The MCC-Longview Cultural Arts Center Gallery is pleased to announce the second annual group exhibition entitled, “Here and Now: A Look at the Local Arts.”

The presentation focuses on artists living or working in Lee’s Summit or southeastern Jackson County. The area is home to numerous talented artists who are making great developments within their practices.

With artworks ranging from regional landscapes, exquisitely crafted observational figure drawings, clean and colorful painterly abstraction, large scale non-objective works and mixed-media collages, we believe you’ll enjoy the diversity and perspectives.
