This past weekend Daryl Urig was presented the Duveneck Award in the 46th Annual Duveneck Memorial Art Show in Covington Kentucky. Urig’s painting, “Cincinnati View of Ohio River”, 10” x 72”, found its new home with the permanent collection of the Behringer-Crawford Museum, located at 1600 Montague Road, in Devou Park, Covington, Kentucky.
Frank Duveneck is to Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati what T. C. Steele is to Indiana Hoosiers. Urig’s painting T. C. Steele’s Chair was purchased last year by T. C. Steele Boyhood Home Collection, in Waveland, Indiana. Urig said, “Having two paintings safely preserved for future generations in such notable collections and telling painters provided a moment for me to pause and reflect as a painter”.
The Duveneck Award itself goes to a two-dimensional work depicting a historic landmark or scene in the Greater Cincinnati area.
The Behringer-Crawford Museum is located at 1600 Montague Road in Devou Park, Covington, Kentucky whereas T. C. Steele Boyhood Home is located at 110 South Cross Street, Waveland, Indiana.
More of Urig’s paintings can be seen at his Studio and Gallery in Springdale Ohio at Daryl Urig’s Creative Underground, 430 Ray Norrish Drive, just off 275 on Route 4 across from the Springdale Cinemas. Gallery Hours are Thursday from 11 am till 7 pm and by appointment.
