Artists Show Off Work At 35th Annual Art Westport

Ben Palosaari

This weekend is the 35th annual Art Westport festival. The show stops traffic and fills the streets of Westport with booths showcasing the work of local artists.

Photographer Tom Manning has been coming to the festival for decades, but he is showing and selling his work at Art Westport for the first time. He says Art Westport is appealing because it’s open exclusively to Kansas City artists.

“The best part of it is the fact that is caters to local artists, which is very attractive. The other shows are more national, and you get a lot of great artists. But this one, like I say, does cater to more regional artists or local artists.”

Art Westport, September 5 - 7, Pennsylvania Avenue at Westport Road, Kansas City, Mo. 816-531-4370.
