The Stauth Memorial Museum is hosting the Western Kansas Art "Hang-In" 2018 on display from June 3, through June 24.
This exhibit is designed to give the many talented artists in Western Kansas a showcase to exhibit their work.
Amateur and professional participants have displayed paintings, sculpture, photography, drawings and more.
Four Dodge City residents have art on display in this exhibit.
Derek Bower is displaying three drawings; Downtown Dodge City," "Torino Pro Street" and "69 Cararo."
Jon K. Cronin has a wood carving entitled "Natural Wood Bowl with Turquoise", a sculpture called "Nature Sculpture" and a painting called "Light in the Forest."
Bobby Florez is displaying three drawings; "Thunder Brothers", Double Eagle", and "Spirit King."
Sarah M. Schaeffer has two mixed media pieces entitled "Hajib" and "William" on exhibit.
This is not a juried (judged) art exhibit, but just a fun way to showcase the many talented people in western Kansas with 41 pieces of art from 15 Artists from eight western Kansas cities, and eight different counties having their work on display in this exhibit.
This exhibit will display pieces of art such as Kansas scenery in photographs and paintings, drawings and paintings of animals, cars and cowboys, some with a nature theme, paintings of realism, intricate paintings of birds that took hours to create each feather, glass work, wood carvings and so much more.
The exhibit will close with an Artist’s Reception at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 24, for all of the artists who participated in the exhibition and for anyone who might want to meet them.
A People’s Choice Award certificate will be give to the artwork which received the most votes from museum visitors during the exhibition.
Refreshments will be served and we wish to extend an invitation to everyone to come meet the artists and share in the appreciation of the arts and the very talented artists in western Kansas.
