Here is a commission piece I completed for a neighbor of ours in Paducah. I’ve lived a few blocks away from this building for 12 years. It took doing this commission to truly appreciate its stately form. “The Madison” will soon be hanging on the wall of the first floor landing in this building. I’m always available for commissions of Paducah architecture. Contact me!
Last month Stefanie conducted an intro to watercolor two-day workshop at Ephemera Paducah. It was a great experience, guiding eight students interested in learning how to control this challenging media. The workshop was all about learning technique, from mastering wet-on-wet, application of salt for special effects, dry brush, and the use of masking fluid, each student came away with new tools for moving ahead.
Interested in learning about watercolor from scratch? Send Stefanie an email to sign up for her next workshop! Coming spring 2019.
The artists of Cowango (that would be Stefanie and David) just got back from a three week journey to various spots in Northern Europe. Paris, Vevey, Bacharach, Groningen, Amsterdam and Iceland… all filled us with adventures and inspiration for the months to come.
Our full account can be found on our blog posts. Stefanie has posted about Vevey, Switzerland here on her personal blog “Accidental Truths” and David has posted about Paris, Bacharach and the Rhine Valley and Amsterdam on the Cowango Blog.
And the museums!. For us, the Holbiens at the Lourve in Paris and the Vermeers at Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam were absolute highlights that spoke to us again of the power of painting. We became re-engaged with our lives as artists through these wonders of the visual arts.
So much else inspired us; the landscapes, the cities, the people. We hope you all get a chance to travel. It truly re-animates your world!
David Lucht is showing a large group of his work in exhibition at the 1857 Hotel in downtown Paducah, Kentucky. The work is both a retrospective representing nearly thirty years of his work in batik and a glimpse of his new series on Paducah architecture: “Paducah Straight On”.
The opening event on August 9th, 2018 was a great evening of art, food and friends.
The show is a two-person exhibition combined with another Padcuah artist Philip McCabe who has worked for years in photography and is now doing work in acrylics.
The show is open to the public and is available for viewing through October, 2018.
