About This Exhibition

Rachel Curtis’s figurative paintings in Dissolution represent a progression through a 14-year period, from chaos to stagnation and eventual dissolution. The artworks in this exhibition capture moments in time—some as static as family photos and others in a dynamic series of figures that simulate an event as it unfolds. Curtis is a prolific art maker and full-time faculty member in the Art Department at Butler Community College. Her work has been exhibited nationally and is in collections across the country.

WAM’s Regional Creatives Exhibition Series is dedicated to exhibiting art by local artists. This program is a partnership with Harvester Arts, a local nonprofit art organization fostering opportunities for Wichita creatives. Their core values of experimentation, capacity building, and community engagement are a framework for this partnership, which includes this exhibition space and programming with local creatives, including performances, talks, and pop-up experiences.
