Visual arts bring a community to life!

Who We Are

Summit Art encourages artists by providing opportunities for networking, professional development, education, exhibitions, recognition and events.

We aim to inspire and engage our community by advancing an appreciation for the visual arts.

We are SO EXCITED to have been accepted as a participant in the 2024 Parade of Hearts in Kansas City! Our heart is designed by our Juried Artists, Doug Bennett in collaboration with Sharon Wagner. Look for our “heart in progress” on our social media platforms. Proceeds will benefit Summit Art’s mission to support local art and artists.
