CURRENT EXHIBITION

 

KENTUCKY MASTER:

JIM CANTRELL

A 60 YEAR RETROSPECTIVE THROUGH OCTOBER 18

KENTUCKY MASTER: Jim Cantrell, a 60 year retrospective of the works of one of Kentucky’s leading contemporary artists, is an exhibition of more than 100 paintings dating from the 1960’s to the present.

Renowned as a “master of his craft”, he is prolific in a variety of media including painting in oil and watercolor, printmaking, drawing, and ceramics. The focus of this exhibition is his oil paintings complemented by a selection of watercolors and includes 18 from this museum’s permanent collection. A window on his achievements as a ceramicist is presented in a large body of objets d’art originally created for use as liturgical vessels.

Cantrell has received accolades nationally with dozens of prestigious awards, commissions, solo exhibitions and critical reviews. One of his most recent honors was serving as the official Kentucky Derby Artist in 2018.

A book documents the exhibition and is available in the museum’s gift shoppe for $25. The exhibition is sponsored by Ann Murphy Kincheloe with additional support provided by Greenwell Chisholm Printing Co.

The dramatic growth and development of the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art in its first 40 years has enhanced Owensboro’s quality of life by its contributions to education, economic development and cultural tourism.

In just four decades, it has become recognized as a regional center for the visual arts, and its programming offers excellence in arts and culture of a quality not usually found outside major urban centers. 

The generosity of Owensboro’s corporate, private and public sectors has enabled it to become the second largest art museum in Kentucky and a premiere educational resource for Western Kentucky.

With the continued support of local corporations, philanthropic families and elected officials, the museum will continue building a legacy for future generations.
