Beginning tomorrow, March 4, and running through April 23, the SouthWind Art Gallery in Topeka, Kansas, is hosting a brilliant exhibition of works from the American Plains Artists (APA).
Harnessing the majesty and beauty of the American Plains is a venture many artists have embarked on, and none more outstanding than the group of artists whose name is just that: the American Plains Artists (APA). Beginning March 4, the APA will present its 2016 “Signature Show” at SouthWind Art Gallery in Topeka, Kansas.
Founded in 1982, the APA began as a small group of artists who bonded through their shared love of art and desire to capture the vast region known as the American Plains. Via their webpage, the APA writes, “From these humble beginnings, the APA today has expanded into a nonprofit organization with a growing membership of both signature and associate members. The goals have remained the same, to educate the public through traditional and representational art works about the American Plains region including landscape, wildlife, peoples and way of life in historical or modern times.”
The 2016 “Signature Show” will feature the best of the APA, including — among many others — Jammey Huggins, Pam Bunch, J.I. McElroy, and Cecy Turner. The exhibition will have an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on March 4 where awards will be announced and sales of the works will begin.
