b.a.l.m. Maps the Kemper:
Lines, Dots, and the Spaces In Between
4420 Warwick Boulevard  Kansas City, MO 64111
Friday, October 26th, 2012, 7-9 pm

The lawns of the Kemper Museum will be a glow-in-the-dark
experience led by Lawrence’s artist cooperative
b.a.l.m. (beauty, art and life movement).
Activity stations will revolve around the themes of
RefreshExploreMove.
Find your way to the Kemper Museum to help create an
open-air interactive environment!

We are always creating the map…routing and rerouting our existence with
our movements between resting points,forming beneficial connections
along the way. Streams of creativity and ways of thinking run fluidly parallel
to one another and occasionally converge to illuminate perspectives. In this
context, art makes our neural pathways visible and helps us navigate the
geography between spaces. Our grey cell matter and the dark matter of the
universe become illuminated. We are joining with artists in our network to
awaken the event guests to realize their cumulative role in creating the map
with an engaging experience with light on the lawn of the Kemper.

Maps can be defined as any network formed in nature or culture . At night it
appears as a series of basic phospho -geometric components of circles or
dots, lines & spaces between shapes.These structures, which represent
constellations, bio phosphorescent micellenia networks in the soil between
mushrooms which allow for forestation, cities viewed from space which form
a dimensional structure for life, gleaming waterways or neuro-electric currents
and pathways in our brain become conduits or established pathways that support
functional and desirable ways of life to be traveled and revisited, and can also be
solidified and altered. Memories and relationships are formed at each juncture
and while navigating the unknowns, the dark matter or spaces in between, which
causes the design of the map to be in flux.


BREEZEWAY STATION – REFRESH:

Under the breezeway, artist Katherine Marie O’Hara’s crocheted
monofilament forms have a gift each guest is invited to take from
the suspended glow-in-the-dark elements.This lit wearable object
provides a visual map of your journey between the various stations
creating atrace of your steps and interactions and memory of
your involvement.

Sip a natural soda, kickback and listen to global and experimental
music by the Owl People, around glowing elements/sculptures by
artist Yuri Zupancic.

SOUTH LAWN – MOVEMENT:

Luminescent  artist inside a clear sphere will interact with guests while
mapping the topographic space.

Fiber and performance artist Judah Wagner designed and produced a suit
that in various ways uses multiplecolors of light to map the body.

Event producers, and artists Shannon and Darin White constructed
a collaborative glowing spherical structures  by transforming existing
objects.Guests are encouraged to manipulate and interact with
constructions and artists around the sunken lawn , creating a changing
map piece with the moving points.

NORTH LAWN STATION – EXPLORING:

Artists, Darin and Shannon White 10′ cube frame suspended & connected colored
glow-in-the-dark strings, neon , and glow elements, creating open air sculpture
environment.

Lawrence Art Center
940 New Hampshire Street 5-9pm

From the organizer:

As the New Year begins with a fresh set of goals and we close the door on a year of triumphs
& troubles,artists are often challenged to carry this anticipation into their studio.  This exhibit
is a chance for the public to get a glimpse into “what’s coming” from Kansas artists and possibly
to learn about each artist’s creative process.It is also an opportunity for the artists to experience
their own unfinished works in a new/different environment. This exhibit speaks to the passion
and drive each artist has to create and will allow the viewer the opportunity to see what’s
informing the artist’s studio.

This exhibit will include works in progress, sketches, mock-ups, and resource materials. Some
of the artists will participate in the Lawrence Arts Center’s Art-in-the-Open project. These artists
will periodically work on their pieces during the run of the exhibit.

Participating Artists:

Molly Murphy, Stephen Johnson, Nicolette Ross, David Loewenstein, Karen Matheis, Louis Copt,
Angie Pickman, Jason Barr, Eric Dobbins, Jack Collins, Leslie Kay, Lisa Grossman, Jeremy Morris,
Shannon White, Darin White, Yuri Zupancic, Jennifer Jarnot, Steven Graber, Juniper Tangpuz,
Kenneth Kupfur, and Alicia Kelly

Jason Barrr: I CAN HAS JAIL

The Invisible Hand Gallery
801 1/2 Massachusetts Suite D 6-9pm

From the artist:

Jason Barr aka BARRR is a man of many words. These words are manifested into
pictures, paintings, & podcasts. His first solo show BARRR: I CAN HAS JAIL
reflects the insanity of a man in flux. BARRR shows the conviction & commitment
of the “busiest man in Lawrence!!!” I CAN HAS JAIL is the definitive look inside
the mind of BARRR. A manic collage of bravado, psychedelia, fatherhood, pop
culture, anxiety, religion, insecurity, sex, rock n’ roll, paranoia, hustling & ANGER!
Manic depression has never looked so good.


I CAN HAS JAIL flier image  ©2011 Jason Barrr

Just Like Heaven: New & Used Work by Jimmy Trotter
January 28 — February 19

Opening Reception: (Final) Friday, January 28. 6-10 pm

Wonderfair Gallery / Shop / Studio
803 1/2 Massachusetts St 6-10pm

From the organizer:

©2011 Jimmy Trotter

Exhibition Essay:

As children we hope for endless amounts of things that are less appealing once the
freedom to acquire them is ours. The crunching plunge through frosted corn to
find the prize is replaced by more deviant behavior and luxury wants.

