  • A contemporary art gallery in the heart of the Flint Hills is hosting two separate opportunities for community members – a photography workshop and juried art exhibit.
    The photography workshop on Saturday and Sunday, Photographing the Flint Hills: Discovering the Details, will lead the participants to the discovery of details in the landscape. Don Wolfe, photographer from Kansas City and Matfield Green, will lead this workshop. Wolfe’s work can be seen on exhibit in The Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs.
    On each day of the workshop, participants will shoot photos and have time to edit and process their images. The group then will review and discuss their best shots. Those taking the workshop will be encouraged to “forget about the majestic enormity of the grand view” as they focus on the details, says Ton Haak, Gallery proprietor. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.
    Artists and aspiring artists can participate in Art in the Barn, a juried art show. The theme is Prairie Architecture—from old barns to cattle pens, from silo ruins to discarded equipment. Each participant may enter three art pieces (paintings, works on paper, watercolors, mixed media); at least one entry of each participant will be shown in the iconic barn at Pioneer Bluffs through Oct. 14.
    For information about Photographing the Flint Hills, Art in the Barn, or where to stay in or near Matfield Green, contact the Gallery at gallery@pioneerbluffs.org or (620) 753-3484.
    The Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs is located in the historic ranch home of Henry and Maud Sauble Rogler.
