The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art at Johnson County Community College continues its popular program,
Third Thursday · Visiting Artists’ Presentations, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 16 in the museum’s Hudson Auditorium with guest artists Mike Sinclair and Peregrine Honig, and moderators Mary Wessel (JCCC adjunct associate professor, photography) and Allison Smith (associate professor and chair, art history).
The program is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required.
Peregrine Honig often works on an intimate scale in a wide range of media. Her work explores feminine identity, concepts of beauty, and childlike fantasy through her figurative drawings, watercolors, sculpture and photography. Honig is originally from San Francisco and moved to Kansas City for study at Kansas City Art Institute. She received a Charlotte Street Foundation award in 2000, and the same year had a solo exhibition at the Greg Kucera Gallery in Seattle. She recently participated in the Bravo reality TV show “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist” and was awarded first runner-up. The JCCC collection includes Honig’s watercolor Dark Beauty, 2005, as well as her limited edition publication Widow.
