Feminine Desert at Boscos - Oct. 7


Candid Introspection from the Feminine Desert: Paintumentary

Bosco's features art, music for First Friday Art Walk


Bosco’s Urban American Cuisine, located at 435 S. Kansas Avenue, will feature paintings by artist Michelle Leivan in the downstairs dining space for First Friday Art Walk, October 7. Her exhibit will be up until the end of October.  

Leivan received her education at Fort Hays State University. She has been distinguished as the featured visual artist at the Kansas River Valley Art Fair, Topeka Jazz Festival, and the Aaron Douglas Art Fair. Her work has been selected to hang in the Kansas State Capital building and in the U.S. Embassy Resicence of the Ambassador in Asuncion, Paraguay.
 
Leivan’s First Friday exhibit is entitled, “Feminine Desert: Paintumentary.” The series of paintings is based on the perceived dualitymany young women present to the world. Each piece is dominated by abstract female figures. Notably, the use of color creates a striking contrast to the expected outcome in portraiture. The originals and fine art giclee reproductions of the pieces are also available. 

Pianist Scott Senn performs at Bosco’s every Friday from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Senn has been performing for over 30 years and is an accomplished composer and arranger as well.

Bosco’s serves dinner from 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and has a full bar with an extensive martini list and craft beers on tap.

Bosco’s is also open for lunch from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm Monday through Friday both downstairs and at the street level location.
