Visual Art

The Center for Rural Development is proud to showcase the talents of professional and aspiring artists in our visual arts gallery.

We also host artist receptions where the community can meet the artist whose work is on display at The Center.

The Center has hosted the work of both amateur and professional artists in the visual arts gallery and is constantly looking for ways to engage young students in the visual arts.

Sheltowee Artisans Art Exhibit

This unique art piece by Sheltowee Artisan Erin Stephens is called “Sundogs.” When the ancient Greeks noticed the atmospheric phenomena of bright spots to the left and right of the sun, they believed Zeus was walking his dogs across the sun.

From oil and watercolor paintings to intricate wood carvings, our newest art exhibit features one-of-a-kind pieces of art from juried members of the Sheltowee Artisans.

Established in 1994, the Sheltowee Artisans started out as a small group of artists and has grown over time to include more than 75 regional artists and craftsmen.

The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and during extended evening and weekend hours when The Center is open to the public. There is no charge to view the exhibit.

For more information or to ask about purchasing pieces of the art on display, call 606-677-6000 or email [email protected].
