Nick Jaina hosts a special hour of conversation, tea, color immersion, music, and reading from his new book SPEKTRUM. Every session is different because the guests bring their own excitement and hesitation, and the color for each hour is determined by a randomly selected card.
Fisch Haus artist Jamie Tabor presents 'Lines, New Paintings', a collection of paintings that use energetic color and bold strokes to create a feeling of warmth and bliss.
Patrick Duegaw presents A Guy, a Fisch, and an Accidental Arsonist. This pop-up Bildlab exhibition features prints from his fire extinguisher lithograph series (the props), a large interior painting with a hidden fish (the set), and several portrait study drawings and prints (the cast of characters).
Fisch Haus is still not technically open, but we are very pleased to welcome Meghan Miller into our space while she constructs the large-scale work for her MFA thesis exhibition. Entitled The Midnight Garden Coffee Shop, the handmade installation explores the magic of third places and liminal spaces.
To accompany her solo exhibitions at the Ulrich Museum of Art and Steckline Gallery, Ann Resnick presents a series of intimate, provocative, and stirring prints and drawings, created between 1986 and 1992. This body of work has never been shown in Kansas before, and is a revelatory compliment to the large scale installations at both museums.
