Coutts Museum of Art - Photography Exhibit - "Six Shooters Shoot Kansas"



The Coutts Museum of Art will be exhibiting “Six Shooters Shoot Kansas,” a photography exhibit
showing Kansas through the lens of six of Kansas’ top photographers. The exhibit will run from April
3, 2012 to May 31, 2012, with a reception open to the public on Friday, April 6, from 5:30 pm to 8:30
pm. This reception is also running concurrently with Downtown El Dorado’s “First Friday” Artwalk.
The photographers will be on hand at the reception to meet patrons and discuss their work.

“Six Shooters Shoot Kansas” is an exhibit compiled from works by six prominent Kansas
photographers, with six pieces by each photographer. Included in the exhibit are photographers Michael
Snell of Lawrence, Dave Leiker of Emporia, Mark Feiden of Mission, John Morrison of Wichita, Scott
Bean of Manhattan, and Rod Seel of El Dorado.

“There are some stunning works in this show, portraying all different parts of Kansas,” said Jeremy
Sundgren, president of the Coutts Board of Directors. “These photographers capture Kansas in a way
that many people never see. This is a beautiful state, and this exhibit demonstrates that beauty on many
levels.”

The show includes a three dozen works, from nearly all parts of the state, but also with an emphasis on
our nearby Flint Hills. All of the works are available for purchase, and signed reproductions are also
available during the show.


Says photographer Scott Bean: “We are surrounded by beauty but rarely take time to notice it. If we
aren't careful it is going to be gone before we know it. I can be so attuned to the light and shapes,
texture, and colors when I'm out photographing and feel so alive...only to be lost in the noise of our ever
increasingly complex world when I return after a session of shooting. I hope you can find some time to
get away from the rat race with me and enjoy these photographs.”

The Coutts Museum of Art, located in downtown El Dorado, Kansas is a regional destination art
museum that houses over 1,500 works of art in a historic 1917 building. The collection includes Art of
the American West, contemporary American, European, and regional Kansas art.

USA- This is the heartwarming story of a man and his tutu. For photographer Bob Carey and his wife Linda, a man-sized pink tutu has taken on incredible meaning in their fight against breast cancer. The Tutu Project started in 2003 when Carey donated a picture of himself wearing a custom-made ballet skirt as part of a fund raiser for the Arizona Ballet. The Brooklyn photographer, whose wife is battling a recurrence of the disease, goes out into the world wearing a giant tutu and nothing else on his hairy, un-buff bod. The project has taken him from Italy to Times Square, and he hopes to turn the wacky photos of himself into a book to benefit breast cancer patients. Every time he went on the road, Bob would pack the fluffy tutu. Hilarity ensued. Most New Yorkers who want to raise money to fight breast cancer buy a pink ribbon or sign up for a walk-a-thon. Bob Carey is not most New Yorkers. The overwhelmingly positive reaction to Carey's photos has inspired him to take the project further, making a book of the images entitled Ballerina. The net proceeds will go directly to breast cancer organizations; their goal is to raise $75,000. To support simply visit www.thetutuproject.com.



MEDIA CONTACT

Interested media who wish to schedule an interview with Linda and Bob Carey please forward your requests to contact Workhouse, CEO Adam Nelson via telephone +1 646. 205. 3540 or via email nelson@workhousepr.com for consideration.

THE TUTU PROJECT BY BOB CAREY

The Tutu Project began in 2003 as a lark. I mean, really, think of it. Me photographing myself in a pink tutu, how crazy is that? But nine years ago my wife, Linda, and I moved to the East Coast and, as odd as it may sound it, the self-portraits proved to be a perfect way of expressing myself. Why? Because even though the move was exciting, exhilarating, and inspiring, it was 180 degrees from what I knew. So I took the old, mixed it in with the new, and the kept the tutu handy. Six months after the move, Linda, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She beat it, only to have it recur in 2006. During these past nine years, I’ve been in awe of her power, her beauty, and her spirit. Oddly enough, her cancer has taught us that life is good, dealing with it can be hard, and sometimes the very best thing— no, the only thing we can do to face another day is to laugh at ourselves, and share a laugh with others. Enter Ballerina, the book. Not only is it a collection of my tutu images, it also shares many humorous stories about the adventures of a guy and his pink tulle. So far, there has been a tremendous response to the series of photos—people are particularly moved by the images. And their interest and enthusiasm have made us want to share that experience with as many people as possible in the form of a book, so that we can raise money to help other women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. This autumn, I will self-publish Ballerina. The net proceeds from the sale of the book will go directly to breast cancer organizations, including Cancercare.org and the Beth Israel Department of Integrative Medicine Fund, that make significant differences in the lives of women with breast cancer and in the people who love them. Our goal is to raise $75,000. But we need your help to seed the project so it will take root and grow—and positively affect these families. After years of talking about the project, it’s really happening—and I’m tickled pink.
SPONSORSHIP

Your support has inspired my latest project—one that combines my love for my wife and my willingness to stand out in public in a pink tutu. Here’s how the sponsorship works:


$500
For $500 you will receive a special edition 20-by-24-inch signed print from the Ballerina series, valued at $1,200 along with a first edition of my book. Your sponsorship will make this project possible by helping to cover the costs of self-publishing and distribution. There is no limit to the number of sponsorships you can purchase and sponsors will receive recognition on my Facebook fan page and all other project materials. Visit http://thetutuproject.com/#contribute_content
$100
Personalized Book. Pre-purchase a signed copy of my book, which will ship once it is published. You will receive a personalized and signed copy of Ballerina also included is a 8 x 10 inch print from the Ballerina series not featured in the book. Ballerina will be published in fall, 2012. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and all sorts of fun stuff. But in order to meet my autumn publication date, I need to get started now. So if you choose to be a sponsor, I’d appreciate it if you can commit by May 1, 2012. Visit http://thetutuproject.com/#contribute_content

$30
Other ways you can contribute are by purchasing a T-shirt. This is a stylish fitted t-shirt. Its lightweight, 100% cotton and runs slightly longer than regular shirts.

BOB CAREY
Bob Carey was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and has been making photographs since the age of 17. His passion for creating imagery and his efforts towards self-expression have been two of the driving forces in his life. Carey graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Arizona State University and went on to photograph commercially with an emphasis in advertising. In 1993 he began to explore self-portraiture, manipulating and transforming his face and body into an unrecognizable self. This led to numerous solo Gallery and Museum exhibitions in the United States and Europe. In 2003, after 42 years of living in Phoenix, he and his wife and business partner Linda relocated to Brooklyn, New York to experience life in a different and culturally diverse environment. Carey’s photography continued on the same path of self-examination and transformation and he began to photograph himself dressed as a Ballerina in a pink tutu. The first image was created one day in a vast, desolate landscape during their journey to New York City. After nine years his Ballerina series has grown into a large body of work, including numerous locations from across the United States. Carey describes this project as humorous, playful and introspective, and he hopes to provide viewers an experience similar to that creating the pictures did for him: entertainment and inspiration.

Grandview Park is easily accessed by traveling straight north through town from the main Interstate 29 exit servicing the downtown business district. City busses run to the Park during the festival.

Artist hospitality includes artist dinner party on Friday evening at the Sioux City Art Center, complimentary snacks and refreshments throughout the weekend, booth sitters, and volunteer help with load in and load out.  Overnight security is provided Friday and Saturday night.
