For an emerging artist, it’s no small feat to land a prestigious Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Artist Award. Madeline Gallucci earned the honor in 2016, four years after receiving her bachelor of fine arts from the Kansas City Art Institute. From September through January, Gallucci’s colorful fragmented abstractions were displayed in the Charlotte Street Awards show at Kemper at the Crossroads. Now she’s back with a new body of work, “influenced,” she says, “by the intersection of camouflage patterning and digital debris,” in a two-person show at Weinberger Fine Art.

“Habitual Observations: Paintings by Madeline Gallucci and Brenda Zappitell” opens with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. March 2, with an artist talk at 6:30 p.m., and continues through April 29 at Weinberger Fine Art, 114 Southwest Blvd. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, 816.301.4428 or www.weinbergerfineart.com.
