CFAC middle school artists enjoyed doing any style they wanted on their last day of class at the Clifton Center with instructor Liesl:
LVA Academy Painting 2 student artists worked on a final independent project that reflected what they have learned over this semester with instructor Sunny:
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
How can we best sum up the many highlights of even just the second day of Open Studio Weekend? 2017 was even bigger and better than ever, thanks to the more than 100 artists who opened their studios to the public all over Louisville. LVA was thrilled that our partnership with the University of Louisville's Hite Art Institute has been so well-received. We'll see you again on November 3 & 4, 2018!

On the Kentucky Women Artists Directory, the facts of Mary Ann Currier's 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 her work to remain online, forever archived, enabling her rich legacy to live on.
Visitation will be on Wednesday, November 8th, from 4 - 8 pm at Ratterman's Funeral Home in St. Matthews (3711 Lexington Road).
Watch a very worthwhile KET documentary on Mary Ann here.

Academy Drawing & Painting 1 students worked on a Value Study project on a recent Saturday afternoon in our Clifton Center classroom with instructor Leslie!
CFAC 4th & 5th graders (scroll for more photos) at Grant Line Elementary in New Albany, IN, worked on a mixed media piece: paper, pencil, embroidery, sequins... and who knows what else will be added! They loved sewing!
Kindergarteners and first-graders made story quilt blocks inspired by Faith Ringgold at Byck Elementary. They started with painting their own papers for their colorful quilt borders. It was very messy and very fun!
