THE ARTISTIC LIFE and WORK of GENEVIEVE FRICKEL
August 7th 5-7 pm
Genevieve Ingram Frickel (1900-1985) was an independent visual artist and remarkable figure in the local art and culture scene of midcentury Wichita. Frickel led the Art Department at the Wichita School of Fine Arts before moving to Tucson, Arizona in 1953, where she exhibited her work and taught portrait and landscape painting. She returned to Wichita in the late 1950s and opened the Genevieve Frickel Art Studio and directed the Index Gallery above the Fairland Café in downtown Wichita. An influential teacher, many of Frickel’s students became professional artists.
This exhibit on view through August of 2021 and is supported by a generous gift from the Lois Kay Walls Foundation.
