Bid on several exclusive art experiences including:
Jane Booth | Spring Hill
Jane Booth lives and works on a ranch overlooking broad, open vistas of native prairie, water, and sky, and uses this environment as a foundation for her work. Schooled in ceramics, Booth pursued her love of sculpture and working with her hands by becoming a steel cutter and welder before she turned to fine art. This background continues to inform her paintings, which create a visceral sense of space and depth.
Jane Booth and Kim Weinberger, owner of Weinberger Fine Art, will host an evening at Jane’s studio complete with food and wine.

Linda Lighton | Tower East
Join Linda Lighton and Weinberger Fine Art for a artist talk and cocktail reception with spirits from Tom’s Town Distillery at the artist’s studio.
Linda Lighton is a fervent arts advocate, artist, and activist. Linda Lighton’s studio is located in the Tower East neighborhood of Kansas City. Lighton received a BFA with honors from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1989 and then studied painting and ceramics, 1976-1978, at the University of Idaho. Her work has mostly been based in organic forms from nature and lately the glorification of violence and the elements that inflict them. Thus, flowers, pods and crystals have grown guns, gas pumps, bullets and lipsticks as the proliferation of war implements flower in our American lifestyle.
