  • “Artwork from the Ship of Ophir” by Folk Artist Hattie Duncan

    “Artwork from the Ship of Ophir” by Folk Artist Hattie Duncan

    All day
    08/01-08/26

    121 Sunny Hill Cove, Brownsville TN 38012

    121 Sunny Hill Cove, Brownsville TN 38012

    Hattie Duncan’s folk sculptures are well known throughout the art community. She has been the subject of numerous shows and featured in a “Creative License” segment, a television series on Tennessee artists. Beginning July 5, her works will be on display at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville. “Artwork from the Ship of Ophir” will feature sculptures and wall hangings by the Jackson TN native.

    The public is invited to meet the artist at a special reception in her honor Thursday, July 12, 4-6 p.m., at the Center.

    As a self-taught artist, she began making her own canvas from easily accessible items such as cardboard and paper pulp. Little did she know that the canvas experiments would form the basis of her future sculptures using what she refers to as “paper clay.” Duncan is a master recycler, using egg shells, coffee grounds, pine cones, milk jugs and more to form the base of her colorful characters. Whether her sculptures are fashioned after a family member or someone in the community, there is always a story behind her pieces. Sometimes her work takes on the shape of shadows or other shapes from her imagination.

    The show’s title “Artwork from the Ship of Ophir,” is based on the Bible story of Solomon sending his ships to the Island of Ophir to bring back gold, precious gems, peacocks and other treasures. Like Ophir, Duncan feels her art “is a gift I am meant to share.”

    More than 20 pieces will be on display during the seven-week exhibition that closes August 26. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to the July 12 reception to meet Duncan. For more information, contact the Delta Heritage Center at 731-779-9000.

    Hattie Duncan’s folk sculptures are well known throughout the art community. She has been the subject of numerous shows and featured in a “Creative License” segment, a television series on Tennessee artists. Beginning July 5, her works will be on display at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville. “Artwork from the Ship of Ophir” will feature sculptures and wall hangings by the Jackson TN native.

    The public is invited to meet the artist at a special reception in her honor Thursday, July 12, 4-6 p.m., at the Center.

    As a self-taught artist, she began making her own canvas from easily accessible items such as cardboard and paper pulp. Little did she know that the canvas experiments would form the basis of her future sculptures using what she refers to as “paper clay.” Duncan is a master recycler, using egg shells, coffee grounds, pine cones, milk jugs and more to form the base of her colorful characters. Whether her sculptures are fashioned after a family member or someone in the community, there is always a story behind her pieces. Sometimes her work takes on the shape of shadows or other shapes from her imagination.

    The show’s title “Artwork from the Ship of Ophir,” is based on the Bible story of Solomon sending his ships to the Island of Ophir to bring back gold, precious gems, peacocks and other treasures. Like Ophir, Duncan feels her art “is a gift I am meant to share.”

    More than 20 pieces will be on display during the seven-week exhibition that closes August 26. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to the July 12 reception to meet Duncan. For more information, contact the Delta Heritage Center at 731-779-9000.
