Kentucky Wesleyan hosts “ART FOREVER” exhibit

The Ralph Gallery of Fine Arts at Kentucky Wesleyan College will feature “ART FOREVER” by local artist and art educator Brian Murphy Aug. 12-Sept. 3. The Ralph Center is located at South Griffith Ave. and College Dr. The exhibit will feature a variety of artworks focusing on enlightenment of the community through sharing of visual stories. Murphy will offer a “Meet The Artist” as he works on his art at the gallery on Aug. 21 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Masks are required for all gallery visitors and “Meet the Artist” attendees with a distance of three feet requested. Gallery visits are free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Brian Murphy shared this statement:

“Art begins with an idea. A thought. A feeling. A memory.

Take something you are passionate about. Continue to listen and observe. Grow by both learning from others who might share your ideas as well as those who might have a different point of view.

“The work you see in this exhibit is full of exploration; ideas that comment on our culture and world, both blending the past with images from pop culture, children’s literature, comics, music and repurposed materials to communicate a message, all set to a soundtrack that exists inside the mind of the artist.

“Make art. Buy art. Support artists. Share your story. Use the world to inspire you.”
