Arboretum Host Local Artisan Expo

Posted 3/5/2013

The Dyck Arboretum of the Plains is hosting an Art Symposium on Saturday, March 9 from 9 a.m. to 3:40 p.m.  The event will feature local artists displaying Kansas-inspired work.

Coordinator of the symposium, Brad Guhr said the event was a very unique opportunity for Hesston residents to see several local artisans gathered and displaying their work in one place.

“Kansas, and especially South Central Kansas is home to a number of very important and talented artists that Hesston residents will have the opportunity to congregate with in one space, on one day.  Attendees will also be fed well with a continental breakfast and a soup lunch. Don't miss this unique event,” he said.

Guhr said the Arboretum was naturally suited to this kind of event.

“I felt that the Arboretum would be the perfect place to explore further the rich connection that prairie and art share in Kansas,” he said.

The event will feature a dozen Kansas artisans and a wide variety of artistic mediums.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to and interact with high-caliber artists sharing there stories, inspirations, and even trade secrets in a beautiful prairie garden setting,” said Guhr.

Throughout the day, artists will be hosting lectures as well as demonstrations for attendees.
