Opening Reception: January 15th 3 - 5 p.m.

Houston Artist, Jeremy Underwood's art photography embodies our complicated relationship with the environment and the contemporary landscape, focusing on the tension between nature and culture shaping these physical spaces.

The Gallery of Art and Design and the UCM Art Education program at the University of Central Missouri will host Gallery Kids from 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 a.m., February 7th, in the gallery located at 217 E. Clark in Warrensburg, Mo.

Kids ages 5-12 are invited to tour the current exhibitions and create artwork based upon their experience! Each student participating will leave with his or her own piece, created with the assistance of UCM art education students.

Enrollment is open on a first come, first served basis, with the class limited to 20. There is no charge for the event.

"Our Gallery Kids events have been hugely popular," said Christian Cutler, gallery director ."We created Gallery Kids as a way to reach out to the community in an effort to bring more community members into the UCM's Gallery of Art and Design, which is a wonderful space to experience regional, national and international visual art and design."

Cutler added that gallery exhibits change every three to four weeks. In addition to Gallery Kids, the galleries will be open for visitors. Currently on display is Melissa Wilkinson's painting series, ABMASTERS; Pradip Malde's photography from Haiti entitled THIRD HEAVEN; and PROCESS WORK! curated by Professor of Art, John Malta.
