Professor Russell Weedman's Art Now on Display

 


Williamsburg, Ky. - Williamsburg artist and University of the Cumberlands professor Russell Weedman's work is now on display. Recent Works can be seen in Cumberland's J.M. Boswell Art Gallery located in the Andersen Building, room 200. The exhibit will run from January 11 until February 10. Opening reception is at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 17, in the Boswell Art Gallery, and the artist's lecture is to follow at 6 p.m.

The exhibit is a selection of works from the past four years including large scale triptychs and small paintings. Nature is a powerful presence in Weedman's work, a balance of mesmerizing beauty and terrible danger, seething, boiling and sublime. Weedman has exhibited his works extensively within the state and southeast region over the past fifteen years. He was the recipient of the coveted Al Smith Fellowship from the Kentucky Arts Council in 1996 and a KAC Professional Assistance Grant in 1994. His works are held in several public and private collections.
