Wild Times Ahead!: Wild Woodland Art Show

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Erlanger
Meeting Rooms A & B
Opening reception for Cricket Press's Wild Woodland Art Show. Join us to meet the artist, enjoy snacks, and peruse a series of magical and haunting works of art. Grab some pieces for your valentine before you leave. 
Show runs through March 4th. 

About the Artists:
Brian and Sara Turner have been making art for decades. In 2003, they started Cricket Press from a tiny studio in their home of Lexington, KY. Together they have created their own unique and quirky vision of the world, translating their characteristic illustrations through the hand-printed processes of letterpress and screenprinting. When they’re not ruining their clothes slinging ink on paper, Cricket Press also spends time on numerous design and illustration projects, as well as making various hand-printed goods and handcrafted items. Their work is inspired by a wide variety of sources; books, music, movies, but also the natural landscapes surrounding them in their home state of Kentucky. By reimagining wild places they visit, the environment becomes an important backdrop to the visual language and encourages the viewer to create their own meaning for the piece.
