2014 Mayor’s Art Club Third Quarter Artists

ChuckEhrsamPhotographyBlack and white with orange leaf by Chuck Erhsam.PADUCAH, Ky. (7/8/14) — The third quarter artwork for the 2014 Mayor’s Art Club currently is on display featuring photography by Chuck Ehrsam and artwork by Stefanie Graves and David Lucht of Cowango Studios.

The public can view the artwork when City Hall is open, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The artwork will be on display through late September.

Photography by artist, educator, and environmentalist Chuck Ehrsam is on display in the Mayor’s office at City Hall for this third quarter. Ehrsam’s photographs explore the beauty of light as it interacts with nature. Ehrsam hikes state and national parks to find those unique moments captured in his photographs. Ehrsam and his wife, Linda, are in the process of compiling a guide book of regional natural places.

In the Mayor’s reception area at City Hall, see the work by Stefanie Graves and her husband, David Lucht, of Cowango Studios located in LowerTown. Graves is a self-taught artist who enjoys the freshness, spontaneity, and fluidity of watercolor. Graves says, “Inspired in equal parts by the ordinary and exotic, my paintings represent my sense of curiosity, wonderment, and awe at the world around me.”

Lucht is a contemporary realist experimental artist who creates his pieces using the wax resist medium of batik painting. Lucht says, “In batik the image and the cloth become a fully integrated thing. There is no surface decoration in batik. The image is established in the fiber of the cloth. To me that is a very powerful idea.”
