Landmark Art

We have always been art lovers, and in 2007, we commissioned Kansas artist Jamie Lavin to paint the Kansas Landmarks Collection Series.  The series includes sixteen original paintings that encompass historic Kansas landmarks corresponding to many of our locations.  In addition to our own collection, we regularly feature works by area artists in some of our branches.  You’ll find more info on our current exhibits below.

Lawrence

Artist: Steve Anderson, “It’s What I See!”

After more than four decades in music as a professional performer, teacher, administrator, and producer, Steve Anderson retired.  Now, he takes photographs of what he sees and interests him for some reason…line, color, texture, shape, reflections, and so forth.  He’s interested in things that are what they appear to be and things that are not readily identifiable, things that no one has seen before and that may not be seen again.  Works featured here: Rusty ‘Jet’, Greek God Mercury, Lawrence Lights

       

Prairie Village

Artist:  Karrie Baxley

Karrie Baxley’s art is created from the eyes of the feminine, embracing the beauty of the human form as her muse, bringing forth the communion of experiences, beauty, and memories merging of man and nature.
