“KeepBox,” an exhibition to commemorate Salina artist, Peggy Medina, and her spirit of gathering/keeping/making opened at the Lincoln Art Center on January 8 and will run through March 12, 2021.
This exhibit features forty regional and out-of-state artists each contributing one piece to celebrate Medina’s practice of looking closely, treasuring the discarded, and meticulously re-creating. The works include painting, sculpture, textile, clay, assemblage, mixed media, and photography as well as three new works-in-progress by Peggy Medina (the showing of which were facilitated by Bill Medina and Lori Wright.)
“KeepBox” will have a closing reception to be held on Friday March 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
A “Viewing Bench,” which has been made possible by memorial donations, will be presented at this time to honor the memory of Anne Wilkerson. The viewing bench was designed and built by her nephew, Rob Medcraft, of Louisville, KY.
This exhibit is free and open to the public Tuesday-Friday, Noon-4:00, and Saturday 9:00 am to Noon at the Lincoln Art Center, 126 E. Lincoln Ave., Lincoln, Kansas 67455. For more information call the art center at 785-524-3241.
