The old and long-closed bank building in Matfield Green, KS now enjoys a surprising new life, as “The Bank”. Not a location to deposit or withdraw money, but an inviting place where locals, travelers and visitors meet and the coffee is always hot and fresh, where contemporary art is on display, and where rare books can be found.

Chiyoko Myose – Shirotaeno-Prairie Journey

April 9 – May 29, 2016

Chiyoko Myose’s work expresses her various perspectives into her search for meaning within the sojourner’s journey.
Chiyoko grew up in Wakayama, Japan but came to Wichita, KS in 1995. “I still feel torn between these two locations. I am experiencing the different perspectives and life expectations of the two places. Not being able to fully choose any, I sense that I am just passing through, like a sojourner. I am consoled by the belief that we are all sojourners on earth. In this show, I am sharing two bodies of work of paintings and an installation A Thread X (Meets) A Thread. The word Shirotaeno is used in classical Japanese poetry in association with words such as white cloth, white sleeve, or white cloud. When I had a photo session of the Thread installation outdoors in Matfield Green before the show, the scene reminded me of this word.” Chiyoko
