FIRST FRIDAY RECEPTION: OCTOBER 7, 2022, 5PM - 8PM 

14th Annual Visions of the Flint Hills Art Benefit and Sale is a juried exhibition featuring artwork of the remarkable ecosystem that is the Flint Hills. The Flint Hills region contains the largest tallgrass prairie in North America. The beautiful scenes of the prairie inspire artists locally and nationally. 

All artworks in this exhibition will depict or be derived from the Flint Hills region of Kansas. This exhibit will run from October 3rd - December 14th, 2022 at Buttonwood Art Space, 3013 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64108. 

Art sales benefit Friends of Konza Prairie (FOKP), a friends group of Kansas State University. FOKP promotes educational research and experiences in the Konza Prairie Biological Station, an area of the Flint Hills just south of Manhattan, Kansas. The 8,600 acre Konza Prairie and the surrounding Flint Hills region contain the largest remaining parcels of the Tallgrass Prairie that once covered 140 million acres in North America. 

Each purchase of beautiful artwork will benefit FOKP with 50% of net sales going to the organization and the remaining 50% going directly to artists. 

For a $35 entry fee, artists will enter the chance to win over $1,000 in art awards in 4 different categories: Painting, Photography, 3D and Other. Submissions are limited to a maximum of 4 per artist. All submissions must be done through your Artist Profile on this website. 

Artworks will be professionally juried by the 2022 Visions Judge: TBD

ARTWORK SUBMISSION DEADLINE: AUGUST 8, 2022 BEFORE 4PM (no exceptions)
