Tom Deatherage, owner of The Late Show, is the juror for Kansas City Artists Coalition’s 21st Annual Undergraduate College Student Exhibition Juried Competition. The Late Show is a favorite venue for local artists who appreciate Tom's no nonsense approach to showing and selling work. KCAC co-founder, Philomene Bennett says, when she walks into The Late Show she still gets the feeling that she's seeing something new. "I'm really proud I'm part of the art scene," Deatherage says. "And I really am part of it. I realize it, and it makes me feel good. I thought I was just kind of edgy, but I'm part of the scene. I understand how little time I have left and am trying to make the most of it. Because I'm 72, but I'm pushing hard.”

The exhibition is open to currently enrolled undergraduate college students in Missouri and Kansas and who are under 30 years of age.
