Upcoming Exhibitions at the KIA

Young Artists of Kalamazoo County
March 25 - April 15, 2017

Every year, art teachers in the Kalamazoo County schools (private, public, and charter schools) submit a selection of works produced by their students, featured in an exhibition that is a delight to behold. In one of our most popular shows each year, the KIA's galleries are filled with the most creative, colorful, whimsical art by young artists from kindergarten through eighth grades.

Impressions: Printmaking in Japan
April 1 - July 23

Traditional Japanese woodblock prints fascinated Western artists in the late 19th century. The sense of space, color and pattern and the glimpse of a distant time and place shown in these prints continue to captivate audiences today. Works from the KIA collection demonstrate the shift from traditional processes and imagery through the developments leading to Japanese printmaking of today.

This exhibition is supported by the Joy Light East Asian Art Acquisition and Exhibition Fund.
