5PM: Opening Reception for The Natural View by Brendan Taylor
Brendan Taylor is a rising sophomore attending Eastern High School (EHS). He has always been interested in drawing and painting. He has participated in several groups and activities involving art, beginning with the advanced art classes at Crosby Middle School under the guidance of Mr. Kevin Ashford. As a middle schooler, he was invited to join the CFAC program through the Louisville Visual Art (LVA) Association, and his painting of a beach scene was the People’s Choice Award winner at his eighth grade art show. As a high schooler, he now attends classes at The Academy of LVA, and is grateful to Ms. Wilma Bethel for her creative teaching and helpful feedback. He engages in art club at his high school, and was asked to join the art community at EHS as an upper level art student. He enjoys working with a variety of different media, but mainly focuses on oil pastels, colored pencil, and graphite. His inspirations primarily stem from music, however other artist’s works and nature are also important in his creative process.
