From August 13-19, 2016, artists from around the Kansas City metro area will converge in Parkville for Paint Parkville 2016. Artists will also be set up during Parkville Days on August 19-21, 2016. Paint Parkville is an annual outdoor painting event hosted by the Parkville Area Chamber of Commerce and Cathy Kline Art Gallery with the goal of fostering art appreciation by inviting the public to observe artists in action. All the artwork painted throughout the week will be for sale at the art tent during Parkville Days.
As part of Paint Parkville 2016, the City of Parkville is sponsoring a purchase award with the theme of the new entryway sign along Highway 9 near Coffey Road east of downtown Parkville. A selection committee will vote on a favorite painting at an artist reception on Thursday, August 18, 2016, from 6-8 p.m. at the Train Depot, 8701 NW River Park Drive. Mayor Nan Johnston will present the City’s winning painting at the art tent on Friday, August 19, 2016, around 5:00 p.m.
The winning painting will be displayed at Parkville City Hall.
