Exhibit to feature Topekan’s works
During June, the Gallery of Rural Art at The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame will feature "Kansas Adventures," an exhibition of paintings by Kansas artist Shirley Akers.
Akers' family raised a small herd of cattle, and she still finds that cattle seek a special place in her heart as the subject matter of her paintings. Her paintings tell a story of her rural surroundings, and she often enjoys a little humor, especially when placing titles on her many bovine acrylic paintings.
Akers is a freelance artist working from her rural Topeka studio.
