The Prairie Village Arts Council was pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Art of Photography show this month. All of the winning artists were pleased to hear of their recognition. One particularly heart warming story was shared by Emily Gould, who's entry, "So Done" was recognized in the portrait category. She shared that the picture was of her husband, who had posed for many of her shots, but that this picture was the last one he was willing to let her take. Sadly, he passed away shortly before our winners were announced. Emily shared that the recognition was a wonderful tribute for both her and him.

Also, We are happy to report that our alum, Ada Koch, concluded her July show in the Bunker Center to great success and we are proud of her support to the Kansas City Chapter of Mothers in Charge. Mothers in Charge supports families of victims of gun violence by providing trauma-informed crisis intervention and peer-to-peer comfort, care and support to family members. In cooperation with the Kansas City Police Department, they are notified when a homicide occurs and respond immediately. As police are securing the scene for proper investigation, they are there to support the family members impacted. We could not be more proud of Ada's efforts and encourage everyone to support the work of Mothers in Charge. For more information on their organization, click here.
