The Kansas City Stockyards Gallery is located in the beautiful historic Livestock Exchange Building of KC, MO.

“Spring is beautiful, and summer is perfect for vacations, but autumn brings a longing to get away from the unreal things of life, out into the forest at night with a campfire and the rustling leaves.”
– Margaret Elizabeth Sangster

The Kansas City Stockyards gallery’s prospectus of the “Warmth of Autumn” art exhibition stated:

“We are seeking artists to apply with work that explores “The Warmth of Autumn”. Autumn is the bittersweet end to the heat of summer as we brace for winter’s chill.  As we break out the blankets and get the firewood ready it’s important to look around and notice the things that keep us warm.  Bonfires and flannels, snuggling up with our family with steaming mugs of cocoa, watching the sunshine filter through a glorious canopy of oranges, yellows, and reds. Autumn is the time to soak up the impermanent beauty that’s around us, before our world becomes cold and dark.  We all seek warmth during the fall in a variety of ways, whether it’s camping in the crisp air next to a campfire, or snuggling up with your loved ones on the couch with hot drinks and scary movies.  We are inviting artists to share these moments of autumnal warmth with us through their art. Whether 2D or 3D, realistic or just a colorful expression of an idea, we want to warm the walls of our gallery as we make our way through this beautiful season. All mediums are accepted. Work should revolve around the ideas of warmth and the fall season.  Reception is free and open to the public. Artists are encouraged to attend.”

I was fortunate to have two framed drawings accepted in the show which runs from October 15 – November 12, 2021. Earlier my work was included in the gallery’s “Everything You Love” exhibit.

My two entries include “Claudia in Fall” (left) and “Pensive Fall” (right).
