JAMES CALCARA ARTIST
Kansas City’s well-known architect helped shape Power & Light District and Valencia Place, but did you know that Calcara has been a long-time artist. He is a true painter’s painter. Whether it’s landscapes, still life or abstract figurative work, he serves up a rich color palette and a subtle sense of humor and playfulness in the studio. Where does he get his amazing color sense? “I credit that to architecture,” he says. As an architect “you learn composition and line and a little sense of drama. That’s where the color comes in.” Find more of his work at InterUrban ArtHouse.
