Gillis Art Lab

1029 E 5th St, KCMO 64106

 



As the Historic Columbus Park neighborhood where we live and have our studio is becoming increasingly popular, we have decided to open our fabulous studio space to host guest artists in the newly formed Gillis Art Lab. Our vision is for it to be a welcoming and casual space for artists to test ideas and to show work outside of a formal gallery setting, and to demystify the creative process by allowing viewers to see work in progress. It is all a grand adventure!

Also open nearby on 3rd Friday:

Hanging the Laundry

with my beautiful tribe…

As always my goal is to make my artwork look effortless. To blend a simple concept and materials so seamlessly as to look like the outcome is inevitable. “Laundry Day” was no exception. However, you must know that building and erecting a huge clothesline, and hanging fabric printed photographs (in strong winds) in a downtown park was not without its challenges. Thankfully, I have the best tribe of talented, hard working artists that helped me make it happen. I am humbled that so many of them took time away from their own art practices to help me realize this piece. And a special shout out to the talented photographer Emily Evans Sloan for capturing the process and my beautiful people.

I am so, so thankful!
