Sponsored by Western Kentucky University, the Mountain Workshops held their 43rd annual workshop in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky during the week of Oct. 22, 2018. In addition to the students participating in the program, WKU faculty members were joined by volunteer shooting, editing, and writing coaches who traveled from across the country to participate in the program.
John Ward was selected to be one of the "stories" for the workshop and worked with photojournalist Alexander Volberding. It was an exciting and interesting process to have John's life documented in photos including capturing John's life at work and home.

John Ward partnered with Eddie Price, Kentucky author, to illustrate the cover of Mr. Price's new release titled "One Drop -- A Slave!", released in February 2018. The book is a sequel to Mr. Price's popular book, "Widder's Landing". Over Labor Day weekend, Eddie and John attended the Pioneer Festival in Winchester, Kentucky where those purchasing Mr. Price's book had the rare opportunity to have both the author (Eddie) and illustrator (John) sign their copies.
John's painting titled "Buggy Ride" was accepted into the 2014 American Academy of Equine Art fall exhibition. The AAEA is a highly selected national juried exhibition. He has been offered an Associate Membership with this prestigious group!
John Ward attended Talon Winery's release of their new Equestrian Series Kentucky Red Table Wine. John's image, "Mother's Love", was used for the new wine series bottle label.
John was on-site at Talon Winery's unveiling event to sign the bottles along with Wine Maker, Kerry Joliffe.
