The Owen County Art Guild will host a reception on Sunday, July 7, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for local artist Steve Corns. Steve’s work has won many ribbons at the Owen County Fair and is in demand locally. The public is invited to meet Steve and view his artwork at the art guild, located at 199 West Cooper Street in Spencer. Following the reception, Steve’s show will be on display for a month during Guild hours.

Steve’s love of drawing developed when he was a student. He has fond memories of art classes at Owen Valley High School. For the last few months he has been participating in Partners in Painting at the Art Guild, with Barb Bauer. Working mostly in pencil and pastels, he creates portraits of people and animals that seem to spring to life. A western theme dominates most of his work. He enjoys drawing images of Native Americans and cowboys. An avid horseman, he accepted a challenge from his instructor, Barb Bauer, and created a magnificent image of a white stallion. You can almost hear the hoof beats when looking at this piece. His talent and knowledge of nature brings wild creatures to life. The concentration to get the smallest feather on an eagle’s head perfect produces realistic portraits.

Help recognize this talented local man by attending the reception on July 7th.
