"2019 Visions of the Flint Hills"
October 4th through November 21st, 2019

11th ANNUAL VISIONS OF THE FLINT HILLS ART BENEFIT AND SALE is a juried exhibition featuring artwork of the vanishing prairie.  All artworks depict or are derived from the Flint Hills region of Kansas.  This exhibition will run from October 4 - November 21, 2019 at Buttonwood Art Space, 3013 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64108. 

This juried exhibition benefits Friends of Konza Prairie (FOKP), a friends group of Kansas State University.  FOKP promotes educational research and experiences in the Konza Prairie Biological Station, an area of the Flint Hills just south of Manhattan, Kansas.  The 8,600 acre Konza Prairie and the surrounding Flint Hills region contain the largest remaining parcels of the Tallgrass Prairie that once covered 140 million acres in North America.  

Each purchase of beautiful artwork will benefit FOKP with 50% of net sales going to the organization and the remaining 50% going directly to artists.  

This year's juror, Terry Evans, will select artworks for the exhibition.  Evans is a well-known photographer and Kansas City native.  Her inspiration comes from prairies, primarily in the Flint Hills area.  

For a small $35.00 entry fee, artists will enter the chance to win over $1,000 in art awards for 4 different categories: Painting, Photography, 3D and Other. Submissions limited to maximum of 4 per artist.  

ART SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 19, 2019 (no exceptions)
