Through Her Eyes

Sara Grant | Main Hall Gallery

S. Grant is a Midwest based, self-taught, visual artist. Her current medium of choice is color pencil. Throughout her life, she has also enjoyed working with mixed media, clay, and her first love, photography.

Sara has had a lifelong passion for art. In her most recent body of work, she has explored art as a powerful way to communicate feelings and emotions. What can’t always be said is felt. Her intentions behind these works are to make the viewer feel. 

A connection.

William Stofer | City Council Office - City Hall

William Stofer was born and raised in Southern California, but has lived and worked in Kansas for a number of years. As a young artist he was not only influenced by artistic parents but gravitated toward the rock posters and surf and hot-rod culture of the time. 

William has worked in several mediums, but keeps returning to sculpture and air-brushing with enamels and acrylics. Stofer does not consider himself as a particular stylist, but says he just loves to experiment with color, textures and shapes. Stofer’s work has been featured in magazines, internet specialty sites, his specialty painting has been featured at custom car and motorcycle shows around the country. 

Along with his art, William is a sculptor of custom signs for businesses and is a part time art festival creator and founder of Wichita Festival of the Arts​.
