Jacob Heustis' “Beasts Will Be Still There” opens September 20 at John Brooks' Quappi Projects space. Both were here in the studio Thursday morning, and Peter Morrin joined us in the 2nd half to talk about the Afloat cruise. Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM, or stream on Artxfm.com each Thursday at 10am to LVA' Artebella On the Radio to hear artists talk about their work.

Opened by artist John Brooks in 2017, Quappi Projects is a Louisville-based art gallery featuring contemporary artists whose works are reflective of the zeitgeist. “Because we believe the highest function of art is to allow human beings to know ourselves more deeply, we are interested in exhibiting challenging, even discomforting, work as a way to explore and understand the mysteries of the human experience.”

Heustis_Headshot.jpg

Jacob Heustis uses painting, drawing, and installation to question and explore value and class systems, vanity and desire and the nature of art and aesthetics within the context of contemporary society. Heustis’ large-scale works consist of a minimal but expressive application of medium and materials often combined with self-referential phrases and appropriated pop-culture lexicon in the form of hand written text.

Since 2004 he has exhibited at Swanson Contemporary, the Green Building Gallery, Land of Tomorrow, Zephyr Gallery, Actor’s Theatre, Brown Theatre, Kentucky School of Art, Hite Art Institute, The Speed Art Museum, Cressman Center for Visual Arts, Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, and 21C Bentonville, Durham, and Cincinnati.

Jacob Heustis’ “Beasts Will Be Still There” will have an opening reception Friday, September 20, 5-9pm, Quappi projects, 827 West Market Street, Louisville

Peter Morrin was the Director of the Center for Arts and Culture Partnerships at UofL from 2010 until his retirement in 2016. Mr. Morrin also taught in the Department of Fine Arts, especially in courses serving the Critical and Curatorial Studies track in the Master’s Degree program, and before that he was the Director of the J.B. Speed Museum. He is now co-founder with John Begley of Afloat.

On September 22nd, join AFLOAT on the Belle of Louisville for a cruise with a variety of scholars, artists and performers who can tell about every aspect of Ohio River life and natural history.

69894526_10156246444666831_2955664216704417792_n.jpg

Whitney and Waller Austin were on the show this week talking about the upcoming WhitneyStrong Foundation event and how making art can play a role in addressing gun violence. Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM, or stream on Artxfm.com Thursday at 10am to hear artists talk about their work and social acvtivism on LVA's Artebella On The Radio with Keith Waits.

Waller Austin is an interdisciplinary artist who relies heavily on humor to engage viewers with a myriad of subversive themes, juxtaposing the authentic with the apocryphal. The reactionary nature of his work has compelled him to explore concepts of originality and memisis, post-colonial colloquialisms, and mythologized identities of self and the other.

Austin studied painting and art history at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned a Master of Fine Art degree from Sam Fox School of Art and Architecture at Washington University in St. Louis. Austin currently lives in Louisville, Kentucky with his wife, Whitney and their two children, where he is an adjunct art instructor at Jefferson Community and Technical College.

Austin had prepared a silly art exhibition to open at the Tim Faulkner Gallery on September 21st, but after his wife survived being shot 12 times as she walked into work in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 6th, Waller was moved to create a much different installation in response to the incident.

46496046_10217515702342407_8537606308193370112_n.jpg

Whitney Austin is a Louisville native who studied Entrepreneurship and Psychology at the University of Louisville. With her husband Waller she is the founder of Whitney/Strong

“For nearly a year, Whitney/Strong has worked tirelessly to create relationships, both on the local and national stages that will help us on the road to ending gun violence. In celebration of our efforts, we are excited to announce our largest event yet, A Night for Life. It will provide an in-depth overview of the majority-supported solutions we've selected to help end the epidemic of gun violence in our country.”

Flame Run Gallery has co-ordinated an exhibit of works by some of the many assistants of Stephen Powell. Flame Run Director Brook F. White, Jr. is one of them, and he will be in the WXOX studios to talk about the exhibit this Thursday. Tune in to LVA's Artebella On The Radio at 10am on WXOX 97.1 FM, or stream on Artxfm.com.

ms21-300-400x346.jpeg

Brook Forrest White, Jr. is a glass artist and the Director of Flame Run Glass Studio at 815 West Market Street.

A native of Owensboro, Kentucky, Brook grew up playing baseball, soccer and the drums.  He was captain of his high school soccer team and went to Centre College in Danville, Kentucky to continue playing soccer at the collegiate level, where he was a four-year letterman.

Brook was pursuing a government degree when he had to take an art class to fulfill a general requirement at Centre College. That class was Hot Glass I and was taught by internationally renowned glass artist Stephen Rolfe Powell. In the glassblowing studio, Brook found an outlet for his passion, intensity, athleticism and creativity.

Brook went on to work many years for Powell. Those apprenticeship years would prove to be invaluable to Brook as he continued his fascination with hot glass. Brook credits his nearly decade of time spent with Powell as the inspiration he needed to start his own studio.

LEGACY: THE ASSISTANTS OF STEPHEN ROLFE POWELL

SEPTEMBER 6 - OCTOBER 25, 2019

The Godfather of Kentucky glass, Stephen Rolfe Powell, left behind a legacy in the lives he touched.  Among those he strongly influenced, were his assistants over the years. 

Flame Run has co-ordinated an exhibit of works by some of the many assistants, including:  Brook F. White, Jr., Thomas Spake, Nate Watson, Adam Haigh, Matthew Cummings, Jonathan Capps, DH McNabb, Che Rhodes, Paul Nelson, Sam Spees, Patrick Martin & Paul Hugues

Suzi Zimmerer, Juli Edberg, Nancy Currier, & Keith Kleespies together form ZECK, and they are exhibiting at Pyro beginning August 1. This week on LVA's Artebella On The Radio: what the HECK is ZECK. Tune in Thursday at 10am on WXOX 97.1 FM, or stream on Artxfm.com.

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].

Pinball is a feature-length documentary and fictional narrative hybrid about a teenage Iraqi immigrant figuring out his life as he straddles the two worlds and cultures he embodies—the world from which he emigrated and his current life in Louisville.

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.
