The City of Lee’s Summit invites you to see a display of paintings by Michael Molick on Thursday, Oct. 17, from 5:30 -7 p.m., in the lobby of City Hall, 220 SE Green St., Lee’s Summit. Molick’s distinctive artwork is comprised of vivid images of fluidity, texture and an organic perception of nature.
Originally from Chicago, Molick was a teacher for several years before deciding to focus on pursuing his true artistic passion. While taking several art classes, one of his most influential instructors was Winifred Seibert in Chicago, who encouraged him to expand his talents. When he arrived in Kansas City, he developed his unique technique and interpretation. While his first works included figurative and three-dimensional seascapes, landscapes, florals, and cottage scenes, his work has evolved into using natural elements and creative color schemes of multiple layers to paint abstract images that evoke an eclectic array of emotions.
In 2006, Mr. Molick moved to Kansas City and opened an art gallery. Since coming to the area his paintings have been displayed in numerous locations around the metropolitan area. He’s also been active in the community through his involvement with the Art for Arthritis Foundation working with children with juvenile arthritis and participating in events for the Kansas City Artists Coalition, Good Samaritan, and Spofford House.
View his art and enjoy light hors d’oeuvres. Also wine sampling, compliments of Ciao Bello’s. His artwork will be on display at City Hall during normal business hours from until mid-January 2014.
