Northwest Kansas City Center to host art exhibit featuring painter
The Northwest Missouri State University Kansas City Center is hosting an art exhibit, featuring the work of artist Eileen D’Angelo-McCoy, Monday, April 23, through Thursday, May 24.
The exhibit can be viewed between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday at the Northwest Kansas City Center, located at 8 Victory Lane in Liberty.
D’Angelo-McCoy is a Kansas City, Mo., based freelance artist whose award-winning paintings have been featured in magazines, publications and collections both nationally and abroad. She has exhibited work at the Springfield Art Museum in Springfield and the Irene B. French Gallery in Merriam, Kan., as well as Kansas City’s Crown Center, the Buttonwood Gallery and The Kansas City Club.
“Sketching and painting have always been a part of my daily routine,” D’Angelo-McCoy said. “When I am asked about how to improve as an artist, my answer is through daily practice.”
She began a daily painting blog in 2010 as an extension of her work.
“Though I have always drawn and painted regularly, I lacked a concrete plan,” she said. “The daily small paintings have been instrumental in achieving my goals. Having a plan has given direction to my art. I am able to de-stress, unwind and have measurable improvement to show for my time.”
D’Angelo-McCoy resides in Kansas City with her husband, David, and three children, Katie, Mason and Lincoln. A graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia, she worked as a production artist for Hallmark Cards, a display artist for Macy’s, and she continues to work as a freelance artist. She also draws speedy caricature art likenesses at corporate and private events and creates paintings and drawings for client commissions.
