NOW ON VIEW
If you head over tonight to the Kansas City Artists Coalition (201 Wyandotte, 816-421-5222) thinking you know what the word drawing means, you may be in for a surprise. New York sculptor Ben Entner has thrown conventional concepts of the medium out the studio window in favor of a more playful approach. Both graphite and charcoal figured into his two large-scale Works on Paper, but he used a hair dryer to inflate them. Entner’s work is on view in the KCAC’s Mallin Gallery.Another new KCAC exhibition in the Jacqueline B. Charno Gallery features the mixed-media works of Heinrich Toh, a Kansas City transplant originally from Singapore. Toh’s Revolving Remembrance reflects on memory, identity and the experience of cultural displacement and assimilation that result from travel and relocation. Both receptions run from 5 to 8 p.m. The art remains on view through January 16.
