Brooklyn-based, Kansas City-raised painter Ky Anderson exhibits new work at the Dolphin (1600 Liberty, 816-842-4415) with an opening reception from 5 to 10 p.m. Her minimal abstractions often place controlled line work over transluscent washes of background color. With the obvious brush strokes and the guileless appearance of paint drips and small imperfections, her paintings convey an honesty and a kind of intimacy with the viewer.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: July 9. Continues through Sept. 4, 2010
