Art opening reception: The Hillbilly Kama Sutra by Tom Huck
Having taken over two years to complete, The Hillbilly Kama Sutra is Tom Huck's first portfolio of prints since his 1998. Inspired by artists such as Hogarth, Holbein and Goya, Huck has chosen the timeless theme of sex, albeit with a slight hillbilly twist. The show is part of a long tradition of thematically unified suites in the history of printmaking. Huck, who's best known for his large scale woodcuts, lives in St. Louis, where he runs his own press, Evil Prints. Huck's woodcut prints are included in numerous public and private collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York Public Library and others.
