The exhibition focuses on editions, photographs and paintings from the 1950s to the present day and features renowned national and international artists, including a few local highlights. Except for the center piece by German artist Oliver Ross all other works are monochromatic and focus on one color or hue, including a captivating wall mural by local artist Rif Raf Giraffe – Not Your Friendly Neighborhood Flying Giraffe! The exhibition also features work by American minimalist sculptor, video artist and painter Richard Serra (born November 2, 1938) who is known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metal. Serra was involved in the Process Art Movement. Since 1971, Serra has made large-scale drawings on handmade Hitomi paper or Belgian linen using various techniques. In the early 1970s he drew primarily with ink, charcoal, and lithographic crayon on paper. His primary drawing material has been the paintstick, a wax-like grease crayon. Serra melts several paintsticks to form large pigment blocks. For the first time in Kansas City: Norbert Frensch (born 1960 in Mainz, Germany) is a German painter. Frensch studied from 1980 to 1986 at the College of Fine Arts in Hamburg. In his conceptual series of works, the artist reflects the phenomena of perception – between visibility and imagination – with the means of painting. The “black” pictures, which have been produced since the beginning of the 1990s, have made Frensch’s work well-known and have appeared in several solo exhibitions in museums internationally. In their sensual presence, the “blacks” take up the genre of still life and vary it with the painterly principle of the Clairobscur in an seemingly endless sequence. Other exhibited artists include: Edition & Prints: Josef Albers Ben Willikens Joan Hernandez Pijuan Ulrich Behl Guenther Uecker Martin Noel George Warren Rickey Ralf Ziervogel Rudy Autio Photography: Angie Jennings Dirk Reinartz Nick Schleich For all press inquires and group visits, contact Philipp Eirich at We encourage local museums and art groups interested in private tours to book dates in advance since this exhibition will only be on view for a seven weeks. As usual on #First Friday we’ll have chilled background tunes coming from our very own DJ Deep House Cat and will be serving libations and snacks. Our doors will open at 3pm, so make sure you’ll stop by! Submitted by: Philipp Eirich Cerbera Gallery, Inc.
