The Studios Inc is pleased to announce that studio(s) will become available in the beginning of 2015.
The Studios Inc provides a three-year residency to competitively selected mid-career artists intent on moving to the next level of success. Expansive private studio space provides room to expand the scale of works. A patron underwrites each artist’s studio, building mutually meaningful relationships between local artists, and new and seasoned collectors. The Studios’ programs support the symbiotic relationship between artists and collectors essential for a thriving visual art community. The Studios nurtures symbiosis at a micro level with focus on a selected group of artists and the patrons who support them. Combined, The Studios Inc is a vital part of the visual art community’s unprecedented growth.
A selection panel consisting of a variety of individuals from the Kansas City area is assembled and convenes; it is this selection panel that determines which applicants will be awarded studio spaces in 2015. Applications are currently being solicited at www.thestudiosinc.org ; materials must be received no later than October 15, 2014.
Residencies are open to all visual artists. The Studios Inc does not discriminate on the basis of age, ethnicity, gender, economic or social standing, political or religious beliefs, marital status, or sexual orientation.

In her latest New York exhibition, Jaimie Warren comes across as a force of nature, or at least pop culture, whose work brims with messy promise. Based in Kansas City, Mo., and New York, Ms. Warren is a founder of Whoop Dee Doo, a traveling artist-run project that has created performances and installations at universities, festivals and museums since 2006. On her own, she concocts photographic impersonations of celebrities and characters from the world of entertainment. These pictures indicate a talent for color and tactility (to say the least) as well as for rough-edged transformation that combines aspects of the work of Continue Reading…
