Sylvia Maria Gross / KCUR

Shane Evans is from New York State, originally, and moved to Kansas City to work for Hallmark in 1993. He began working for himself about 7 years ago, and just bought a building in midtown, which he's converted into a gallery and studio. Evans opened the Dream Studio to the public on Friday, September 7 and he showed KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross around.By Sylvia Maria Gross


Kansas City, MO – Multi-media artist Shane Evans is incredibly prolific: his work ranges from sketches and paintings, photographs, hand-crafted art books and even bed frames. And that's not to mention the genre that really catapulted his career--children's literature. Evans has illustrated 18 books, including several major award-winners, and exhibits his art internationally.

Evans' Dream Studio is at 711 East 31st Street, between Martini Corner and Troost Avenue. After the September 7 opening, Evans has music, theater and other arts events planned for the rest of the month and beyond.
