Jos Sances | Or, The Whale

Lawrence Arts Center Gallery 940 New Hampshire St, Lawrence

Leon Richmond’s Theater of The Absurdo

Lawrence Arts Center Gallery 940 New Hampshire St, Lawrence

Using reclaimed vintage thrift store objects, this exhibition addresses a historical American visual analysis of who we were, who we are and what we mostly still want to be.

Lora Jost | Sound the Climate Alarm

Lawrence Arts Center Gallery 940 New Hampshire St, Lawrence

In Lora Jost's exhibit of drawings and mosaics, cardinals honk and chickadees sing razor wire. Death chases a prairie chicken with a blaring saxophone.

Lindy Chambers | Hidden From View

Lawrence Arts Center Gallery 940 New Hampshire St, Lawrence

Lindy Chambers’ work bridges realism and the abstract, the perfect foil for her subject matter. She represents trash monochromatically unimportant to the inhabitants of her work but still an integral part of the composition. It is inevitable that a world hidden from view would suffer from vast misconceptions. This exhibition of large paintings addresses life … [more]
