The 9th Annual Paint Parkville event was held August 1-7, 2021. The City of Parkville proudly sponsored its sixth purchase award to support the event and to bring talented artists into the community. This year’s theme was the Missouri River. Mayor Nan Johnston presented the City’s award to winning artist Elaine Haake for her painting titled “Early Morning River Walk” at the Board of Aldermen meeting on September 21, 2021.
Artists from around the Kansas City metro area converged for Paint Parkville 2021. Paint Parkville is an annual outdoor plein air painting event hosted by the Cathy Kline Art Gallery with the goal of fostering art appreciation by inviting the public to observe artists in action.
This is the sixth year the City has sponsored a purchase award for Paint Parkville. Prior themes included Parkville, the entryway sign along Highway 9 near Coffey Road east of downtown, the Parkville Nature Sanctuary, downtown Main Street and our Parkville neighborhoods. The new painting will be displayed with the other purchase awards at Parkville City Hall.
