The 18-painting show of Larry's Cumberland River series opened at the Customs House Museum in Clarksville (TN) on May 12. Scenes of the Cumberland River and surrounding landscape range geographically from the Ohio River upstream to Cumberland Falls. The show will be in Clarksville until July 31. The museum is open Tuesday (10-5) through Sunday (1-5). Images may be viewed at http://www.cumberlandriverartist.com/.
Coal Train From Harlan County is Larry's latest painting in the Cumberland River series. Research for the scene took place last fall in eastern Kentucky where coal mining has been a way of life for over a century. Coal trains haul their bituminous load along the Cumberland River where it is too shallow for barges to navigate. This painting and other scenes of the upper Cumberland will appear in future exhibits that are scheduled for later this year.
