About the Artist

Lawrence C. Faulkner is known as Creative Inkwell, an up and coming Toledo artist on the grind, painting throughout his hometown as well as surrounding areas whether it be art shows, murals or special events. This self-taught artist is becoming a positive talk around town. He uses canvases, wood, clothes or any solid surface to paint and show his imagination and reality.

On “The Process”

My vision for the Arts is as free as the word itself. The name Creative Inkwell expresses exactly the desire and vision I give, a vessel of imagination. Whatever I put my hands on will be creative without any rules or limitations, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made and I shall create as such.

About the Artist

Born and raised in Appalachia, his personal exposure to the arts has been lifelong and generational. The son of a talented musician, the singer himself had his creativity rekindled when his daughter showed an interest in theatre. He enrolled in college at 43 and earned a Bachelor’s in Arts Communications from Ohio University in 2017. Exploring the artistic side of digital photography, he specializes in environmental portraiture and theatrical events, and dabbles in mixed media. He is also the author of short plays, and a pocket book aimed to help arts and performing arts students find their college fit.

About Something in the Water

Water. Restful. Powerful. Cleansing. Transformative. Something In The Water is a photographic exhibition of environmental portraits focused on the people in the waterways of Appalachia. Water is a medium that is constantly changing, moving and shifting, even when it appears stagnant. Deep within yourself, you feel that growth, that change, that cleansing, that power. Join us, and allow the currents to refocus your energy and realign your emotions.

About the Walter E. Terhune Gallery

The 1,300-square foot Gallery is part of the Center for Fine and Performing Arts. It is committed to exhibiting diverse, vibrant visual arts created by faculty, students and community members, and to embedding arts programming within the curriculum. Exhibits at the Gallery — both in the main exhibit space and along the outside wall — have spanned a wide range of media and styles, from traditional art to interactive, multi-media installations.

The Gallery is named on behalf of the Walter E. Terhune, following a donation in 2003 to the Owens Community College Foundation from KeyBank’s Terhune Memorial Fund. Established in 1926, the Walter E. Terhune Memorial Fund was created by Mr. Terhune’s daughter, Alice Crosby Terhune, to honor her father who was a longtime Toledo businessman and philanthropist. Mr. Terhune was an owner and officer of Clark and Terhune Lumber Merchants, a successful lumber company in the 1800s.
