EDIT show at Wichita City Arts

Art Westport report
For my only show of the year, it was just like getting back on a bike...the only thing I forgot Friday night was chapstick. I noticed this year I got far fewer obvious questions, like, "You make ALL THIS STUFF? "  More likely, I had conversations with visit...
