Kansas City’s cultural and artistic revival isn’t just limited to art galleries and museums. The entire metro area is replete with artisans who are making bold, creative statements with their respective crafts. If you’re in the market for incorporating more Kansas City artistry into your home, look no further than this list.
Cheryl Eve Acosta Sculptural Jewelry
Cheryl Eve Acosta’s Sculptural Jewelry are works of wearable art. Currently featured as one of the Kemper Museum’s Women to Watch | METALS, Acosta’s highly acclaimed work is inspired by the cycle of life. From oxygen-generating silver organisms to vibrant pieces of metal coral, jewelry from Cheryl Eve Acosta, whose studio is located in the Crossroads, will at least be a conversation-starter.
Object Enthusiast Pottery
Organic, textured shapes inlaid with gold and other deftly applied details make Object Enthusiast’s ceramic goods more than just dishes to hold your knick-knacks. Rather, if you want vessels that are works of art in and of themselves, look no further than Object Enthusiast, which is the brand of Kansas City-based ceramic artist Emily Reinhardt.
CatCoq, the print and design shop owned by designer and Kansas City native Cat Coquillette, is gaining national attention for its blend of vibrant, handprinted watercolors and otomi-inspired designs. A collaborator with brands like Madewell and Urban Outfitters and now operating out of Thailand, Cat still creates exciting prints inspired by her native city, on both sides of the state line.
You don’t have to be an art collector to appreciate beautiful work by some of Kansas City’s most talented artists. By supporting local artists and their work, you do your part to advance the artistic renaissance of this city that has been years in the making.
