PRAIRIE WORKS ART GALLERY
Prairie Works Art
Over 40 years ago, after graduating from Pretty Prairie High School, Liz Shepherd went on to study art. She had a dream to have a place to create art that would be available to share what she knew with others and more importantly, to share the creative space with others who could teach her.
Spring 2018, that dream came to life. Prairie Works Art was opened. A creative space in the new Graber Mercantile & Event Emporium located at 115 W Main Street in Pretty Prairie, KS.
She began a schedule of classes and events at Prairie Works Art. Acrylic pour classes are being taught to individuals, parties and large groups.
Liz has partnered with Kansas watercolor artist Darren Parker who now teaches classes and artist retreats thru the gallery.
In the Gallery, special exhibits created by artists from across the US are being booked.

WHAT WE ENVISION
Bringing Artists Together
Our current show is by Darren Parker of Wichita. Watercolor is his medium of choice and he is known for his historic places and Hometown series paintings.
At Prairie Works Art, we understand the importance of support in an artist’s life. Our goal at Prairie Works Art is to serve as an educational branch and support system for all artists, young and old, who visit our Art Studio by being a special place where their creative juices can flow freely. We’re dedicated to all artists, and we provide them with the appropriate training and tools they need to succeed. It’s our mission to ensure that the arts remain strong, and to offer classes to students of all levels - introducing newcomers to art and creativity, and refining the techniques of even the most veteran artists as we bring instructors from across the country to share their talent.

We can’t all be a modern Picasso, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give Dirty Pour Painting a shot. All of our classes focus on the process, rather than the end result of art. Anyone who loves art, will succeed .Here, we consider that each piece of art created is an honest masterpiece. Call us today to find out more. Spaces are limited, so it’s best to act fast!
