Jeff started painting when taking classes at KU and landscapes inspire him the most. His favorite works are hanging at home, but—like children—he says, it is hard to pick a favorite. “Abject” is defined as experience to the maximum degree. “I feel like we all have the connection now of shared experiences with the pandemic.” You can see his work at Third Space Coffee in Bonner Springs and on his website, jeffreysmithartist.com.
For over thirty years, Lorrie’s put abstract colored pencil and ink drawings on paper. With the whimsy of Miro, Kandinsky, and Chagall, she feels inspired by many experiences. She might sketch while watching a show about native America, or while listening to the music of Hamilton. There are two pieces in the Connections exhibition: “Saturn’s Rings” and “Pink Lassos” that are available right now. Her work can be found at lorrieeiglesart.com.
Sheila is a former transplant and oncology chemotherapy (cancer) nurse. To find more time for her passion, she decided to change positions at the hospital to marketing. With Friday’s off, she dove in and studied pastels. Her painting in this show is a piece done in oil. Sheila enjoys developing her artwork on-site. This painting shows a fishing family living on Ha Long Bay just outside of North Vietnam that exhibits exotic caves. Find her work at www.sheilajewell.com or call 816-304-4740 to set up a tour of her work.
