ERIN & ERIC DODSON, KIOSK GALLERY
Kiosk Gallery is an artist-run space started by husband and wife team Eric & Erin Dodson in September 2012. Our mission is to bring the work of emerging artists to the public, and to provide a space for artists to grow their ideas and elevate the presentation of their work. We aim for inclusiveness and transparency in art and gallery activities – to help encourage participation and the building of community, and to help educate the next generation of artists.
Bios: Eric Dodson is a visual artist, musician, and writer. He studied design at Wichita State University, and spent time in Chicago before settling in Kansas City. Erin Dodson is a photographic artist, and the Assistant Curator of the Hallmark Art Collection. She studied photography at the City College of New York before returning to her hometown of Kansas City. Eric and Erin married in 2012, and in the same year opened Kiosk Gallery.
The exhibition is open to currently enrolled undergraduate college students in Missouri and Kansas and who are under 30 years of age. Students must provide proof of age and enrollment.
