"2020 Visions of the Flint Hills - Virtual Only"
October 2nd through November 20th, 2020

EXHIBITION DATES: OCTOBER 2, 2020 - NOVEMBER 20, 2020

FIRST FRIDAY RECEPTION: OCTOBER 2, 2020, 6PM - 9PM (Virtual Only)

12th Annual Visions of the Flint Hills Art Benefit and Sale is a juried exhibition featuring artwork of the remarkable ecosystem that is the Flint Hills. The Flint Hills region contains the largest tallgrass prairie in North America. The beautiful scenes of the prairie inspire artists locally and nationally. 

All artworks in this online exhibition will depict or be derived from the Flint Hills region of Kansas. This exhibit will run from October 2 - November 20, 2020 at Buttonwood Art Space, 3013 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64108. 

Art sales benefit 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. 

Buttonwood Art Space and FOKP are fully aware of the struggles artists are facing in the wake of COVID-19. As such, we have removed the entry fee for this exhibition. We do still plan to provide artists awards for 4 different categories: Painting, Photography, 3D and Other. Submissions are limited to 5 per artist.  

ART SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 31, 2020 by 4pm
