ZECK Featuring Suzi Zimmerer, Juli Edberg, Nancy Currier, and Keith Kleespies
Pyro Gallery Show dates: August 1 - September 7, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday August 2, 6-9 p.m. Gallery Talk: Sunday August 4, 1 p.m.

Suzi Zimmerer:  Not many of us are old enough to recall the name of Marian Etz, the actress and singer who, hailed for her exotic looks, played the boards of Eastern Europe in the 1930’s. Unfortunately for us, very few notices, programs, or photos survive. Marian is celebrated here in four of her most loved performances.

Please also enjoy four drawings made from the Museum of Imaginary Ethnography.

Juli Edberg: I am attracted to the peculiar, the geometric, the humorous, and words. The shape idea comes first. Then I create inkjet-printed paper that looks wonderful when cut up and glued onto cardboard tiles. Then these tiles are tied together.  A sculpture is formed. Like a PUZZLE! Graphic design and fashion design are combined. My airiness becomes solid.

Nancy Currier:  My past year’s adventure in art started with one happy little family of pieces who got wanderlust and began to roam about. They ventured into foreign territories and saw exciting new things - in color, in size, in material. “We like these,” they said. And decided to bring it all home with them. There the newcomers quickly settled in and became part of the family until, weeks later, they too got wanderlust and set off. It became a repeating cycle, and that’s how the happy little family kept growing. You can meet them.

Keith Kleespies: The expressionist power of East European puppet films has long intrigued and inspired me. Back in the days when there was film, I made numerous live action and animated puppet films and thought it was time to return to them. As there is no film to shoot now, I am presenting the work as an installation. The narrative is based loosely on the life of the Polish artist, Andrzej Kuhn [1929-2014].

The Hadley Prize will allow Chaubal and Silverman to travel to Egypt with the local teenager featured in Pinball, where they will document the teen’s first return visit to the place he identified as home before coming to America 10 years ago.

Ewing Fahey graduated from the University of Louisville in 1942 with a double major in Fine Arts (painting and drawing) and Art History. During her senior year that Fahey became the editor of the University’s Cardinal newspaper, the first woman to hold that position. That journalistic experience led to her being hired as the first female reporter for WAVE Radio (television was still a few years in the future). She also taught art at the Louisville Girl’s School. In 1946 Fahey took off for New York City to work as a copywriter for McCalls Pattern Sales and later became an Art Director for Norcross Greeting Cards. When Fahey returned to Louisville, in 1953, it was to become the first female Advertising Manager at Louisville Magazine, and within two years she had become editor. She was still in her early 30’s.  

In 1998, she helped form ENID, a collective of women sculptors named in honor of celebrated Louisville sculptor Enid Yandell (1869-1924), who studied in Paris with Auguste Rodin and Frederich MacMonnies and was only the second female to be inducted into the National Sculpture Society.

Caren Cunnignham international artist and educator has work in numerous private collections on five continents. She has held 27 solo exhibitions in the U.S., China, Finland, Kenya, and Peru, as well as over 60 group exhibitions in the U.S., Tanzania, and Germany. Articles have been written about her work in English, Finnish, Hebrew, Mandarin, Spanish, German, and Swahili. She has over twenty-five years of teaching experience from three different continents. She is a Professor of Art and Director of the Arts Administration Department at Bellarmine University. She has served on the boards of the Louisville Visual Art, the Kentucky Foundation for Women, and Exceptional Equitation.

Emily Schuhmann, a Louisville Kentucky native, received her BFA from Ball State University in Metalsmithing and later her MFA in Metalsmithing/Jewelry Design from Texas Tech University along with a secondary in painting and a graduate certificate in contemporary art history. She has participated in numerous local, regional, national, international shows since 2002. Currently she is living and working in Louisville where she has served as an instructor for a wide variety of art programs including Bellarmine University, U of L, and Indiana University Southeast. When she isn’t in her studio, Emily is a swing dance and vintage style enthusiast.

Gloria Wachtel studied Art History & Sculpture at the University of Louisville and an MA from the University of Cincinnati. She is a mixed media sculptor currently exploring deconstruction and reductive techniques repurposing her own work.
