2022 OVAL Presenting Sponsors

Art inspires and sparks creativity in all aspects of life. OVAL is very grateful to the individuals, businesses, corporations, organizations, and foundations that support our mission with generous donations and memberships throughout the year.

The Kentucky Arts Council is the state arts agency and is responsible for developing and promoting support for the arts in Kentucky. Strategically placed in the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, the Kentucky Arts Council is publicly funded by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, an independent agency of the federal government. The mission of the Kentucky Arts Council is to foster environments for the people of Kentucky to value, participate in, and benefit from the arts.

“Art is everywhere – everything we see in life, from the walls of your house, to the design of your car, to the colors and shapes of traffic signs, to the packaging on the products and foods we consume every day. Henderson native and renowned artist Kim Luttrell likes to point out that an artist’s creativity is behind it all.  The visual arts are a celebration of this creative expression. Art is a fundamental component of the human experience, and reflects the world in which we all live, work, and breathe.  At its very essence, visual art is communication. Curt Hamilton Injury Law is very proud to support OVAL and its mission to celebrate the arts in our community.”

“Skinner Design Associates appreciates the importance of the arts in a thriving community. The creation of art, in any form, requires critical thinking. And critical thinking is the one thing that advances society. It fosters thought and discussion that helps us to find common ground. We strongly support OVAL, and their mission, to promote and enhance the arts in our region.”
-Tim Skinner, Skinner Design Associates

“The arts have always played an important part of our lives. Instilling a love for the arts was started with our girls at a very early age. In our travels it is important for us to visit not only the renowned art galleries of a city or region, but also those small community galleries. They tell us a lot about an areas value of individual well-being and its interest in sparking creativity and innovation. Local arts organizations such as OVAL strengthen the health of a community and enrich us culturally and are a catalyst for creative inspiration.” -Dennis & Beth Moran

“Art has the ability to change a person forever, make them see something from a perspective they never imagined, and inspire them to do things they never thought were possible.  A community that promotes the arts is a community that values creativity and supports the creative minds of artists.  With OVAL’s assistance, artistic expression will continue to grow and thrive in our community, benefitting all of the wonderful people that live here.” -Kyle and Jessica Bryant

“We choose to sponsor OVAL because art has always been a significant part of our lives. It is our hope that the Ohio Valley Art League will continue to offer great opportunities for artists, collectors, and the other communities.” – Joseph and Connie McConaughy

Together, in 2022, we can all help the arts continue to thrive in Henderson where a long standing
appreciation for the arts exists. Why? Because art can change, impact and enrich lives, young and old, and can build and improve a community culture where creativity and expression are normal.

We are proud of OVAL’s impressive, comprehensive schedule of exhibits in the various gallery spaces that entertain, engage, educate, inspire and enrich our community. The new, beautifully appointed Gallery 101 is uniquely Henderson and is a delightful treat for art lovers. Together, Henderson championed this hub of art in historical, downtown Henderson which showcases visual art and artists while additionally providing quality, educational opportunities. We are happy to be a patron and contributing donor to OVAL Why?
