KC Artist Brad Ultican Exhibits Art at the 1855 Harris-Kearney House Museum

Brad Ultican returns to display his artwork in the upstairs gallery of the 1855 Harris-Kearney House Museum. The museum is proud to have previously hosted this talented local artist in 2013. Brad's work was so well-liked that he was asked to do another show in April 2014. His art features classic American scenes in pencil drawings and etchings. A free grand showing will be held on April 5. Museum hours on that day will be extended to 11 am-6 pm. Refreshments will be provided.

Brad strives to create unique perspectives into the culture, nature, and aesthetics of good ol’ Americana. Beautiful and impressive, his scenes range from high detail “folk realism” graphite pencil drawings and hand printed etchings, to digital photography of distinct American scenes taken while on various trips around our great country. He continues to develop his techniques as he studies the etchings of master artists such as Rembrandt and Albrecht Durer.

This exhibit will be open for viewing from April 1-30, during regular museum hours, Wednesday through Saturday from 1-5 pm. Admission to the exhibit is free.
