The Library opens a yearlong series of exhibits commemorating the 20th anniversary of the arts-nurturing Charlotte Street Foundation with the work of acclaimed painter and longtime Kansas City Art Institute instructor Warren Rosser.
Rosser, the William T. Kemper Distinguished Professor of Painting at the Kansas City Art Institute and chair of the Institute’s painting department for 28 years, was a Charlotte Street Award recipient in 2000. The exhibit features selections from various series he has created since then, demonstrating his interest in painting, construction, and printmaking. Each series carries on a conversation with each other, embedding Rosser’s deep interest in color and how color is manifested through different materials and processes.
The works of four former Charlotte Street award winners will be featured in the Library’s Genevieve Guldner Gallery throughout 2017, rotating quarterly. Co-sponsored by the Charlotte Street Foundation.
