About this Event

Join us in celebrating the exhibition, Blood, Sweat, and Tears, featuring new work by Oklahoma-born, Brooklyn-based artist Summer Wheat, and raise a glass with the artist!

In Blood, Sweat, and Tears, artist Summer Wheat’s vibrantly colored paintings depict a community of heroic females doing the “heavy lifting and running things.” Using an inventive process of pushing paint through aluminum mesh, Wheat’s large-scale paintings resemble medieval tapestries showing female figures as hunters, fishers, and beekeepers. These women rewrite historical imagery through themes such as labor, discovery, and expressions of joy where traditionally only men were present.

Blood, Sweat, and Tears is organized by Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, Missouri, and curated by Erin Dziedzic, director of curatorial affairs.

Thanks to Tom’s Town Distilling Co. of Kansas City for generously sponsoring cocktails, with complimentary beer and wine provided by Café Sebastienne.
