MIXED MEDIAS

Topeka, Kansas – SEE TOPEKA - 13 PARKS, 13 ARTISTS

A tribute to thirteen of the one hundred nine public/private parks in Shawnee County will come to life as Stephen Smith Gallery exhibits the “original” works of art used as inspiration for the prints displayed around Topeka for the SEE TOPEKA park project.

Mary Gage of Lawrence, Kansas commissioned twelve additional local artists to create the works reminiscent of the iconic 1930’s-era WPA National Park posters in celebration of our city’s parks and green space, and to remind us how parks enrich our lives. The series has been made available to the public, as posters and postcards inspired by the originals at various Topeka locations since its unveiling earlier this summer.

For the first time, the thirteen artists’ original works will be made available for public viewing and purchase.  The “originals” will be on exhibit at Stephen Smith Gallery during the months of September and October for continued public viewing.

The stress slowly builds like a wave. 

At first, you do not notice the pressure. 

But once it reaches its peak, it overwhelms

   and shatters you into a million glistening pieces.

We make it easy to incorporate art into your everyday life through our digital presence.  Our “Art of the Week” series delivers an inspirational photo of a current work of art on exhibit straight to your inbox every Wednesday for a little way to pick you up in the middle of the week. Be sure to sign up for it HERE.

We know art is best experienced in person. Nothing can beat the emotional connection of seeing a piece of work in front of you. Adding art to your collection should not be based on photographs alone, and we invite you to visit Stephen Smith Gallery to connect more intimately with the striking work that you want to make yours.
