from these roots: the landscape of south central kentucky

Standing Water, 48x48 inches, oil on panelFrom These Roots: The Landscape of South Central Kentucky features imagery from the land surrounding Bowling Green, KY. Some views are broad fields under a wide summer sky; others are more intimate, like the small market farm of the Howell family, or a late-season view from Sunny Point Gardens. This body of work represents the diversity of the landscape; from the seasonal changes of agriculture to the wilder spaces, skies, and waters that have formed the experience of generations in this region. Works include large-scale oil paintings on panel as well as smaller, more intimate studies. On exhibit November 10 through December 31, 2014 in the Main Gallery at SKyPAC.
