ART AUCTION CHAIRPERSON Dear Supporters of the Arts and of the Kansas City Artists Coalition, Welcome to our 33rd Annual Art Auction. This event is made possible with the support of artists who have donated their best pieces, by the KCAC board of directors, donating their valuable time and skills and by the wonderful organization Executive Director, Janet Simpson and Assistant Director Marissa Starke. Also, one cannot forget to mention the unconditional participation of the well-oiled machine called interns and volunteers. It was last year when I compared two different support environments for the arts. Back then I talked about how Mexico and the US depend on government subsidies as opposed to private citizen’s support in respectively. I spoke about the arching benefits to the community of the arts promoting well being and intellectual curiosity with the help of the same community. You are doing just that with your presence and your support. Our responsibility and commitment at the Artists Coalition is to the artists and to those supporting the artists. This has been exactly the same principle that inspired Philomene Bennett and Lou Marak to instigate the artist’s community in establishing the foundation for the Kansas City Artists Coalition. I believe that we are harvesting the seeds from that initiative. Shortly after our 2015 Auction, The Star reported that the arts benefit the city economically by generating more than $69 million per year. They also reported that the arts and cultural organizations combined would be considered the largest employer in the city. I am proud to say that we are part of this cultural wave. It has never been a better time to live in Kansas City. This auction is our biggest yearly event and only fundraiser. All of the KCAC members are excited to meet you and thank you for your support. I also want to thank you for coming tonight on behalf of the KCAC Board of Directors. The revenue generated tonight will continue to support artist’s exhibitions, programming and our International Artist Residency Program. Our international residency is another beneficiary of the Artists Coalition work force. We host artists from around the world. Resident artists worked hard and left inspired by the artistic feedback and interest from this community. Your support will continue to enable more artists to come and share their expertise, artwork and life experience with the KC community. Every artist shares a personal lecture on philosophy, interests, time, location, struggles, etc. but the most important of all is that they transport us to their countries; it is like traveling without leaving KC. Every board member is fully committed to help preserve this support and help us to bring artists from all over the globe. Lastly, I am a professor and an artist at Kansas City Art Institute. If you know KCAI, you know that we are risk takers and firm believers of thinking outside the box. I learned about the Kansas City Artists Coalition after having a solo show here and I “discovered” a wonderful organization that promotes visual literacy and supports risk takers like me. Please look at all the works carefully, learn about the artists, friend them if you can and engage with the works with a deeper understanding of the love that goes into making every piece. Art makes life more interesting and for some of us, worth living. Please help me thank Philomene and Lou for getting us together tonight. — Miguel Rivera

PHILOMENE BENNETT & LOU MARAK ART AUCTION HONORARY CHAIRPERSONS Philomene Bennett and Lou Marak are founding members of the Kansas City Artists Coalition; on March 5, 1975 a large group of artists gathered in the Bennett and Marak studio to address ‘How the Artist Can Benefit from Centralization’. Overwhelmingly, the group felt a self-initiated organization was the only alternative to isolation, elitism, apathy, and ignorance. The ultimate result of that meeting was the incorporation of the Kansas City Artist Coalition in August 1976. Philomene Bennett attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln where she received her BFA in 1956. Lou Marak attended the University of Oklahoma, then, after a stint in the army, returned to the Kansas City Art Institute where he graduated in 1958. Between the two, Marak and Bennett have exhibited in hundreds of solo, two-person, and group exhibitions in Kansas City and around the United States throughout their extensive careers. Bennett’s distinctively bright, contemporary paintings are a Kansas City staple that can be found in collections at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC; Daum Museum in Sedalia, MO; Prudential Life Insurance in New York, NY; United Missouri Bank in Kansas City and Blue Springs, MO; Mutual Benefit Life in Kansas City, MO; Odyssian Technology in South Bend, IN; American Express in Salt Lake City, UT and many more. Marak’s commercial artwork can be found in many publications over the years and his extensive paintings and drawings can be found in collections at Hallmark in Kansas City, MO; Muschnic Art Museum in Atchison, KS; the Kemper Museum in Kansas City, MO; United Missouri Bank in Kansas City, MO; Mulvane Art Museum in Topeka, KS; Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO and many more commissions. Both Mark and Bennett spent their careers advocating for the arts. Marak worked freelance and for Hallmark Cards for 35 years and Bennett opened her studio to educate aspiring artists. Along with their rolls founding KCAC, Bennett served as Board President in 1977 and Marak held the very esteemed title of “Director of Bitching” in 1976.

kansas city artists coalition exhibition series and international residency The Kansas City Artists Coalition’s exhibitions explore the diversity of expression that shape contemporary culture, art, and ideas. KCAC is a space for innovative and experimental art, which does not readily lend itself to commercial venues. KCAC also aggressively supports and embraces local and regional artists’ work. HUGH MERRILL March 6-28, 2015 “The Kansas City Artist Coalition permitted me to break out of the traditional creation of art as painting, drawings and prints. The support provided by the Kansas City Artist Coalition allowed for a much broader and interactive use of the gallery space. KCAC is a very important part of the Kansas City arts community providing unique opportunities for both the public and artists.” DEREK COTÉ May 8 - June 20, 2015 "The Kansas City Artists Coalition allowed me the opportunity to develop an ongoing series of work by providing the space and support to experiment. The opportunities provided by spaces like KCAC are vital to the organic development of ideas and to foster critical dialogue outside the commercial sphere.” SARALYN REECE HARDY Director Spencer Museum of Art, Lawrence, Kansas “I am especially enthusiastic about the Kansas City Artist Coalition’s exhibitions because of their clear and unqualified support of artists. The Coalition has never wavered in its dedication to bring opportunities to many artists within and beyond our regional arts culture.”, from a letter of support July 2015.

ALONE AND TOGETHER: COLETTE & JEFF BANGERT A RETROSPECTIVE Upcoming June 10 - July 22, 2016 As a founder and longtime active supporter of the KCAC we are proud of KCAC’s achievements supporting art and artists. We are hopeful that our exhibition will show and point toward the use of digital information, mathematics, and computer science to heighten and grow the practice and understanding of personal art. Using computers and technology artists can create wherever an artist lives and works in the world. This KCAC retrospective of our collaborative as well as personal art would be a first time event for us and our audiences. Usually the exhibitions we have done focus on the hand work or just the digital work. Both ways of working shown in some depth would give us and our audiences understanding look at some of the possibilities now open to visual thinking.”

The mission of the Kansas City International Residency at the Artists Coalition is to bring artists from around the world together in order to build friendships and improve intercultural understanding. Alicia Candiani — ARGENTINA, September 2011 “You have put together a series of most interesting activities related with my expertise and projects. I cannot be more happy and grateful. In addition the residency facilities are superb. Everything is functional and adapts very well to the needs of the residents. This is an amazing place to stay and make projects among the artists living at the same time, your facilities are great for this.” BAI MING — CHINA, July 2013 & Upcoming Residency & Exhibition March 11- April 21, 2016 “I must say, I really had a good time here in Kansas City. The time left a deep impression on us. Because of your perfect arrangements, we feel comfortable and enjoyable and also satisfied with the work and life here. Also, I got some inspiration here, which enabled me to create some works of art. It was perfect.”
