I'm fortunate to announce that I will be a part of the Visions of the Flint Hills exhibition at the Buttonwood Art Space in Kansas City, MO. This show will run from October 7th through November 25th and I will have two pieces in the exhibit. I'm incredibly excited to have the opportunity have my work from the Flint Hills of Kansas be represented in the show. There is an opening the evening of October 7th from 6-9, which I will be attending and I hope to see some of you there!
