"Friends of SouthWind Gallery"
This October See Featured Artists Deb Groesser, Kim Casebeer, Louis Copt, Cally Krallman and Judith Mackey
Friends and fine art appreciators should experience SouthWind Art Gallery's exhibit featuring fine art by award-winning Kansas artists. This quintessentially Kansas show will sweep you away.
We are pleased to feature Deb Groesser's work in our show this month. Her oil paintings show a wide range of landscapes found around Kansas and the Midwest. She is a featured artist in the October issue of Southwest Art magazine.
Kim Casebeer works show the mesmerizing simplicity of the Kansas landscape. Her use of color and light draws the viewer into the painting. Casebeer has been showing all over Kansas lately and we are delighted to have her be a part of this show.
Louis Copt is known for capturing the vibrant colors and action of the annual prairie burns. This prolific artist has earned numerous awards and has decades of experience creating art, which is why his works demand attention.
Cally Krallman's works are memorable and collectible as the artist lends her unique style to her primarily Kansas paintings. She captures the beauty of Kansas sunsets and the vastness of the prairie. She enjoys painting "en plein aire" and sees herself as a record keeper because her paintings show "our place in time."
Judith Mackey paintings of the Flint Hills have frequently graced Southwind's walls. Her depictions of rural Kansas life are beautifully composed. She's inspired by the traditions of cowboy and ranch life, for which she loves.

"Mata Ortiz Pottery and Vessels"
SouthWind Gallery says "bienvenido" to an exclusive exhibit of beautiful handmade Mexican pottery. This exhibit and sale of pottery offers something for the collector or the generous gift giver. These pieces would make wonderful Christmas presents.
Mata Ortiz pottery is one of the finest and most innovative ceramics in the world. The small village of Mata Ortiz, located in the Sierra Madres region of Mexico, is known as a major pottery mecca with 400 artists living and working in this town of 2,000 people.
The artists of Mata Ortiz create their pots or "ollas" following centuries-old methods and, with the pots as their canvas, incorporate ancestral symbols from pre-Hispanic ceramics as well as their own creativity and spirit to conceive an artistic language that is unique.
