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.
