Several artists--including some who are new to the event--already have reserved their spaces for the Second Annual August Art Night! Others who exhibited last year will be back, with new artwork!

Art will be for sale at the show, but we cannot take credit cards on the artists' behalf. Most purchases will be by checks or cash only, so come prepared!

IMAGE CREDITS: The World's Fairs poster is from the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. "Neelix," A.K.A. Tracy Majkol, took the art show photo at last year's August Art Night; it is used here with his permission. We also should note that there will be a display of Neelix's photography in this year's show! The illustration of a "Papa Minsky's" pizza is from Jim Nichols' "Foodspotting" blog. The blog also includes images of food offerings from several other Kansas City-area restaurants.
