Art Exhibits at the Warren County Public Library

warren co pub library1 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (8/12/13) – Alida Akers and daughter, Becca Akers-Kuczek, will exhibit their art in the Porter Café at the Main Library. Alida and Becca are graduates of Western Kentucky University.
 
Though the style of their artwork differs greatly they both are enthusiastic about their work and investigate a wide spectrum of media. Both artists are members of Artworks, Inc
      
Alida has shown her art in numerous venues including a one-woman show at the Garden Center of Greater Cleveland and galleries in Berea, Louisville and Lexington. Her work is collected as far away as France, New Zealand, Holland and Canada. She works in watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic and oils. As an art educator she believes art is not just something you do with your hands, but how one learns to look at the world. She encourages new artists not just to appreciate the end product, but also the creative process.
 
While at WKU, Becca spent a semester in Japan as a Gilman Scholar and Freeman-Asia scholarship recipient. She was able to study Japanese art history and Sumi (traditional Japanese watercolor). While away she was awarded First Place in the professional watercolor division of the US Bank Show. Becca works in pencil, watercolor, charcoal and mixed media.
 
Jarvis Osborne will exhibit her paintings at the Bob Kirby Branch. Jarvis is a Bowling Green based artist and calligrapher who primarily paints landscapes and abstract art. She makes wide use of integrating textures such as the use of fabric, beads and sand in her paintings. Using these mediums, she is able to achieve various dimensions and depths throughout. Ms. Osborne also enjoys working with charcoal, pencil, pastels and ink; whether it be on canvas, paper or any other surface that can be manipulated to accept paint.
      
Caleb Swanson will exhibit his photography at the Bob Kirby Branch.
      
“This is an intriguing collection of arthropod and plant photographs,” says Swanson. “These photographs draw attention into the middle of each macro world and have beautiful shades of green. The magic about macro photography is that you can capture minute details that you don’t usually see with the naked eye, such as the hairs of a fly, a jumping spider’s eyes, and the pollen on an ant’s jaws. These details show the wonder of God’s creation.”
 
Kim Soule will exhibit her art at the Smiths Grove Branch. Kim teaches art at Greenwood High. Kim will show prints and paintings along with painted guitars, boots and records.
