Fresh Art Friday | Contemporary Urban Folk Art
As part of the Fresh Art Friday series, The Arts Company, in collaboration with the Kentucky Folk Art Center at Morehead State University, will present a special exhibition preview of Contemporary Urban Folk Art From Kentucky: End of the Agrarian Tradition; and a one-night-only art talk featuring well-known singer, songwriter, poet, and avid folk art collector Kevin Gordon (who will also be performing), Kentucky-based urban folk artist Joshua Huettig, and special guest curator Matt Collinsworth, director, Kentucky Folk Art Center at Morehead State University. The event is hosted by Nashville Arts Magazine and moderated by editor Paul Polycarpou.
Contemporary Urban Folk Art From Kentucky: End of the Agrarian Tradition presents the shift from agrarian folk art to contemporary art. While these artists range in age from their thirties to their sixties, they are all of a generation of folk artists in Kentucky, who not only exist on the cutting edge, but define it actively through their work.
