Lenexa Artists' Show

art gallery wallArtists who live in Lenexa are invited to apply for the 32nd annual Lenexa Artists’ Show. This seven-week show will be displayed in the City Hall Art Gallery, located at 17101 W. 87th St. Pkwy., from August 8 through October 1, 2023. 

We welcome two- and three-dimensional art in this popular juried show. Artists may submit up to two pieces in either category, but depending on the number of applicants and space, we may only be able to accept one piece. We will coordinate with artists prior to installation day if we are only able to show one piece.

All artists in the show must sign and submit a waiver (waivers will be emailed to applicants prior to installation day and available at art drop-off). Applications will be accepted online through July 7, 2023. 

Artists will deliver their art to the City Hall Art Gallery on Monday, Aug. 7, (details will be provided to artists who have applied). Art will be juried at the time of delivery. Artists pick up their art at City Hall October 2 from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

The public is invited to the art reception and awards ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 24 from 6-7:30 p.m.

This is a program of the Lenexa Arts Council.
