Duveneck lives! Well, not quite, but the northern Kentucky artist who made an international name for himself more than 100 years ago is remembered at the 43rd Annual Duveneck Memorial Art Show, noon-5 p.m. Sunday at George Rogers Clark Park in Covington. An innovator in his time, Frank Duveneck was also an inspired teacher, here and abroad, who would have been deeply pleased to be remembered by this juried show, with a total of $3,000 in awards.
The Duveneck Award itself goes to a two-dimensional work depicting a historic landmark or scene in the Greater Cincinnati area. Previous Duveneck winners are on display now in the three branches of the Kenton County Public Library. Visitors to the show can vote for their favorite artist for the “People's Choice Award,” enjoy live music and inspect paintings, sculpture, graphics and fine crafts available for purchase.
