the newly painted R. G. Endres Gallery at City Hall, the Prairie Village Arts Council sponsored the first public artist reception on March 11 from 6:00 to 7:00. The reception marked the end of a long period of necessary pandemic adjustments that deprived the senses in art viewing, with only half a story told in digital art. The Prairie Village Arts Council is beyond pleased to renew our tradition of in person exhibitions and receptions. The group of artists now showing at R. G. Endres Gallery waited patiently for this moment.
Three artists with local roots are represented in the beautifully curated current show. Katherine Bello’s paintings celebrate color in bold and uninhibited abstraction. Randall Bennett’s luminous landscapes highlight skill with pastels and paint, both a testament to his awards and membership in Artists for Conservation. Hasna Sal’s novel glass pieces tell a meaningful story, or combine color and organic form in a remarkable, distinguished design.
With its diversity in style and medium, this is a show you will want to experience in person through May 6, 2022.
