​​​​​​JOE DOWNING
Homecoming: Ménerbes to Bowling Green
The Ellis Walker Gallery is honored to present Joe’s Homecoming show, featuring works from the personal collection of Joe Downing and Emmanuel Wardi from Ménerbes, France.​​​​​​
Join us for the silent auction on:
Friday, Sept 30, 5–8pm
Saturday, Oct 1, 12–4pm
Sunday, Oct 2, 2–6pm (closing bids)
Receptions will take place on the Friday and Sunday of the auction.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
The exhibition is now available to view during regular gallery hours.
Below is a preview of all the works that will be part of the auction, and details
about each work are listed in the following exhibition catalogue.
A special thanks to Dominique Bowen, of Ménerbes, France. Without her, the Joe Downing and Emmanuel Wardi art would have never made the long journey from France to Kentucky, and this show would not have been possible. 

All proceeds from the Joe Downing collection will go to the
Joe Downing Art Scholarship Fund at Western Kentucky University.
