Linden - Opening Night

Presented by Charlotte Street Foundation and Mid-America Arts Alliance at Mid-America Arts Alliance

M-AAA presents Marcie Miller Gross’s Linden in conjunction with Charlotte Street Foundation’s Every Street is Charlotte Street series

Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA) is pleased to present Linden by Kansas City artist Marcie Miller Gross, opening for First Friday October 6 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. at 2018 Baltimore in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. Linden debuts as part of Every Street is Charlotte Street, celebrating twenty years of partner organization Charlotte Street Foundation’s Award Fellows.

Through an incremental means of building, Miller Gross, a Charlotte Street Fellow in 2004, studies repetition, mass and void, physicality and weight, compression and release. Her work is informed by repetitious activity and simple gestures of the hand, as in folding, stacking, and cutting.  Within these qualities, the artist finds parallels in the physical and psychological states of the body, the environment, and sensory knowledge.
