I visited the Belger Arts Center on a whim and was amazed at what was there. First, before you even get to the Belger show, you pass through a ceramics gallery called Red Star. The place is filled with beautiful work and one artist made lots of sushi-friendly work, which appeals to another love of mine. After touring the gallery, you go up to the third floor, where there are two more galleries with more gorgeous stuff. The show that was up was for Wendell Castle (google if you don't know his work). I've now decided to either save my money until I can afford one of his pieces ... or just spend the $75k on multiple trips to KC to see what else comes through. Oh and to tour both galleries cost a grand total of $0.
