Bill Berryman, of Winchester, will Demonstrate Drawing at Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea
Berryman has been drawing all his life, since he was a small child. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Morehead State University and has been involved in art education since 1986, teaching upper-level visual art at the Sayre School in Lexington.
Berryman’s favorite subjects are places and things that he knows and loves best. One of these places is Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill, near Harrodsburg, where he has spent many hours drawing within this historic village.
“I am fascinated by the amazingly simple, functional and beautiful designs created by the Shakers,” he said. “Shaker Village has inspired me to create a series of works in pencil, pen and ink and watercolor – all done directly on site.”
Works by Berryman are regularly available at the center, located just off Interstate 75 at Berea Exit 77. The center’s exhibits, shopping and travel information areas are open daily, year-round, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the cafe open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
The center features works by more than 700 artisans from more than 100 counties across the Commonwealth.
