The Fresh Produce Art Collective presents a series of Underground Art Market events this holiday season, beginning with Black Saturday, November 24th at the Lost Art Sp_ce downtown. This exhibition will feature smaller works, prints, ephemera, and artist proofs- “leftovers” culled from the work of the previous twelve months. It also kicks off the theme of X Mass @ Lost Art Sp_ce an ongoing show that invites people to get under the surface of consumer culture and discover art and artifacts that resonate with deeper meaning, and keep the exchange of commerce within the local community. On November 30, the gallery will feature the Downtown Underground Art Market as part of the Final Fridays Art Walk, which will condense and rarify the conglomerated works into a voodoo fit of apoplexy befitting the spirit of the season.
Following close on its heels, the Fresh Produce Art Collective is reported to been seen making works for an inaugural Kansas City show opening on December 7th, part of the Crossroads Art District’s First Friday Art Walk. Details are sketchy, but sources close to members of the collective say the show, entitled “Glimpse” will give viewers a chance to see works being created in and around the environs of the SeedCo Studios in East Lawrence, KS. The exhibition space, located at 19th and Wyandotte will feature the works of artists Jeremy Rockwell, Molly Murphy, Erok Johannsen, Alicia Kelly, Jeromy Morris, Matt Ridgway, Jesse Gray, Yuri Zupancic, and Paul Flinders , and after the 7th will be open with holiday hours as well as available by appointment.
To round out the celebrations are two events at the SeedCo Studios: On Saturday Dec. 15, the East Side Underground Art Market Invitational will showcase the wares of local purveyors of fine art, contemporary crafts, jewelry, furniture and more, as well as open studios featuring the work of Seed Co’s resident artists. And finally New Year’s Eve at SeedCo: Post Apocalyptic End of the World Show featuring a slew of surprise musical guests and performers, televised live to a worldwide audience.
