EMERGING ARTIST introduced for May:
Alexis Balaun, Topeka, Kansas – multi-disciplinary
Stephen Smith Gallery was introduced to a very talented emerging artist studying art at Washburn University. Alexis Balaun is a multi-disciplinary artist in the Midwest. She has participated regionally and internationally in art exhibitions, performances and competitions. She attended Washburn University, receiving her BFA in general studio art this month (May, 2019). Her current body of work is influenced by her travels to Auschwitz-Birkenau, as well as, her investigation of providing care to the elderly in an assisted living facility as a Certified Nurse Aid. Alexis’ exhibition “Reflections of Life” addresses attention of the lasting impact of life and mementos left behind, regardless of one’s intent.
Joined by featured, exhibiting artists: Cathy Ledeker (watercolor/painting), Philip Hershberger (encaustic painting) and Stacey Utech (fused glass).
