Three artists to have opening reception Saturday at Alcott

Opening at Alcott Arts Center’s Second Saturday art exhibit on Aug. 11 will be shows by Sarah Jeanne Johnson, Lindsay Weaver and Larissa Shively-Vitt.

A reception for the three artists will be held at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, said Chris Green, executive director of the Alcott Arts Center, 180 S. 18th St., Kansas City, Kansas.

Green said Johnson is an author and spiritual artist, Weaver is an acrylic artist and Shively-Vitt is a mixed media artist.

“Sarah has written four spiritual books mainly geared toward youth,” Green said. She is from Kansas City, Kansas. “Some of her artwork is done with acrylics and kind of reflects spirituality, seeking God’s help.”

Weaver does the new acrylic pour, and sometimes uses melted wax in her works, Green said. It’s a very modern look. She is from Shawnee.

“It looks like the galaxy when you’re looking at it, you think about a nebula, galaxies and the Milky Way, when I look at her artwork,” Green said.

Shively-Vitt uses pointillism and sometimes, her work is done on to-go containers, according to Green. She is from Kansas City, Kansas.
“She’s got some awesome classic cars, for car buffs,” she said, “flowers and a dragon.”

The Alcott Arts Center gallery will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, and the art show is free and open to the public, Green said. The artists will have artwork for sale. The exhibit runs through Sept. 1.
