At A Distance #3The At A Distance project was originally conceived as a way of connecting the arts community in Wichita, Kansas to a variety of contemporary art practices from other parts of the world.
The artist A. P. Vague, then faculty at Wichita State University, created the first iteration of this exhibition in 2017, which featured work by artists from six different countries, none of whom had previously exhibited in Kansas.
Connie NoyesMy work is an immersion in mourning research. Two-years ago when my father and husband died within days of each other, the fundamental drives of my practice changed radically.

Craig NeesonPanther Blinded by Shotgun
In 2016 a Florida panther was intentionally blinded by a hunter and left to die a slow, painful death by starvation. The cat was subsequently "rescued" and is currently held in the captivity of a private zoo. This show is the result of empathic over-identification with an apex predator, the primordial seduction of human/animal hybridity, and a seething fear that we've all lost our eye for evil.
