Plaza Art Show 2017
I have done the Plaza Art Fair every year since we moved to Kansas City in 1984. It is one of my favorite events!
The artist I discovered this year was Stan Piepenburg of Wisconsin. He uses the contrast of black, white, and various colored inks, to capture the feeling of spaciousness and serenity while illustrating the simplicity of our world. His ink work ranges from the detailed line drawings to the stark winter landscapes where the skies are formed using a combination of inks, creating multiple hues that all of us observe at different times. All the scenes on view are, in one way or another, very familiar to people in the Midwest.
