John Parker Painting featured artwork for the National Underground Conference

Last night, I was at the press conference and reception for the National Underground Conference, this year, it will be held in Clermont County this June.

I am pleased to announce that my painting of John Parker is being used to promote the event.  It will be used for the invitations, brochure, website, thank you notes, etc.

You can read a little more about the announcement here:

I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures, but hopefully, you can see the art on the banner at the press conference/reception.  (and a large print on an easel further in the room!)

I won’t name drop, but at the reception, I met some very interesting and inspirational people, and learned that Eliza Harris was a real person who escaped from a farm in Dover, Kentucky.  Her story is well documented (in more than just ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’)  She actually crossed the river 3 times to rescue her children.
