The 1855 Harris-Kearney House Museum is proud to have previously hosted this talented local artist in 2013. Brad's work was so well-liked that he was asked to do another show in April 2014. His art features classic American scenes in pencil drawings and etchings.
Brad strives to create unique perspectives into the culture, nature, and aesthetics of good ol’ Americana. Beautiful and impressive, his scenes range from high detail “folk realism” graphite pencil drawings and hand printed etchings, to digital photography of distinct American scenes taken while on various trips around our great country. He continues to develop his techniques as he studies the etchings of master artists such as Rembrandt and Albrecht Durer.
This exhibit will be open for viewing from April 1-30, during regular museum hours, Wednesday through Saturday from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Admission to the exhibit is free.

Friday, February 14, the Jesse James Farm and Museum will open an exhibit of love letters from Reverend Robert James to Zerelda Elizabeth Cole. One of the letters was written during the couple’s courtship in 1841, while Robert James was attending Georgetown College. They married and later moved to Clay County in 1845. Their children were Frank, Jesse, and Susan James.
Other letters in the collection were written by Robert James after he left Clay County and headed west to the gold mines of California, to preach to the miners. These letters offer details about his travels and some of the men traveling with the group. They reveal the hardships of travel by wagon train through rough terrain and how illnesses easily overtook the camp. There are also philosophical essays included in the collection. They were written by Robert James as a student at Georgetown College, most likely to be used as sermons.
Admission rates apply. For more information, contact Elizabeth Gilliam Beckett, Superintendent, Historic Sites, (816)736-8502.
