The 11th Annual Paint Parkville event was held October 7-14, 2023. The City of Parkville proudly sponsored its eighth purchase award to support the event and to bring talented artists into the community. This year’s theme was Barkville, the dog parks in Platte Landing Park. Mayor Dean Katerndahl presented the City’s award to winning artist Joe Patterson for his painting titled “Walking the Dog in English Landing” at the Board of Aldermen meeting on October 17.
Artists from around the Kansas City metro area converged for Paint Parkville 2023. 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 eighth 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, our Parkville neighborhoods, Honoring our First Responders, the Missouri River and Historic Parkville. The new painting will be displayed with the other purchase awards at Parkville City Hall.
