Art on the Plains is the Plains Art Museum’s signature juried exhibition for contemporary art in the region. Now in its eleventh year, AOP has become an important career builder for emerging artists and a point of pride among more established professional artists. The exhibition is known for presenting the latest trends in art of the region, providing a snapshot of the artists and art that make up our regional art scene. This year’s accepted entries represent 48 artists from four states.
AOP was juried by Hesse McGraw, curator for the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha, Neb. He is the former assistant director of Max Protetch gallery in New York City and former senior editor of Review, a Kansas City-based visual culture magazine. He was the founding director and curator of Paragraph, a contemporary art gallery operating under the non-profit Urban Culture Project in downtown Kansas City, Mo. He has curated exhibitions for FLEX Self Storage (Topeka, Kan.), The New Genres Festival (Tulsa), The Stray Show (Chicago), Guild and Greyshkul (NYC), -scopeMiami, RARE (NYC), Rocket gallery (London) and White Flag Projects (St. Louis).
