Rachalle Gardner-Roe
The project is called Femin • Is and the visual component consists of portraits derived from a series of interviews that Gardner-Roe continues to publish on the KC Art Pie podcast. Each participant collaborated to create their portrait by selecting a text of personal or historical significance. Through writing, Gardner-Roe used the submitted poetry, essays, mantras, and more to create imagery reflecting portraiture conceived not of photographic likeness, but rather, an expression of identity through values and ideas.

This process allowed the Gardner-Roe to further learn, beyond the direct interviews, what inspired and influenced the women who came before her as well as those working alongside her. The goal is to present a body of work that dives beyond the superficial and aspires to this: May we be defined by that which we hold dear and hold to be true.

Portraits of individuals include: Philomene Bennett, Shea Gordon, Cyncha Jeansonne, Elisabeth Kirsch, Janet Kuemmerlein, Jennifer Lapke Pfeifer – Rightfully Sewn, Ke-Sook Lee, Linda Lighton, Paula Rose, Rosy’s Bar & Grill – Joyce Downing, Linda Kay Davis, Carol Smith, Tamara Severns, The Wild Women of Kansas City – Geneva Price, Millie Edwards Nottingham, Lori Tucker, and Gloria Vando Hickok

Rachelle Gardner-Roe is a local artist who see all her work as works in lace – literally, abstractly or sculpturally. As a medium that can reference history, sensuality, or domestic kitsch, the essence of lace lay in the connections of countless individual threads coming to create interdependent networks shaping endless possibilities of pattern.

Filmmakers have been trying for years to adapt the political thrillers by the late author Vince Flynn. His CIA super agent Mitch Rapp finally makes his big screen appearance in “American Assassin,” a noisy thriller that introduces us to Rapp in hopes of creating a new franchise.


Actor Dylan O’Brian, best known for the “Maze Runners” movies, plays Rapp, a young man who seeks revenge on terrorists who gunned down his girlfriend. He becomes a black ops recruit and goes into training with no-nonsense agent Stan Hurley, played by Michael Keaton. The training is cut short when a former CIA agent called “Ghost,” played by Taylor Kitsch, helps some rogue Iranians steal a nuclear weapon.


The movie has plenty of action and manages to rev up the audience with its violent revenge tale, but there are leaps of logic in the script that was written by committee, eroding the story’s credibility and dulling its impact. Still, “American Assassin” is lively enough to please most action fans.


Just when you thought every story about Nazi Germany had been told, along comes “13 Minutes.”  Christian Friedel stars as Georg Elser, a German carpenter who, in November of 1939, created a time bomb all on his own that missed killing Hitler by a mere thirteen minutes. While the movie may not quite achieve the emotional resonance it was working for, it’s a fascinating account of a little-known piece of WWII history.


Also potentially opening this week, “All I See is You” is a Marc Forster drama about a blind woman, played by Blake Lively, who suddenly regains her sight and discovers things that put a strain on her marriage. And “mother!” is a hallucinatory psychological thriller from filmmaker Darren Aronofsky starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem and Michelle Pfeiffer. Lawrence plays a woman whose marriage is disrupted when unwanted strangers arrive on the scene.

Susan and Russ focus on a “Crown Heights,” a true story about a miscarriage of justice that gained attention through an episode of the NPR show, “This American Life.” LaKeith Stanfield plays a man wrongly convicted of murder. His friends work tirelessly for years to free him and clear his name.
