Paintings at the Creative Harvest exhibit, Hopewell Museum

One of the many nice things about living in Paris, Kentucky is that for a small town it has an impressive museum of local history and local art. The Hopewell Museum is in a beautifully redone 1910 Post Office building on Pleasant Street. They are currently featuring their Creative Harvest Exhibit done in partnership with Stoner Creek Arts featuring current work by local artists. I have two paintings in this exhibit, The Angel's Serenade and My Heart Cries Aloud For Thee.

The exhibit runs up to the end of December. The opening reception information is posted below. The Hopewell Museum is run entirely by volunteers and to quote from their mission statement--

The mission of Hopewell Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret the historic and
artistic heritage of the Paris and Bourbon County region and to promote the educational,
historic, artistic and cultural growth of the community.
