Friday night’s Perspectives art show at the Boiler Room was tremendous. The energy transferred from the paintings, building structures, artists and crowd sent a rush to the senses that felt warm, welcoming and beckoned to be noticed.
Bold, bright and deliberate. The extremely diverse self-expressions from these artists were unified by their use of thick oil paint – powerfully executed with a clear intention to stimulate deep thought and soul stirring emotion. The crowd was loving it. The vibe was real, gentle, fun and beautiful. The food was divine. Fresh fruit, chocolate and cheese. Nothing processed or preserved. Just sweet, fresh, wholesome deliciousness.
I deeply appreciate the come as you are attitude in Kansas City. Especially areas like Midtown and the Crossroads, where conformity is frowned upon and – love and kindness are mandatory.
Thanks so much to everyone who came out and experienced some modern thinking and feeling through these unique and poignant oil paintings.
Hope to see everyone at Rock the Crossroads tonight. At 7pm, the 5K run/walk starts followed by music from Sons of Great Dane, The Expassionates and Atlantic Fadeout – bands go on at 8p and play until about 11p. Should be f-ing awesome.
