Frazier History Museum: The Art of Drifting: the Watercolors of Harlan Hubbard

  • The Frazier History Museum 829 W. Main Street Louisville, KY 40202 (map)

The least-known, but arguably the best, of Harlan Hubbard’s artistic media are his watercolors. Fresh, improvisational, and spontaneous, Hubbard’s watercolors are visual equivalents to the lively, brief descriptions of the natural world found in his journals. Like Hubbard’s observations of the natural world, the watercolors are notable for their immediacy and for the artist’s enthrallment with the sights he encountered in his life along waterways. This will be the largest exhibition of Hubbard watercolors to date. The University Press of Kentucky is scheduled to publish a book on the watercolors in 2020. Opening reception on Sunday, February 24 , 2 - 4 pm.
