2019 Prairie Village Art Show – Call For Artists

The Shops of Prairie Village announces a call for artists for the 2019 Prairie Village Art Show, not located on a prairie but in the heart of Kansas City metro area. It is celebrating its 63rd year and is the second oldest show in the city. The show is well attended and draws patrons from the entire metropolitan area. The show is small with only 100 artists from all parts of the country. This shopping area was developed by the same company that built the Country Club Plaza, location of the Plaza Art Show.
