Maureen McGovern – Cancelled

Elegantly sophisticated one moment, powerfully gutsy the next and always translucently pitch perfect, Maureen McGovern is a superstar with a lifetime of music that spans Broadway, Grammy nominations and an Oscar-Winning international #1 gold record.

It is with great regret we bring you this unfortunate news: Due to Ms. McGovern’s health her entire 2020-2021 tour has been canceled. Due to this cancellation, all tickets, including series tickets, are eligible for a full refund or you will be credited your tickets to be used in one of our other upcoming performances.

Extreme Graphite – Kim Taggart

EAC is incredibly excited to share with you our current exhibit on display, “Extreme Graphite” by Kim Taggart, in the Trusler Gallery. This show will be on display through Friday, July 31, 2020.

There will be a small, socially-distance,d meet-the artist event on Friday, July 24, from 4pm-6pm.

Kim defines her graphite technique as an emotional saturation of tones. With her Kansas heritage and the fact her last name ends with “art” – it seems only natural that she has come to celebrate the Midwest’s beauty through her work.

Many of the works in this show are available for purchase. If you would like to purchase any of Kim’s pieces please contact Gallery Coordinator, Shayli Gentry, at sgentry@emporiaksarts.org or (620) 343-6473. Prices are listed below each piece.

Two of our kits (Passport and Masters) come with incredible interactive digital content along with physical art projects!

The supplemental digital content includes video tutorials from EAC Staff, educational games, music, recipes, and much more! EAC’s professional staff has done the work to source and compile entertaining and educational digital content to pair with these kits, making sure all supplemental materials are high quality and appropriate for elementary aged kiddos!

Though these kits are recommended for elementary age kiddos, they can be completed by younger kiddos with the help of an adult. Older kids will have a blast experiencing the digital lessons and having the option to dive deeper into each project.
