Registration for the PeaceWorks Kansas City Local Art Fair, Sept. 21-22, has
begun. We are excited to introduce artist Terri Pollack. She is new to our fair and
looks forward to the exposure and networking opportunities it will bring. “I like
color and line,” she says. “And I do commissions for anyone wanting a portrait.”
Check out Terri’s website at Her social media links

Kansas City is full of talented artists and creative souls. This will be our 33rd year
presenting this popular event showcasing local artists. Artists tell us they like our
fair because they keep a generous amount of what they produce. Once the fair is
paid for, the rest funds the good work PeaceWorks KC does to promote peace and
resist war all year.
Artists can register on our website, We are
taking registrations now till Aug. 30. Concerning the fair, “It will be good,” Terri
says. “I’m looking forward to working with you all.”
