Wichita Women Artists

(NEWTON, Kan.) – More than 25 artists who are members of the Wichita Women Artists association will showcase their work at Carriage Factory Art Gallery, beginning with an opening reception Saturday, March 10, 7 p.m.

The event will feature music by the Ambiance Trio with Vada Snider on flute, Catherine Everingham on violin, and Tracy Keraly on cello. There will be an artist talk and refreshments. The reception is free and open to the public.

The Wichita Women Artists group was founded in 1950 with the purpose of encouraging members’ creative growth and acquainting a larger cross-section of Wichita and south central Kansas with original art. Members now include artists beyond the immediate Wichita area. The group is diverse, with their work representing sculpture, oil, watercolor, pastel, alcohol ink, collage and mosaic. The exhibit will be on display and for sale through May 4.
