Kentucky artist John Ward recently attended Kentucky author Eddie Price's book signing of One Drop -- A Slave! at Winchester's library. John's artwork is featured on the book cover and John was on hand to sign prints of Paddle Wheeler if customers desired to purchase a companion item to Mr. Price's book. Prints are available of Paddle Wheeler.
I am always so appreciative and humbled by people enjoying the art I create. I had the pleasure of meeting Steve and Janet Ramlal, the new owners of the originals Surprise Party and Evening Chase. Thank you for your support and business! Prints are available of both images. Please contact us if interested in purchasing an original.
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.
