The end of semester show is over, but we were lucky this year since the end of semester show for KCAI fell the week before First Friday, that means you all have time to hit up some great openings this month!!!
First on the hit list is the Winter Event/Shop/Market/Bonanza featuring handmade work by our very own Fiber faculty Kim Eichler-Messmer and Erika Lynn Hanson!!! Here you can buy some handmade goodies from both Kim and Erika and cross off some family and friends on your holiday shopping list!! The shop will be at 215 w. 19th Ter. KC, MO 64108 from 6-9pm.
The first exhibition in the new Charlotte Street Studio Residency Program Series; Observation/ Hypothesis/ Experiment: Studio as Laboratory, curated by PLUG Projects, is a group exhibition which explores the idea of the studio as a place to discover and explore, featuring many of the current Charlotte Street Studio residents including 2012 Fiber Alum, Katy McRoberts, Skye Livingston and Maegan Stracy. The show will be at the Paragraph Gallery, 23 East 12th Street KCMO 64105 from 6-9 this Friday. (Image: Jewel Basket detail by Madeline Gallucci.)
