It’s sweltering outside, and the gallery scene for this month shows no sign of cooling off either. To help you plan your Final Friday in Wichita, I offer this list of must-see shows for June.
Linda K. Robinson at Center Gallery
See Linda – not just once, but twice – in two separate shows this Friday. You‘ll notice the influence of Linda’s minimalist approach in the works of many young local photographers. Attend these two great shows and you’ll understand why.
Center Gallery, 111 S. Ellis, 6-10 p.m.
Jones Gallery, 414 S. Commerce, 6–10 p.m.
Shimmering Points at Commerce Street Gallery
This is a really big group show, with contributions from more than two dozen artists, including heavy-hitters Nicholas Carvalho, Dustin Commer, Ann Resnick, Brad Ruder and Lisa Rundstrom. There seems to be no stated theme, but a street-art feel ties together many of the show’s pieces.
Commerce Street Gallery, 508 S. Commerce, 7–11 p.m.
Matthew Hilyard at City Arts
Check out some of Matthew’s wonderful abstract work in “Card Board,” which will occupy the first floor hallway gallery. This somewhat confined space can make for some delightfully small but cohesive shows.
City Arts, 334 N. Mead, 6–10 p.m.

Ann Krone and Ted Krone at Gallery XII
Ann and Ted Krone are the dedicated and much-loved cornerstones of the visual art program at Friends University. Ann will show her playful and surreal works as Gallery XII’s featured member artist and Ted will exhibit his dynamic sculptures as the featured consignment artist.
