Among the 80 artists who’ve applied for the PeaceWorks KC Local Art Fair, many are creating new works for us as the fair approaches. We’ll hold our fair 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, Sept. 24, and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday, Sept. 25, at Theis Park, south of Cleaver Blvd. and along Oak St.

Here’s a teaser for our fair, our only annual fundraiser. We hope these treasures catch your eye!
