The Evansville Museum is grateful to exhibition series sponsor M. Susan Hardwick for encouraging the multi-year celebrations of the talents of Skip Steinworth and the four future exhibitors. STILLNESS: DRAWINGS BY SKIP STEINWORTH, on exhibit in the Main Gallery through May 14, includes 31 drawings completed from 1997 – 2017. Steinworth’s artist residency is made possible by grants from the Martha & Merritt deJong Foundation and the Daus Family Foundation in memory of John J. Daus.

Skip Steinworth lives and works in Stillwater, Minnesota, an historic river town on the outskirts of the Twin Cities along the St. Croix River. His interest in art began at a very early age; by his teens he was selling work in local galleries. After earning their college degrees in the early 1970s, he and his wife taught art in Melbourne, Australia. They returned to Minnesota and both began careers as full-time studio artists. Steinworth works exclusively in pencil and his drawings are included in the permanent collections of the Minneapolis Art Institute, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Plains Museum in Moorhead, Minnesota, the University of North Dakota, and Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock as well as in numerous private collections. He is represented by the Jenkin Johnson Galleries in San Francisco and New York and the MA Doran Gallery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

For Brook Forrest White, Jr., the art of glass blowing is magical. His discovery of it while a graduate fellow at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky captured his imagination. White earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Centre in government in 1991, but went on to become the school’s first graduate fellow in art. He continued his studies at the Appalachian Center for Crafts in Smithville, Tennessee. In 2009, he studied with the Australian master glass maker Benjamin Edois.

White’s extensive experience with glass blowing includes apprenticeships with artists Curtis Brock, Stephen Rolfe Powell, Lino Tagliapietra and Marvin Liposky. He founded and operated a glass studio from 1995-2002 before becoming the director of the Louisville, Kentucky studio Glassworks. In 2004, White established his own business, Flame Run Hot Glass Studio & Gallery, in Louisville.

A frequent lecturer and exhibitor at national and regional conferences, including the Glass Art Society, SOFA Chicago, the American Craft Council and Kentucky Arts Council, White has been an adjunct instructor at the University of Louisville. He was a recipient of the Al Smith Artists Fellowship Award from the Kentucky Arts Council and has exhibited work at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, the Huntington (West Virginia) Museum of Art, the Asheville (North Carolina) Museum of Art and the Owensboro (Kentucky) Museum of Fine Art. In 1999, White received the Dorothea Schlechte Merit Award in the Evansville Museum’s 36th Mid-States Craft Exhibition.

The artist writes, “My work is about energy and motion. I want to express vitality. The relationship I build between the coloration, patterning and forms offer a glimpse into the soul of my glass. I desire to capture something elusive, but strive to reveal that realm of pure fire and light.” The exhibition continues through April 30.
