Don't miss the second phase of Jason Pollen's two-part show at the Kansas City (Missouri) Public Library's Main Branch.  Unfurled: Thirty Years in Kansas City comes down on January 4, 2015.

Friends and I went on our seasonal holiday outing to get some culture, eat well and shop. The show was a high point in a great day.

The faces looked familiar. The catalog notes his inspiration
in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection
of Fayoum or Fayum funerary portraits of Egyptians.


He also is showing his sketchbooks.

The man mixes media in wonderful fashion.
