Join us on Friday, April 26th from 7-9PM in the gallery for live music by Matt Hubbard and gallery talks with artists Aaron Kapper, Scott Aasman, and Stephen Procopio, as they share about their artwork in Work & Ink, a collection of biblical illustrations by Scott Aasman, Ned Bustard, Scott Erickson, John Hendrix, Aaron Kapper, Chris Koelle, Kayla Mayer, and Stephen Procopio. Free, all ages, and open to the public.
Scott Aasman is an artist, illustrator and carpenter living and working in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada where he and his wife, Michelle, settled after completing his degree in Art and Theology from Redeemer University. His work is primarily concerned with playing with the ideas, questions, and mystery that arises out of the marriage between those two fields of study. When he’s not being a human jungle gym for their two children or having his nose buried in a sketchbook, Scott enjoys a good western novel, John Prine’s discography, nerding out over Northern Renaissance art, and spending time at his family’s cabin. You can follow him on Instagram @sanillustration.
Since earning his BFA in Illustration in 2012, Aaron Kapper has worked as a freelance illustrator, drawing editorial and conceptual illustrations. Allegory and medieval art, engravings and woodcuts, political cartoons, and good ol’ pen and ink and graphite get him excited about drawing. Most of his completed illustrations are digital works that are finalized after 10-25 thumbnails sketches are made, digitally scanned, and then brought into Photoshop or Illustrator. Aaron is married to a graphic designer named Briana. They have a cat named Luna and they all live in a really old house in Shelby Park, Louisville since summer 2018.

Matt Hubbard, originally a native of Gainesville, GA, has lived in Louisville since 2013. Through his various musical experiences with groups such as Tomberlin, Matt creates sounds and textures supported by gnawing melodies heavily inspired by 80’s retrowave synth music and recent trends such as vaporwave. All of Matt’s music is made in his bedroom and other familiar surroundings. Check out his music here.
