"Anderson Ranch Legacy: Mentoring Artistic Excellence", Kansas City Convention Center Room 1501C, Level 1
Anderson Ranch Arts Center has a long history of enriching lives with art, inspiration and community. The Ranch began as an artist-run collaborative in 1966, when artists such as Paul Soldner came to create work and teach. This exhibit brings together Anderson Ranch faculty, residents and students to celebrate 50 years of mentorship and the positive impact the Ranch experience has had – and continues to have – on the artistic development of its students and residents.

All of the artists invited to this exhibition have stayed with Bird and Michel Loomis while in town as demonstrators for the Lawrence Arts Center’s Ceramics Symposium. At some point each invited artist has enjoyed a spirited conversation and cup of coffee while perched around the Loomis’ kitchen island. Bonds and unexpected connections arise from the warmth and energy in the Loomis’ Victorian home filled with contemporary art.
The common thread in a sense is that “we were here”.
This exhibition is a ledger, a record, and a signal of paths that have crossed ~despite any separation of time or distance.
The Lawrence Arts Center will be presenting this exhibition at the Cider Gallery, which is a beautiful exhibition space a few blocks from the Arts Center.
Exhibition Dates: February 26th, 2015 to March 19th, 2015
