River Currents 2.0: Works by Carole Estepp, Charlie Haskins, and Kevin Lyles

November 18, 2016 to January 14, 2017

This annual exhibition brings together artists that are currently living and working in the Ohio River region. The unique landscape, Appalachian influences, climate, and pace of life contribute to the forming of the creative voices of the region.

These three artists, working in diverse media, have developed their own distinct, creative response to the Appalachian environment.

Carol Estepp

Commonly working with animal imagery, each has a unique perspective. For Estepp, it is through the traditional hooked rug method that she executes her graphic designs, the animals she lives with, interacts with, and reflects upon on a daily basis.

 

 

Charles Haskins

Charlie Haskins

Haskins’ canvases are illustrative in quality, with loose, varied brush strokes tying together representations of animals and local landscapes. They are dynamic and compelling, yet playful and whimsical.

Kevin Lyles

Lyles work is as much about material exploration as it is about imagery. Explorations in ceramic, metal, glass, paper and often the combination of these media focus on the animal world in a spirited, energetic presentation.

 

 

We intend for this exhibition to give you, the viewer, a deeper appreciation of the Appalachian landscape, the vistas, the animals, and the creative artists and craftspeople in the region.
