Community Projects

September - October 2018: Fourteen artists will be participating in the "Head in the Trees" community exhibition at the Brushwood Center for Nature, Art and Well-Being. These works will be exhibited alongside Kaye Buchman's "Head in the Trees" large-scale ink and watercolor drawings inspired by the oak tree savannah restoration efforts of the Brushwood Center in Riverwoods, Illinois, the unique landscape of Shawnee National Forest, and enduring myths and fairytales that draw upon the mystic power of trees and forest settings.

August 2017: Eleven KB Studio artists participated in the "Waiting In Air" community printmaking project. Participants explored a wide range of techniques and processes including chine colle, digital, linocut, and monoprint. Each artist created an edition of 12 prints to exchange with the group. These print suites were combined in handmade portfolios created specifically for the project and included title and colophon pages. The project concluded with a print exchange party and everyone going home with a wonderful collection of prints! Participants include Kaye Buchman, Joan Baer, Virginia Carstarphen, Min Ding, Susan Gamerman, Phyllis Rabineau, Mary Ridley, Loreen Strasser, Sue Teller, Julie Tierney, and Jan Wishinsky.
