Harlan Hubbard: The Rivers Artist exhibit
will include many paintings from private collectors that are rarely
seen by the public. Although the late Hubbard is widely remembered for
his style of living on the fringe of society in Trimble County, Ky.,
he considered his art to be his profession. He and his late wife, Anna,
lived off the land for more than 40 years on the banks of the Ohio River.
They entertained many visitors over the years but relished their seclusion
from the fast-paced world outside of Payne Hollow.
Hubbard also kept journals of his life in the woods and is known as
much for his writings as his art. This exhibit will focus on his art.
The opening reception is planned for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, with
a presentation: Watercolors of the Ohio River Valley by
Flo and Bill Caddell from the Anna and Harlan Hubbard School of Living.
The school is located in Frankfort, Ind. The Caddells knew the Hubbards
while students at Hanover College.
Also, at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, there will be a panel of Reminiscences,
with audience participation encouraged.
Estill Curtis Pennington, Fine Art Consultant and leading expert on
art in the border states and south, will deliver the final presentation
of the series at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18.
I plan to pay particular emphasis on artists who use the river
as a metaphor for ongoing life, Pennington said.
Pennington is also an author of several books on southern art and has
been a curator at numerous museums, including the North Portrait Gallery
in Washington, D.C., and the New Orleans Museum of Art.
The Howard Steamboat Museum and Mansion is located at 1101 E. Market
St., Jeffersonville. The Hubbard exhibit and presentations are free
and open to the public during regular museum hours.
