Jessica Kincaid from U of L's Hite Institute joined us on November 9 to talk about the new show she has curated at Zephyr Gallery, Project 20: Failure in Progress, which runs through December 30. One of the artists, Andrew Cozzens, also joined the conversation. Tune in to LVA's Artebella On The Radio every Thursday at 10am on WXOX 97.1 FM/ ARTXFM.com
On the Kentucky Women Artists Directory, the facts of her life begin this way:
Married Lionel F Currier July 2 1949
Attended Chicago School of Fine Art 1945-1947
Louisville School of Art 1952-1962
Taught at Louisville School of Art 1962-1982
For many of us, that last line is the how and why of knowing her. She was not just our teacher, but an example of what a teacher should be: patient, wise, and filled with joy for the making of art - a vital influence for more than one generation of Kentucky artists. She was often the only woman studying art in a classroom of GI’s, and her two triumphant shows in NYC placed her in permanent collections that allow you to find her work online now, forever archived and representative of the best of Kentucky and Louisville.
Visitation will be Wednesday November 8th, from 4 - 8 pm @ Ratterman's in St. Matthews 3711 Lexington Road.

The passing of Charlotte “Toddy” Price saddens everyone in the Louisville Visual Art family. An artist and a philanthropist who supported the LVA mission throughout her life, Charlotte led the capital campaign to renovate the Louisville Water Tower in 1978-79 so the Art Center Association could move in and grow its programming. It was a crucial transition in the history of our organization and we could not have done it without her.
Sculptor Ed Hamilton shared these thoughts with us:
"Dear lord, Charlotte Price was a wonderful person as well as a great artist sculptor.
When I had no work and no paycheck, she put me to work so I could earn money to feed my family.
I will never forget her kindness during those lean times.
And to the family - your mom was the best!
Love you, Charlotte."
Charlotte Price with sculptor Ed Hamilton in 2009:
Our Academy-level Painting II class builds upon instruction from Drawing and Painting I, focusing on the study of portraits and still life utilizing both acrylic and oil paints. The curriculum provides opportunities for experimentation with painting on a variety of different textures and provides further knowledge of a variety of tools, including palette knives and specialty brushes. This course is a comprehensive study of the principals of composition, staging, line, pattern, value, tone, and color theories. Emphasis is placed on the creative process from concept to completed work.

Scenes from Saturday morning CFAC with Miss Annette at Douglass Community Center:
We started our day with drawing experiments, such as contour drawing and turning our pictures upside down to draw, utilizing observation skills. The students then continued with their upside-down drawings and finished them off with pastels and gorgeous color!
