"Rhythm and Reveal"
June 27th through September 22nd, 2022

EXHIBITION DATES: JULY 1 - SEPTEMBER 22, 2022 

FIRST FRIDAY RECEPTION: AUGUST 5, 2022, 5PM - 8PM 

How do you reveal the strength of the human spirit and a community? By cultivating a community seeking reconciliation, by creating healing gathering places that reveal the strength of all. Music can create a common gathering space. Rhythm inspires movement. Kansas City’s rich musical history reveals the strength of our evolving city and its cultures. Celebrate the rhythm of life with “Rhythm & Reveal” at Buttonwood Art Space! This exhibit will feature artwork in all mediums (painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, works on paper, video, etc.) revealing the rhythm of life's powerful beat. Art submissions may include images inspired by music, gathering together, movement, dance, rhythms in life, and strength revealed. We can’t wait to see what artists submit for this exhibition!

Celebrate the rhythm of life. Feel its powerful beat. 

Reveal the strength within. Together is where we begin. 

“Rhythm & Reveal” is an art benefit for Reconciliation Services (RS). For 30 years, RS has worked to level the playing field for neighbors who have faced social, racial, and economic discrimination and disinvestment. RS addresses community needs for affordable food access; a safe place to gather to combat social isolation and increase community engagement; and increased access to social and mental health services that lead to improved health and self-sufficiency. 

First Friday will be held on August 5, 2022 in person at Buttonwood Art Space (3013 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64108) from 5pm - 8pm and all are welcome to join! Monetary awards for artists will be announced during First Friday.

50% of each artwork sold will go to RS with the remaining 50% going directly to artists for their beautiful creations.

Entry Fee: $15 for a maximum of 5 submissions 

ART SUBMISSION DEADLINE: JUNE 1, 2022 BEFORE 4PM (no exceptions)
