Coffee and Cocktails
Sunday, January 26
Wichita Art Museum

Coffee and Cocktails brings together vintage furniture, designer clothes, and elegant decorative arts objects to explore the fashionable worlds of teatime and cocktail hour in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The first part of the exhibition centers on tea and coffee—two hot beverages that went from exotic imports to everyday necessities over the course of the 1800s, inspiring specialized tableware, furniture, and clothing. The second half of the exhibition takes the viewer from day to evening, and features the barware, furniture, and clothing necessary for an elegant night of drinks and conversation.

Coffee and Cocktails draws from the collections of the Wichita Art Museum and the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum.

My Love, My Dream, My 40 Year Journey - Charles Davis Exhibition
Sunday, January 26
The Kansas African American Museum

The Kansas African American Museum showcases the work of Wichita State University alum, artist and retired teacher, Charles Davis in the exhibition, “My Love, My, Dream, My 40-Year Journey.” The contemporary Norman Rockwell knew early he would be an artist. “I often wondered, ‘Who am I? How do I fit in?’” says the artist looking back.

His work, primarily watercolor (gouache) on hot-pressed illustration board reveals his sense of humor, past experiences and imagination from his everyday surroundings. The ever-growing and learning Davis placed his first art show in the late 80s in Ark City, KS. He remembers his work as being “enough to impress.” He featured The Wait, 2 on 2, and Battle of the Sexes. Battle of the Sexes, an acrylic painting, now belongs to the Wichita Art Museum. It won Best of Show-Painting at a Century II Fall Art Show.

The Chicago native who grew up in Ft. Wayne, IA and spent the bulk of his adult life in Wichita. Throughout his career, Davis taught in the Wichita Public Schools teaching art at Hamilton Middle School, Brooks Magnet Middle School and Stucky Middle School.

Museum Hours: Tuesday-Friday 10a-5p; Saturday 12-4p
