Holiday Observance Schedule

We encourage everyone to spend time with family and friends this holiday season. Tallgrass Studios will be closed according to the listed holiday schedule.

Branding Strategy and Website for Rachel Treanor

Rachel Treanor worked with Tallgrass Studios to develop an identity that best represents her business philosophy. Rachel Treanor’s business offers strategic marketing and business development; the new logo, tagline and brand identity reflects her unique service offerings. Much thought and consideration went into the company name, colors, and brand marks. Tallgrass Studios selected the letters R and T from the founder’s initials to best represent the personal nature of mentorship offered by the company. The T also serves to reference the Teach, Track, Transform platform that is central to Rachel Treanor’s marketing strategy.

Tallgrass Studios designed and applied the new identity to collateral pieces, business cards, and, on May 30, 2017 launched a fully functional website that features customizable page information, news feed blog, and contact form. Visit the website at racheltreanor.com to see the logo and brand in action!

Mostly Naked Women by Jenny Doores

October 13, 2017 | 5-9 pm
at Tallgrass Studios
720 E. 9th Street, #2, Lawrence, KS 66044

Jenny uses bodies to carry the obvious message, but also to convey contradiction: the classic and cartoony, iconic and companionable, sublime and ridiculous. They often become messengers of the moods, myths, and memes between men and women, and yes the women are largely bad-ass.

Book Illustration and Design

Tallgrass Studios’s Director of Art, Shelly Albrecht, designed and illustrated the book cover for Arlene Graber’s newest novel, The “Casting” of Wendy Holcomb. The illustration includes a digital montage created with a landscape of Cape Elizabeth, Maine flowing into New York, NY and Wendy in a spotlight. This is the fourth book in the series and Tallgrass Studios has had the privilege of working with Arlene to create each of the covers.

One-Of-A-Kind Sculptures by Nick Schmiedeler

June 30, 2017 | 6-9 pm

Utilizing salvage and scrap metal yards often, along with city alleys, nature trails, river banks, and other locales, Nick searches out natural, discarded, and reusable materials to create indoor and outdoor sculptures. Nick has been exhibiting and selling sculptures throughout the Midwest for about 20 years. Many of his pieces can be found on his website, nickschmiedeler.com

Music by John Svoboda
A refreshing approach to hearing music played on the guitar. Attractive repertoire that fulfills any listener’s expectation is complimented with Svoboda’s expertise and virtuoso level of performance.
