Local artist’s Kickstarter campaign down to the wire

The life of an artist is more than brooding over how to make a piece just right. It also involves raising money to create projects or travel to exhibitions.

And that’s what has Lawrence artist Darin White stressing out these days.

Lawrence artist Darin White’s “Overflow” involves a makeshift barn overflowing with corn. He has just over 24 hours left to raise $5,000 to fund a trip to New York to show the exhibit.

White, a sculptor who dabbles in other media, is waging an online fundraising campaign to help curate an exhibit in New York City later this month. And time is running out for White to reach his $5,000 goal on Kickstarter, the online fundraising portal that giveth and taketh away… (read more)

Rex Hausmann – Dannon Art Project – The Lawrence Arts Center

San Antonio-based artist Rex Hausmann made a corner of the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H., into his personal studio this past week, creating a painting in public view. And on Friday he’ll turn that space over to Lawrence-area artists to respond in their own way.

With the Dannin Art Project — named after the inspiration for the painting, Hausmann’s friends and local arts people Darin and Shannon White — Hausmann hopes to take all the elements that go into a gallery showing and put them right in the gallery for the public to see. Hausmann has made his creative process as open as possible. He’s clearly stated his inspiration, and has even taken the time to explain all of the symbolism in the painting on small posters throughout the makeshift gallery, which is located on the north end of the second floor at the LAC.

SOCIALmixedMEDIA Digital Survey Exhibition

In the spirit of the 2011 Mississippi Invitational (on view at the Museum through February 5, 2012) we called on our Facebook fans to help us curate a digital exhibition on our Facebook page. This inaugural SOCIALmixedMEDIA Invitational was composed entirely of work submitted by those fans. We thank all of you who submitted, viewed, and engaged with the over one hundred pieces of art in that digital exhibition. View the complete album of all of those works here.

We are proud to present this survey exhibition of some of the most popular and well received works in the SOCIALmixedMEDIA Invitational. These selected artworks are those that received the most positive feedback on Facebook. There are thirteen artists in the 2011 Mississippi Invitational whose work illustrates the bounty of contemporary Mississippi art. Likewise, these twelve artworks in various mediums from the digital SOCIALmixedMEDIA Invitational embody the spirit of the Mississippi Invitational and showcase the breadth of talent throughout the state and beyond.

Sweeping Up the Mess Call for Entries

Guest Curator: Darin White
Hillyard is excited to announce that Darin White, Lawrence, KS, has agreed to guest curate and jury the exhibit. White’s recent curatorial work includes: New Old San Antonio: Tales From The Little Big Town (Opening April 29th, 2011 and co curated with Rex Hausmann), Anthropoi, White Show, Dry Bones, and TRANS•parent TRANS•lucent which was hailed by Review Mid-America’s Visual Arts Publication as being “mesmerizing, beautiful, puzzling, and disturbing, but what perhaps makes it successful overall is the effective curation. White has put together an exhibition that is direct and sensible; it creates an environment capable of producing dialogue between viewers.” In its review of Anthropoi, the publication states, “White’s curatorial and promotional skills are causing much murmur in Lawrence’s fairly tight-knit arts community.” …read more
