Exhibitions

The Kansas City Artists Coalition’s exhibitions explore the diversity of expression that shape contemporary culture, art, and ideas. KCAC is a space for innovative and experimental art, which does not readily lend itself to commercial venues. KCAC also aggressively supports and embraces local and regional artists’ work.

UNDERGROUND

mastro

TERESA MASTRO defines her work as geometric abstraction. It is a simple timeless design that stands the test of time. The finished designs are derived from many detailed sketches over which she uses many thin layers of acrylic to bring out the desired effect. No taping is used in the process. Even though the process is tedious, Mastro feels it is well worth the time and effort - she derives agreat satisfaction in developing the design. The process leading up to the final product puts some kind of order in this chaotic world with it's straight lines and angles.

Painter wolfe

DON'T LOOK DOWN Taylor Painter-Wolfe's work is made entirely of wool she felted and dyed by hand. Making all of her own materials is an important part of her artistic process because it allows her to have a hand in every aspect of creating art from start to finish. The unpredictability involved always yields unique and interesting results. Oftentimes holes, irregular edges and sizes, and interesting variations in color and texture occur. Painter-Wolfe will never get the same shape or color twice, making each piece of felt totally one of a kind. She is inspired by aerial photography, satellite images, and maps. From high above, the details of a place are stripped away leaving only an elegant design of intersecting, overlapping, shapes, colors, and lines.

youngbird

JILLIAN YOUNGBIRD grew up in a place where you "warsh your clothes and swim in the crick." Being of Native American decent, while growing up with the "people of the hills" formed an interesting narrative in her self-identity. Story-telling has always been an important part of both cultures. In her study of Ozarkian and Native lore, Youngbird has come to find common threads and intentions. Different versions of the same story. Regardless of whether it tells the whole truth or a romanticized caricature, folklore gives you a vibrant visual history. Using recycled items and found materials from her environment, she creates sculpture, installation, photographs and performances that investigates her place in the worlds between two interwoven cultures, through the study of history, folklore and communication.
