The Ashby-Hodge Gallery of American Art in Classic Hall on the campus of Central Methodist University in Fayette presents "A Dream Denied: A Retrospective of the Works of Cornelia Kuemmel (1863-1938)."
The exhibition runs Jan. 27 - May 12 (closed during Spring Break, March 10-18). The Gallery is open Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and by appointment. There is no cost to view the exhibition and tours are available.
Kuemmel, a Glasgow native, showed artistic promise at a very young age. Yet she gave up her hopes of studying in Paris to care for her parents. She remained a reclusive and eccentric artist for the rest of her life.
The second part of the exhibition contains works by Chillicothe native Fred Irvin. Irvin was a noted American illustrator in the 1940s-1950s. With the growing popularity of television in the 1960s -1970s, he used his talent to draw characters and layouts for animation.
Disability parking is available in the west lot; come in the Courtney Entrance.Co-curator for this show is Fr. Jerry Stockman, Glasgow. For information or to schedule a tour, contact Ashby-Hodge Curator Dr. Joe Geist, at 660-248-6304 (office), 660-248-6324 (gallery), or email@example.com.
