Midday at the Gallery Program – Featuring Willie Rascoe

Join the Hopkinsville Art Guild for Midday at the Gallery!

This month Willie Rascoe, a folk art sculptor, will share the process he uses to develop his artwork. He continues to create his sculptures from the driftwood, metal, bone, and shell he collects along the lakes and woods of Western Kentucky. He bases his work on the shape and textures of the wood. Sculptures emerge as animals, masks or abstract forms, with a blurring of lines between human, animal, plant, and spirit. Bits of bone, animal hides, shell fragments, copper wire, and stain made from berries and sawdust finish the pieces. Rascoe is well known throughout Kentucky for his work in schools and as an arts educator. His pieces are in the permanent collection of the Kentucky Folk Art Center and the Kentucky History Center as well as private collections.

The public is invited to this free program and a light lunch will be provided.

Book Signing with Steve Gorman

Steve Gorman of the The Black Crowes will be at Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library to sign and sell copies of his memoir “Hard to Handle: The Life and Death of The Black Crowes.” This memoir is the first account of the band’s story.

Below is the publisher’s press release about Gorman’s fascinating book:
“With hits like “Hard to Handle,” “She Talks to Angels,” and “Remedy,” The Black Crowes topped the charts and reigned supreme over the radio waves for more than two decades. They were on the cover of Rolling Stone, MTV played their videos 24/7, and Generation X re-discovered the power of classic rock and blues by digging into multi-platinum classics like Shake Your Money Maker and The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion.

However, stardom proved fleeting for The Black Crowes, and their success slowly dwindled as the band members got caught up in the rock star world and lost sight of their musical ambition. Despite the drinking, drugs, and incessant fighting between Chris and Rich Robinson (two of the angriest brothers in rock and roll), the band continued to tour. On any given night, they could be the best band you ever saw—or the most combative. Then, one last rift in 2013 proved too insurmountable to overcome. After that, the Black Crowes would fly no more.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Steve Gorman is a founding member of The Black Crowes as well as his current band, Trigger Hippy. He has created and hosted two nationally syndicated radio shows. Hard to Handle is his first book. He lives in Nashville with his wife and two kids. Steven Hyden is the author of Your Favorite Band Is Killing Me and Twilight of the Gods. His work has also appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Washington Post, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Grantland, The. A.V. Club, Uproxx, and The Ringer.”
