‘Currents: Contemporary Artists
 Along The Banks Of The Ohio’

The Ohio River continues to entice contemporary artists. While not the main artery of life it once was, it still fosters awe and beauty — as well as the occasional disgust. Fourteen artists, creating in various media, are showing work inspired by it in “Currents.” The reception is Friday, Jan. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibition is part of “Afloat: An Ohio River Way of Life,” a collaboration that started with the art of Harlan and Anna Hubbard and broadened to include Ohio River history, environment and culture. Some events are opening in January, but the project will run all year. Partners include The Filson Historical Society, Kentucky Waterways Alliance and Asia Institute-Crane House.
