Upcoming Exhibition Includes Arthur Kraft Watercolor “Colorado on Paper: Watercolors, Prints, and Drawings from the Moffett Collection”

Upcoming exhibition at
The Albrecht-Kemper Museum
2818 Frederick Avenue
Saint Joseph, Missouri 64506

For over two decades Jim and Virginia Moffett have been collecting the art of Colorado. The Kansas City residents have always had a passion for art, but it was when they purchased a Birger Sandzen oil painting of the Rocky Mountains that they realized they were going to need more pieces for this Colorado collection they had started. Artists in Colorado did most of their visual experiences on paper as they attempted to capture the peaks, valley and gorgeous scenery that this state has to offer. Drawing made on site in sketchbooks, as well as portable watercolors may have been used to capture composition ideas for later paintings and editioned prints. The exhibition consists of ninety works on paper by forty-five different artists, including Xavier Barile, Mary Chenoweth, Lloyd Foltz, Arthur Kraft, Ila McAfee, and George Vander Sluis, to name a few.

Opening Reception open to the public at no charge will be held Friday, April 13th, 2012 from 4-7 pm. The exhibition runs through June 3, 2012.
