The Other Side of the Street - Kansas City Gallery

The Other Side of the Street: Charlotte Street on Walnut Street
October 6, 2017 - January 6, 2018

For the past 20 years, Charlotte Street Foundation has provided resources for individual artists by building upon principles of supporting, challenging, and empowering artists of exceptional vision—all the while, cultivating an environment where artists and art can thrive. In addition to providing studio space for 30 artists (visual, performance, and writers), CSF also chooses several local artists each year for significant cash awards. Our exhibit features works in the Belger Collection that were made by former winners of this cash award. While the Belger Collection has a national range and features Renee Stout of Washington, DC, Jasper Johns of Sharon, CT, and William T. Wiley of California (among others), there have been acquisitions from Kansas City-based artists over the years.

Shalene Valenzuela - Kansas City Gallery

Shalene Valenzuela: Weights and Measures
September 1 - December 16, 2017

Shalene Valenzuela: Weights and Measures features ceramic sculptures with feminist imagery from the long-time Executive Director of the Clay Studio of Missoula in Montana. Valenzuela’s forms reference dress-makers mannequins, kitchen appliances, and tools of domestic work. Her imagery mines the same vein in high detail.

"The Belger Arts Center is amazing in its presence in Kansas City; not quite a museum, not a university gallery, not a commercial gallery. It is an entity in itself that defies definition. It is an incredible resource and contribution to the visual arts in Kansas City."

- Dr. Kathleen Desmond, REVIEW magazine, November 2004
