Notes from the Secret Salon and What to Watch for this Fall

Each year, P&M Artworks presents a Secret Salon featuring Kansas City artists.  "A number of these artists were relative secrets, meaning they were our secret indulgences, our secret delights and we were thrilled to introduce them to our patrons," said Patricia Brown Glenn, the co-owner of P&M Artworks along with her husband, Dr. Mike Pronko.  In addition to being patrons of the arts themselves, Patricia and Mike work to promote local and regional artists across all art mediums through the P&M Artworks Website and through the shows they hold at the Leedy Voulkos Gallery pictured here.
