Pictures from My Retrospective Exhibition at the Butler Institute

I’ve returned from the Butler Institute of American Art and have some pictures from my retrospective to share with you. These photos are from the opening reception for “Kim Novak: An Iconic Vision,” a retrospective exhibition of nearly 100 pieces of my art at the Butler Museum on June 16, 2019. At least half of my works on display also had original poems I had written to accompany them.

The show continues through October 6 at the Butler Trumbull, located at 9350 East Market St., Howland, Ohio. The museum’s hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 11 am to 4 pm.

Many grateful thanks to my very special friend and photojournalist, Linda Solomon, for taking these photos!


Kim Novak Retrospective at Butler Museum

I want to share with you my good fortune at having been gifted a retrospective exhibition of my life’s artwork at BUTLER INSTITUTE OF AMERICAN ART in Ohio—famed for having the finest and largest collection of American impressionist  art.  I am sending almost 100 pieces to be on exhibit during their 100 year anniversary celebration – starting June 16 to October  2019. Wow!  This means so much more to me than any Hollywood award ever could, or ever would!

Needless to say this has consumed most all of my time of late.  I will try to send some pictures from the exhibit.  In the meantime, I’m enclosing a wood sculpted piece that I carved in the 1970s while  living in Carmel on the coast of Central California.  I call it “Gifts From the Sea to Me.”

PS ~ Please know how grateful I am to all of you who take your precious time to give me the gift of appreciation and inspiration. Although I do not respond in written word, know that you touch me to my very core—and keep me reaching out to you through my art!
