Art, music and lively conversation transformed the space into “Arti Gras” in the community room of Leawood City Hall, where I’ve taken yoga classes.
In the slideshow below are photographs from the opening night gala on Feb. 21, 2014. It was Leawood’s third Juried Art Show. The opening night art show featured a Mardi Gras theme in decor and food. The Dixieland Jazz Band “12th Street Revue” and magician Barry Nelson entertained the crowd. Another gallery featured children’s art. The Leawood Foundation presented the show, with the support of the Leawood Arts Council.
I went with my friend Lynn, a talented photographer. There were many great artworks in the show I didn’t include in the slide show, partly because of reflections on the glass, but you can see all of the artworks if you click on the link under the slideshow.
Next year, plan to to attend so you can enjoy the work in person. I’m thinking of entering some of my photographs for the 2015 show. Watch this space to see whether I follow through with my plan…Lynn will give me a nudge or three, as will Sharon, a photographer friend who was at the show, too. I hope they also enter!
