Wester Remains for March First Friday


After a successful February First Friday showing, Wester will be on view for March First Friday

M-AAA is pleased to present Wester: Works on Paper from the Konza Prairie by artist Erin Wiersma of Manhattan, Kansas, for First Friday March 1 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. at 2018 Baltimore in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. This will be the last opportunity to see Wester, as the exhibition will close immediately following First Friday. Artist Erin Wiersma will be in attendance.

Wiersma makes her work by dragging pieces of paper—sometimes loose-leaf, sometimes mounted on a tube—along the floor of burned sections of the Konza Prairie. The resulting pieces—part collaboration with nature, part process art, part record of a performance—act as a document of Wiersma’s travels through the fields.

Learn more about these works, visit again, and take advantage of the chance to talk to the artist. In addition to approximately ten works on paper, the exhibition includes a short video of Wiersma making her work out in the field. Wester samples from a larger series (forty-plus works) of Wiersma’s previous works.