James Trotter has turned the advertisement characters of his American childhood
into a language. His calligraphy of faded toys and pop iconography double as
documentation of his altars of collected collectible junk tucked in every corner of
his studio. Trotter’s psychedelic style showcases racism in commercialized
ethnicity,lascivious cartoons, and the general surrealism of what people choose to
push product.His landscapes are piled high with logos and useless fonts. Slogans
and imagery from his collection of rare funk 45s from the 1960-70’s weave in and
out of his drawings.

Seemingly unhindered by the burden of institutional political dialogue, James
Trotter’s landscapes are upsetting and delightful. His lines and layers are unhinged:
flowering with the fervor childhood sugar highs and flush with second hand desire.

FINAL FRIDAY @ The Pig – ODD SACCADE by Andrew Huffman
The Bourgeois Pig
6 E. 9th St. 5:30-9pm

From the organizer:


©2011 Andrew Huffman

The current work involves an exploratory process reliant on the investigation
of the multiple-confrontation of line, volume, color, space,movement, proximity,
intensity,geometry, pattern, architecture, mirroring, and positive space in balance
with the negative. Although the work coincides with these many formal
relationships, it transcends these surface concepts through a meditative and
intuitive act that at times is a serendi…pitous and meandering process reliant on
investigating, inventing,experimenting, experiencing, hunting material, and
mentally proceeding into another world from the soul (consciously or
subconsciously), free from one’s physical limitation. Color implements provoke a
resonating, exploding, imploding, buzzing, humming, ambient, or distant noise.
The visual orchestrations utilize geometric patterns that induce an impending
and seemingly infinite constellation. Color married with architectural and
mechanical linework plays in a perpetually fluxing environment. Some proximity
relationships of the picture plane may induce a saccade (Ophthalmology. The
series of small,jerky movements of the eyes when changing focus from one point
to another) ; meanwhile, other areas of the picture plane provoke a seemingly airy
and tranquil atmosphere. This notion of pace fluctuation parallels with music,
as when an instrument’s articulation speeds up or slows down. It is my hope that
these subtle visual relationships perpetuate a visual playground free from the
obligation of what is known and concrete; rather these relationships ask if
meanings may come and go as they please, always shifting slightly and evolving.

Lawrence Kansas Final Fridays

These are a few of the locations that we are aware of, various other
exhibitions will be taking place at other venues. Just look for the yellow
flags or via the web go to lawrence.com/finalfridays for soon to be posted
listing of many events and a map and also you can view
Final Fridays Lawrence on Facebook
or FFLawrence on Twitter.
Our website beautyartandlifemovement.org will also
to continue to have listings.

The Final Friday events continue to grow as the word spreads. We hope
that this will continue to be a fun and educational way for Lawrence to
see and interact with art and artists. We also hope that Lawrence will
help sustain this event by supporting the artists, the venues and the
organizations involved.

In addition to sustaining art in Lawrence please contact your local
representative with your support of continued funding for the arts in
Kansas. Go to http://www.arts.ks.gov to read a very important
announcement about proposed loss of major funding of the arts
in Kansas. We need your help to save the Arts from the proposed
cuts!

Loss of funding for the arts doesn’t just effect artists, it effects culture at
large, creative thinking and living in far reaching ways that may never be
fully understood.

The DWR Champagne Chair Contest™ Results 2008

February 5, 2008

Every year I think I will enter this contest after the first of the year.  It always comes at a time that just doesn’t work for my schedule.  This year I was determined to enter something.  I put together a piece from a design I had made a few years ago and then adjusted it.  It was not chosen of the top 50.  I am not one who likes to not win, however I am starting to learn that there is much to be learned in not winning.  Either way, in a couple of hours I produce a mini designed chair out of cork the gold champagne metal cap and the wiring – shown below.  Below that is a copy of The DWR Champagne Chair Contest™ Results 2008.  Click at the link at the bottom of the page to see the original article.

balm “destination” postcards & baker’s anniversary show

November 15, 2007

Show Opening Friday, Nov. 16th, 5-8 p.m.

Art Affair Gallery, 7th & High St, Baldwin, KS

BALM artists & Baker’s Anniversary Show

Beautiful pieces by area artists in all price ranges for gift giving.   Other featured artists include Karen Jacks, Vernon Brecha, Heather Smith Jones, Darin White, Jane Flanders,  Shannon White, D. S. Dunlap, Sam Wagner, Anh Sawyer…  Continue the conversation we began at the original “destination” original art postcard gathering with us.   Please ask questions, as artists love to talk about their artwork. 

View art postcards from other artists and exhibits online to understand the whimsical history and ideas behind “art as postcard”.  The concept celebrates personal voice, the beauty of handmade gifts, accessible artwork in matters of scale and economy, art as visual communication and thought provoking and what is more fun than the idea that one can theoretically or actually put a stamp on a gift and mail the original expression — no styrofoam peanuts, standing in long lines at the post office, reams of giftwrap, issue with wrong size or repeat gift — simple and thoughtful.   If you are truly inspired, then you can make your own art card as well and send or give yours to a friend.
