   The exhibition will open with an artist talk at 6:30 p.m. and a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 2, in the gallery, located between Van Ackeren and Sedgwick halls on the university campus, 1100 Rockhurst Road, Kansas City, Mo. Darkness with Blue Sky will be on view through April 7 during regular gallery hours, noon to 5 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

   Born in Strasbourg, France, and a graduate of les Arts Decoratifs de Strasbourg, Mechita's drawings, paintings and sculptures have appeared in galleries across dozens of cities, including Los Angeles, London, Paris and Berlin. Most recently, Mechita's work was featured in the GNYP Gallery in Berlin as part of the Body of Pain, Body of Love, Body of Wisdom exhibition. Currently, Mechita divides her working hours between Berlin and Paris, while also lecturing at the Caen Art School in Normandy.
