Two for the Show

Connect Gallery highlights two “Emerging Artists” in August

Two young artists are highlighted in Connect Gallery’s shortened August show with a reception Aug. 7 from 5:30-9 p.m. Lila Ferber will show both sculptures and oil paintings in the exhibit.  Ferber uses nature as a jumping off place in her work, which is generally non-representational. 

A current student for two years at Kansas City Art Institute, She began her visual explorations during high school at the Kent Bellows Studio, ending up spending several days a week at the venue. Ferber calls the Bellows years “the best education in the world.”  She plans to travel (Europe) and continue with museum work after graduation. (Shown: a sculpture: “Coral”)

Le (pronounced “Lay”) Drake will show plein-aire oil paintings in this show.  “Hazy Day”, is part of her work done on location.  Drake cites her mentorship with painter J.K. Thorsen as a boost to her college work.   She has traveled to Viet Nam, India and China as part of a mission tour, which one would hope might somehow appear in her artwork.

Emerging Artists is featured at Connect Gallery, 3901 Leavenworth Street,                                                                           August 5th-8th,with a reception Aug 7th, 5:30 to 9 p.m.  (Balance of August by appt. only).
