Join the Lawrence Arts Center on September’s Final Friday to enjoy:

Ma an Tsabāl – Desde la Tierra – From the Earth | Osbaldo Gonzalez-Reyes

Osbaldo Gonzalez-Reyes is a self-proclaimed hobby ceramicist whose work has ties to Indigenous Mexican culture. Osbaldo utilizes forms, designs and subjects found in the Huasteca region of Mexico with clay he harvests from the Kansas land. He then fires in his traditionally hand-built kiln, thus connecting him to both of the lands that shape his identity.

  • Final Friday Reception: September 29 | 6-9 pm

Lonesome: Hank Williams’ 100th | Curated by Ben Ahlvers

Hank Williams’ music – rooted in country music and influenced by church hymns, folk and the blues – is bathed in personal fragility and torment. His words conjured images and spoke to issues that continue to influence music today. In the 70 years since his untimely death, Williams’ visage has etched itself into popular culture. The works in this exhibition explore the mythology of Hank Williams’ life and legacy.
