Raymond Papka has had a life-long love of wood, metal and discarded items. He is entirely self-taught in woodcraft, finishes and metalwork, however, his formal training as a research scientist further utilized and expanded his knowledge of photography, layout and technical skills in turn enhancing his sense of creativity, design, structure, imagination and interpretation.

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.
