Through my J.D. Gram's poems and Leah Gram's paintings, this show portrays contemporary sporting recreation in Appalachia, with its traditions rooted in times of survival. "These paintings reflect my experiences raising floppy-eared, bawl-mouthed, coon, squirrel, and rabbit hounds and watching as these well-bred animals morph back and forth between skilled hunters and spoiled lovable companions."
