Local artist Alicia Kelly has created this gorgeous paper piece just for our Garden Party auction.

She has been an active member of The Paper Artist Collective since 2017. Alicia is a paper arts and serigraphy instructor at The Lawrence Arts Center and Van Go Inc. in Lawrence, Kansas. Alicia works out of her Kansas City studio in the West Bottoms.

Molly Frances Murphy, a local artist with a focus on abstract oil paintings, has donated this amazing 8 x 8" oil on paper piece, double matted and framed in white. The piece is titled "Islands."
Molly's most recent work deals with cycles of life and death as they exist in the interconnected systems between humans and the natural world. This piece insightfully bridges the gap between her recent work and her Paper Land series of oil on paper landscapes which provide flowing, active scenes which are melancholy, beautiful, and intensely alive.
