Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
Tea Time, a showcase of new ‘zines, opens Friday, January 31, 6-9pm at Paragraph Gallery as part of Charlotte Street Foundation’s Studio Residency Program ¶ Series.
Created by Rodolfo Marron III, Tea Time is a small zine publisher that supports and contributes to Kansas City’s growing zine community by reaching out, connecting and publishing work by local artists. Tea Time aims to encapsulate and disseminate artistic essence in the form of handmade magazines, booklets or mini comics, and to allow artists to present certain aspects of their studio and creative practices that they may not normally be able to show in a gallery setting. Doodles from sketchbooks, photographs used as references, and installation shots are featured within these publications.
This first Tea Time exhibition will showcase and celebrate the release of newly printed pieces by Charlotte Street Studio Residents Carolina Aranibar, Eric Dobbins and Madeline Gallucci as well as Luke Rocha, Dustin Williams, and others.
