CALENDARS INDEX

The calendars at Pine Mountain were not published annually, yet there are a remarkable number of calendars that were produced at the School.   During the 1940s the publication of calendars was undertaken by students working in the print shop.  It is this group of calendars that arguably provides the most interesting examples of this genre. The art for most of the late 1930’s and 1940’s calendars was created by John Spelman III who was employed as the art teacher at the School in the late 1930s to the early 1940s.  Spelman’s work reflects his deep affection for the Southern Appalachians and for the architectural forms of the mountain cabin in and around eastern Kentucky.  He provided an outstanding model for the students and helped them to consider their own aesthetic responses to the region and the remarkable charm of the mountain log cabin and the basic principles of design in a two-dimensional format.
