The Late Show

Laura Nugent is showing new and recent works at The Late Show on June 2, 2017. This display includes larger acrylic on canvas paintings and smaller framed works from her "Undiscovered Countries" series.  Laura’s exhibit was scheduled and curated by Tom Deatherage, the longtime proprietor of The Late Show, who passed away on May 16.

This First Friday event is one of note. “Tom’s impact on the emerging artists of Kansas City deserves to be recognized,” Laura writes. “It is a sad time for his closest friends and family. Above all, his message to those of us he represented at The Late Show, is ‘the show must go on.’ It is in that spirit that we open its doors for one of the last times.”

The opening hours are 6 PM - 9 PM on June 2nd.
