At least we didn't have this weather last week, with Kansas' 150th birthday celebration. Crowds were able to get out last week and celebrate at several events. Events began Jan. 23 with “Fabrication,” which was a reception for Ada Niedenthal’s abstract quilt display at the Mary L. Martin Gallery at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. About 30 people attended, and the artwork is still on display. You can view it through March 9th whenever the Bowlus is open.
