Paintings Accepted into “Flora” Art Show at Vanessa Lacy Gallery

I’m honored to have three of my paintings accepted into the “Flora” group art show at the Vanessa Lacy Gallery.  The gallery is located on the first floor of the Livestock Exchange Building, 1600 Genessee, Kansas City, MO (that’s in the west bottoms).  Enter the building in the center rear door.  The group opening is February 9th, 5-9pm with art, live music, and refreshments.  Normal gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday 10AM – 6PM and Saturday 10AM – 3PM.

My paintings are of prairie wild flowers.  They show the helter skelter mixture of wild flowers and grasses in native Missouri prairies.  Two paintings are of restored prairie wild flowers  done in plein air at the James A. Reed Wildlife Area and one is a painting of wild flowers in Missouri’s Prairie State Park.
