A Dream Denied: A Retrospective of the Works of Cornelia Kuemmel
Cornelia Kuemmel, a Glasgow Native from 1863-1838, showed promise as a talented artist at a young age. She gave up her hopes of studying in Paris, France to care for her parents. She created works of art as a reclusive and eccentric artist for the rest of her life.
A second exhibit contains works by Chillicothe native Fred Irvin. Irvin was a noted American illustrator in the 1940s and 50s and used his talent to draw character and layouts for animation during the growing popularity of television in the 1960s and 70s.
The exhibits are shown at the Ashby-Hodge Gallery Of American Art in Classic Hall at Central Methodist University.
The Gallery is open Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1:30-4:30 pm and by appointment. The exhibits are free to visit. The Gallery will be closed March 10-18.
