The latest in the Kansas City Public Library’s yearlong series of exhibits commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Charlotte Street Foundation features the luminous beaded works of 2007 award winner Jessica Kincaid.
The exhibit will offer an overview, dating to the visionary “Heaven and Earth” (2006) in the collection of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art. It will also feature works from the artist’s “Dream” and “Nature” series, and a new body of works, including “RosyBrown” (pictured), inspired by Kincaid’s mastery of computer coding. She recently graduated from the Web Development program at Johnson County Community College.
In the three years Espinoza has been in Kansas City, the versatile, cutting-edge artist has flown mostly under the mainstream radar, yet enjoys significant notoriety among local musicians.
