Exhibit Dates   
August 21-December 1, 2018
 

The Kentucky Museum is pleased to host Salient Features: Trees of Old Forests and Woodland Pastures, an exhibit featuring the work of artist Charles Brindley.

Brindley's interest in trees began in the mid 1980s when he stated working directly on site, creating large scale drawings. In addition to other subjects, he has produced over ten highly detailed drawings of trees annually for 25 years. During the same period, the artist completed nearly 500 tree paintings and sketches.

Brindley has been represented by galleries in numerous cities, including Nashville, Memphis, Taos, Washington, DC and New York City. His work appears in public and corporate collections throughout the United States and in private collections internationally. Five touring exhibitions of Brindley’s works have traveled to museums and art centers in the Southeast and Midwest. Charles Brindley’s drawings and paintings depict a variety of symbol-laden subjects, including giant deciduous trees, panoramic landscapes, prehistoric ruins, rock formations, architecture and still lifes. His images are highly representational but contain multi-layered abstract elements.
