Join us for a reception for John Woodrow Kelley author of John Woodrow Kelley: Greek Mythology Now, a monograph of his work. December 11th at 6PM
JOHN WOODROW KELLEY is an artist whose entire life’s work is devoted to creating a contemporary interpretation of the classical tradition in western civilization. This ambition is expressed through a series of paintings inspired by Greek mythology, as well as a study of the uniqueness of the human individual through the genre of portraiture. Mr. Kelley’s attraction to Greek mythology is born of the belief that it embodies everything that is timeless about the human experience, and therefore is worthy of an interpretation expressing our own age.

Color photographs and maps accompany the descriptions of the recommended hikes. A forward by former Knoxville Mayor Victor Ashe and a history of area greenways by Will Skelton are also featured in the book.
