Welcome to the Visions of the Flint Hills Art Benefit.

All original Flint Hills artwork was on exhibit at the Buttonwood Art Space gallery at 3013 Main St, Kansas City, MO 64108,  October 4th through November 29th, 2013. All of the artworks can be seen here. some are still available for purchase, please inquire.

Each year, Buttonwood Art Space features original art from the Flint Hills area of Kansas.  The art benefit raises funds for a Flint Hills-based charity each year. In 2013 our charity was the Flint Hills Tourism Coalition, a 501(c)3 organization. They promote the Flint Hills as a tourist destination and support efforts to sustain local business in the area and to preserve the beauty of the native tallgrass prairie.

The Flint Hills art in this 2013 show was juried by Michael Albrechtsen, a well-known artist residing in the area. All art in this show depicts and/or is derived from the Flint Hills. Fifty-percent of the proceeds went to the artist and fifty-percent went to the Flint Hills Tourism Coalition. Buttonwood Art Space takes no commission for this annual show.

Buttonwood Art Space is underwritten by Buttonwood Financial Group, LLC.
