Food for Thought
LUNCH & LEARN + AFTER DARK
The Food for Thought program brings an insider's view to visual art to the community. Local artists are invited to present their inspirations and process, and showcase individual work. This popular program offers two monthly events. LUNCH & LEARN takes place four times a year at the Louisville Boat Club, 4200 River Road, Louisville KY 40207. AFTER DARK is a pre-purchase ticketed event scheduled at various locations in the community, and during the evening hours. Thus, you have several opportunities to experience intimate discussions with a local artist and local food/beverage partners.

Martin Rollins is a native of Louisville, who received his BFA from the Louisville School of Art in 1981, and his MFA from the University of Cincinnati in 1987. The major focus of his collegiate fine artwork focused on painting, drawing and fiber media.
As an Artist/Educator, Martin has worked with the Kentucky Arts Council, the Speed Museum, the University of Cincinnati, University of Louisville, Jefferson County Public Schools and Walden School. He has also worked with KET, the KY Department of Education and was a contributor to the Sothern Arts Federation’s Tradition/Innovation traveling exhibition.
Martin Rollins’ artwork uses oil pastels and related media, and focuses primarily on urban and suburban cityscapes and landscapes. The oil pastel medium is a somewhat temperamental medium, and Rollins’ work is noted for its expressive handling of the material and the artist’s mark-making. Rollins employs the medium’s saturated color and range of surface qualities on images of domestic architecture, parks, and open vistas of streets and roads.
