"Art, especially art, but also in the written word-books, newspapers; It was somebody's idea and they figured out a way to convey that idea to you over a millennia of time. Leonardo Da Vinci, if you look at one of his paintings: that was one of his ideas. He put it on there and that same thought transferred to you 500 years later. It's the same thing with a book or if you find a newspaper from 1860. Whoever wrote that, their thought traveled through time to you the day you read it or the day you looked at that painting or heard a song or anything," Kim Knight, son of artist Kenneth E. Knight, said of his father's philosophy on art.
All summer, Shelby County residents have the chance to see Kenneth Knight's paintings, his "thoughts," at an exhibit at the Grover Museum.
