Join us for Final Friday as we celebrate the opening of three new exhibitions!

Rosa Leff | Storydwelling

Rosa Leff creates papercuts by hand from a single sheet of paper using a knife.  Her cityscapes are based on photos she’s taken in her neighborhood and all over the world. Some of Lawrence’s most unassuming, most unlikely, most mundane-looking, places are where Black History was made.  As we buzz through the chaos of our days we forget to listen to the whispers of the bricks and porches.  The papercuts in this exhibit flood us with stories that were once everything to someone who called Lawrence home.  

INSIGHT Art Talk | June 1, 1 pm


Rachel Beer | Printmaking Resident | Vital Encounters

Rooted in the aching present, Vital Encounters extends an outstretched hand toward the small weedy spaces within our bodies and landscapes that are routinely deemed deviant, disposable, and unworthy of attention. This work combines the subtle language of drawing with the spontaneous nature of monotype printmaking as a means of amplifying the significance of these often-overlooked encounters.

INSIGHT Art Talk | June 18, 7 pm 


Niki Dionne | The People We Pass

Niki Dionne brings faceless representations of Black Women to life with a unique blend of illustration, oil pastel, and needle felting techniques. Her art delves into the intricate interplay between self-perceived identity and how it influences the self-perception of Black Women. Having grappled with her own identity, each creation bears a part of Niki, extending an open invitation to viewers to discover echoes of themselves within these relatable figures.
