Fiber Artists Wearable Art Show!

This month we have the pleasure of Wearable Fiber Art as our featured show with a reception opening on Friday December 15th from 6-9.

All members of our group are participants in the Weavers Guild and Fiber Guild of Kansas City.  Each group member works as a professional artist creating their artistic wearable art products.  All items in this group show are original design wearable art perfect for holiday gift giving.

Annual Children's Art Show Call For Artists

We strongly believe in encouraging and recognizing student works and this annual event offers the opportunity for young local artists, Pre-K through 8th grade, to show their work publicly at the gallery. There is no cost to participate and all entrants receive a commemorative ribbon. We will also be displaying the traveling 2018 People To People International Peace Murals, a work created by young artists from all over the world.

An opening night reception, including light refreshments, will be held February 16th during downtown Overland Park’s Local Life (third Friday) event. All participating students, families, and friends are invited to celebrate these young artists.

Call For Artists

Featured Artists Reception September 2016 We're looking for artists who want to sell their work and have good art to sell! We're always looking to up our game so we're always on the prowl for exciting and emerging artists! The process is easy and we're here to hold your hand and encourage you through it.  We’ll partner you with a mentor for the first few months to help you learn how to display and market your work. Here’s how it works:
  • Contact Debbie Stone using the form at this link.
  • She’ll ask you to submit 5 pieces of your artwork for our jury of artists to evaluate.
  • Once you’re approved, we’ll set up a time to set up your display!
Since we’re a member owned and operated business you’ll need to be involved in working a few shifts at the gallery every month (don’t worry, we’ll train you).  We’ll also ask you to roll up your sleeves and get involved in helping to do a few other things around the gallery.  Maybe marketing, merchandising, social media or perhaps working on our presentation or art display committees. The cost to join is a very affordable $60/month and you get 70% of everything you sell!  You’ll be listed here on our website and we have a web guru who can help you get a site of your own up and running if you need it.

Please consider donating to this very worthy cause.

In June, 1988, under the auspices and the contribution of start up funds from Greater Kansas City Art Association (GKCAA), Images Art Gallery was begun in Westport.

The intent of the group was multi-purpose:

  • to promote local artists
  • to plan classes and set up a teaching classroom
  • to contribute to community services

By-laws were written and officers were elected. The Gallery operated as a co-op, with member volunteers staffing the gallery. A non-profit tax status was first attained by GKCAA and then subsequently obtained by Images Art Gallery.

Approximately five years later, due to changes in the Westport area, the gallery closed. The group stayed together with monthly meetings and began exhibiting their art in various satellites in the city.
Soon after the Westport Images Art Gallery closed, Images received a $1,000 donation from Marilyn Holland Schweder, one of Images Gallery’s original members. When Marilyn died in 1994, memorial donations were made to help Images start a new gallery.

On May 14, 1996, nineteen members met to discuss beginning a new Gallery on the 3rd floor of the historic McQueeny Lock building at 520 W. Pennway. At a later meeting, 27 members indicated their willingness to form a co-op gallery. We took possession of the gallery and held our first meeting as a co-op there on June 15, 1996. We opened for business on Thursday, July 11, 1996. The first Gallery reception was held on Friday, August 2, 1996 with Charles Stegner and Myrna Minnis as featured artists.

As the gallery stairs and the lack of visibility became an issue, we began looking for other space, and in the summer of 2001, we moved into new, more visible ground-level space at 1721 Westport Road.

In 2005, with more activity taking place in the Crossroads area of the city, we began looking seriously for space there. In mid-July of 2005, we moved to 1520 Walnut, in the northeast area of the Crossroads. Unfortunately, with the opening of the Sprint Center just a few blocks away, we experienced a severe shortage of parking for our patrons, so once again began looking for appropriate art space.

In September 2009 we moved to downtown Old Overland Park, just around the corner from the clock tower and beside the Farmers’ Market. We are excited to be a part of the revitalization of downtown Overland Park where we can be found in the midst of other fine art galleries.

Be sure to stop by our gallery and enjoy the fine art of our talented members.
