I am so thrilled to announce this!….
The entire WATERPLACES collection of works on paper, shown above from the Fall 2015 exhibition at the Kansas City Design Center, has been purchased by The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, Manhattan, Kansas, to be housed in the museum’s permanent collection. “The Beach” is a part of Kansas State University and impresses me so! The staff have been fantastic to work with. It’s fair to say that the people of mid and western Kansas have a keen awareness of the importance of water so this is a great fit in that respect. And their very fine collection, focused on regional work, is clearly steadily being enriched with some exciting additions!
WATERPLACES will be unveiled at the museum in a solo show in the Spring of 2018, but in the meantime watch Instagram for an upcoming slow feed of images from the collection…including, below, New River Inlet, North Carolina (Camp LaJeune).
