Special exhibit at the museum showcases Native Americans in art
September 6 through October 26, 2019


Karen White, from Kansas City, Kansas is an exceptional artist who is passionate about creating art which comes to life as she expresses and shares her unique talent with the world. Her works of art tell stories, illuminate history, and depict emotions that capture a moment in time using monochrome and vibrant colors. She draws and paints from her heart with a natural talent and ability that shows what she sees and transfers those visuals to canvas, paper, walls, pavement, and illustrations for children’s books. She enjoys creating in pastel, watercolor, white chalk, oil and graphite pencil.



Karen’s art has been featured in exhibits in several Kansas City galleries, the Bruce Watkins Cultural Heritage Center, and Crown Center among others. She has created work for Iowa State University Library and Donnelly College and participated in various workshops for the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Storytellers, Inc., Youth Friends, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. She was also selected as one of ten artists to paint murals at Bartel Hall, and one of 50 featured artists at one of the Columbia, Missouri celebration of Art and Life Festivals. She was a featured artist for a Classic Black Gala and was commissioned to create a portrait drawing of the internationally acclaimed Jazz pianist Jay McShann.

For this exciting exhibit, we will showcase Ms. White’s stunning art of Native Americans. You will be delighted with the delicate beauty in the faces of strong people. Please plan to take a tour, very soon.

Special programing surrounding the art exhibit will take place during the Lost Arts Fair on Saturday, September 7th from 10 to 6 pm and Sunday, September 8 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Museum hours: Friday and Saturday, 1-5 p.m. Group tours of 10 or more may also be booked on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
