The Art Depository presents the black and white photography of Kentucky artists, Harry L Hinkle and Jim Burchette from August 7 through September 13, 2008. An artist’s reception, open to the public, will be held on Friday, August 15 from 4 – 8 pm.
Our next exhibit Black & White, features two Kentucky artists, Harry Hinkle of Lexington and Jim Burchette from Morehead; both work with film and traditional darkroom development and printing. But the similarity ends with the materials.
Harry creates works with great detail and high definition, while Jim burns out all of the back ground to bring a very narrow focus to the image. Harry works traditionally and Jim works experimental. Jim is self taught; he has an image in his mind that he works diligently to get expressed onto the paper while Harry records an image expressed in perfect light. Black and white photographs from two artists that are 108 degrees separate.
The Art Depository presents the pencil work of three local artists, Dana Wolford, Suzanne Erny, and Jennifer Mercer from June 26 through August 2, 2008, with an artist’s reception, open to the public, on July 11 from 4 – 8 pm.
Dana Wolford, a self-taught artist with a passion for faces and color, uses colored pencils and watercolors to capture fleetingness of time and our short sojourn here.
Suzanne Erny has an art degree, but spent her early years raising her family and working in creative endeavors such as clothing design. Her portraits are of Native Americans in traditional dress sprinkled with a few cowboys.
Jennifer Mercer, Suzanne’s daughter, has benefit of her mother’s artistic genes. Mercer’s work is comprised of very tight graphite portraits that are often mistaken for photographs.
The Art Depository presents our third exhibit of art work and fine craft created by local nonprofessional artists. On display from May 22 through June 21, 2008, with an artist’s reception, open to the public, on May 23 from 4 – 8 pm.
