    I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ball State University. In 2012, I started painting again...life gets in the way of creating art sometimes. Anything you want to do when you retire, you better start now!

    I like big art you can see anywhere in the room. From a distance, the eye can blend colors or see things differently. When you get up close, you can feel like you're in it. I'm happy if there's enough interesting detail that makes your eye move around the piece.

    I like to paint flowers from my wife's gardens. She photographs them so I can paint even on the coldest of days, she's my favorite collaborator! Paintings, artist proof prints, and notecards available, ranging from $6 to $500 during the November 2014 CCPL exhibit. Additional flower paintings can be viewed on Facebook/Kevin Hughey Studio.

Who are the Friends?

The Friends are people just like you who want to support the library financially and/or by volunteering. We raise funds for the library's programs, special equipment and services. We volunteer at the book sales and bookstore. We award an annual scholarship to a high school senior who works or volunteers for the library. The Friends host the Art Wall in the main lobby area. Images from this month's artist can be seen above.

The Friends Mission: A membership organization of dedicated volunteers who serve as library advocates, and who plan and implement fundraising efforts to support library programs, collections and special projects.
