After the winter break we cordially invite you to join us on the occasion of the opening of this season’s first exhibition in The Bank art space, Matfield Green, Kansas.

Adriana “Adri” Luna, originally from Visalia in California’s Central Valley, at present living and working in Kansas City, Missouri is the 6th artist to show work in Matfield Green in the series “The Young Ones”. Luna’s art works, combinations of painted paper “flowers” rising like sculptures from subtle drawings and prints, are a perfect fit for springtime.

The opening reception of Adri Luna’s show “Bloom” will be on Saturday April 4, from 2 to 5. The artist will be present.

Luna says: “I was born in the wrong time period. If I could I would live in the early 1920s, holed up in some smoke filled café drinking strong drinks and discussing art. I long for that atmosphere. Artists working together and discussing new ideas then creating amazing work! But alas, I am in the now. I am a working artist living in Kansas City. I studied printmaking at the Kansas City Art Institute but I love working in all different mediums including painting, drawing, book arts and installations. I love all forms of art but there is just something special about printmaking. The smell of the ink, multiples…. sigh. I love it.”
