Photographer gives gift to artists

During the Sept. 24-25 PeaceWorks KC Local Art Fair, photographer Jim Hannah went tent to tent, taking pictures of about 45 of the 70 or so artists. Why? “In a world of so much brokenness and ugliness,” says Jim, “it is vital to honor artists and their art. They convey messages of creativity, beauty, hope. Through such expressions, the seeds of peace are sown.”

Here are Jim’s artist pictures, with some PS pics at the end. Artists, feel free to use the pictures of yourselves however you wish. Make a splash with them!
