Vibrant exhibit is now open at Belger Arts







Kansas City, MO - Belger Crane Yard Studios presents Vibrant: The Art of Christina Erives, Lauren Mabry and Shalene Valenzuela. The exhibit opened in early October and is open from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at 2011 Tracy Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64108. The exhibition will remain on view through December 31, 2020.


Vibrant is an exploration of the application of color and the manipulation of ceramic surfaces by three distinct artists. Christina Erives’ vibrant and often playful works vividly illustrate personal stories and celebrate rituals and traditions of her Mexican culture. The lush surfaces of Lauren Mabry’s abstract, cylindrical forms convey her fascination with experimentation, color, and visual movement. Shalene Valenzuela’s porcelain surfaces entice viewers to discover narratives that lie just below chromatic depictions of mundane, household activities. While each artist’s work is uniquely inspired, they all share a technical focus and an embrace of color that evokes emotion and engages the senses.


Since 2000, the Belger Arts Center has encouraged viewers to explore, question, and deepen their understanding of art and of the world around them. Drawing upon the extensive, John and Maxine Belger Family Foundation collection, as well as a rich variety of local, national, and international artists, the Belger Arts Center has staged over 70 large-scale exhibitions that represent some of the best in contemporary art.
