Teri Dryden has just returned from Onishi, Japan, where she spent more than five weeks in Residency at The Shiro Oni Studios. On the Thursday October 18 broadcast we had a long discussion about about her adventures there! LVA's Artebella on The Radio lets artists talk about their work every Thursday morning on WXOX 97.1/Artxfm.com.

In this interview, I at one point mention the name of former University of Louisville Ceramics Professor as Tom Owen. This is a careless error on my part, because it was, of course, Tom Marsh who taught for many years at U of L’s Hite Institute and had studied for long periods in Japan. My apologies.

LVA's Artebella On The Radio 10.11.18

images.jpeg

What a time we had! Louisville Ballet director Robert Curran, choreographer/dancer Brandon Ragland, and artist Vinhay Keo came in to discuss the Mozart Divertimento collaboration premiering this weekend. All have been my guests before, but never all at once! Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM/Artxfm.com at 10am each Thursday to hear artists talk about their work on LVA's Artebella On The Radio.

Trained at The Australian Ballet School and having enjoyed a thrilling and fulfilling career with The Australian Ballet as a Principal Artist, Robert Curran is now the Artistic Director of Louisville Ballet. Education and experience continually expanded his ability to move his own body on stage and through this, move an audience through a wide range of emotions. Beyond his dancing career he strives to continue to move people towards a satisfying encounter with dance. Robert is motivated by the form that a dancer gains from training in the traditions of classical ballet, where respect and discipline can facilitate breathtaking strength and freedom. He is also inspired by the innovation that forms the function of any artist, that being to bravely and boldly express oneself through art for the greater good of a community.

18582420_10100643027554632_8058639091742735953_n.jpg

Born and raise in Birmingham, Alabama, Brandon Ragland received his early training from Jacqueline Crenshaw Lockhart and continued his dance training at the Alabama School of Fine Arts. In 2007, he graduated from Butler University with a B.S. in Dance-Arts Administration. Since joining the Louisville Ballet in 2010, he has had the opportunity to perform leading roles in a wide range of classical and neoclassical works choreographed by Andre Prokovsky, Val CaniparoliSerge Lifar, Roger Van Fleteren, Christopher Bruce, Twyla Tharp and George BalanchineOther works include Bruce Simpson’s Swan Lake, La Slyphide, Ma Cong’s Tethered Pulse, and works by Adam Hougland, Lucas Jervies, and Alun Jones.  As an aspiring choreographer, he has created works for Louisville Ballet, Louisville Ballet Youth Ensemble, Alabama Ballet, Alabama Ballet School, AROVA Contemporary Ballet, Ballet Arkansas, Next Generation Ballet, J. Lockhart Performing Arts Institute, and Sedona Chamber Ballet.

Vinhay Keo is originally from Cambodia, where he spent the first 10 years of his childhood. He earned his BFA from the Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University and I now a graduate student at CalArts. He received the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship to study at Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art, a Great Meadows Foundation recipient, participated in workshops such as Anderson Ranch Art Center and Anne West’s writing reflection. His work has been exhibited throughout galleries in Louisville, Kentucky with a recent solo exhibition at Moremen Moloney Contemporary Gallery. 

That exhibit, Confront was one of the more important exhibits of 2017, a commentary that spoke to the chaos in American society, the worth and importance of the immigrant in that chaos, and the very core value of diversity that lies at the heart of the United States of America.

Frac/tured An abstract introspection by Meredith Harber  
September 4-29, Reception September 7, 5-7pm
McGrath Art Gallery, Bellarmine University, Wyatt Center for the Arts, Norris Place

Frac/tured serves as an abstract expression of the seemingly disjointed sense of self, both individually and as a gathered community. Through fine lines, gestural marks, and bold colors, Meredith Harber creates a chaotic moment on the canvas that intends to capture the viewer and challenges them to make sense of what is before them. While each piece may serve as a playful distraction from one’s surroundings, it is the artist’s intent that one put each thematic motif into context as it relates to them personally and how it ties into the modern world.

Shared Vision-Gayle Cerlan and Jacque Parsley

She has served on the boards of Louisville Visual Art and the Kentucky Museum of Art & Craft and has been an Adjunct Professor of Ceramics at Indiana University Southeast, Bellarmine College, and the University of Louisville. She founded Cerlan Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky (1997-2007) and established a fine arts school for all ages, ArtStudio (1997-2014). Cerlan has exhibited her ceramic art nationally and internationally and has won many awards and grants. Her work can be found in numerous public collections.

Jacque Parsley Using the flotsam and jetsam of everyday life, including a myriad of found objects, artifacts, ephemera, and vintage printed matter, I present an iconography that creates a dialogue between the permanent and the transient.

As Kurt Schwitters said, “The waste of the world becomes my art”.

As a child I embroidered, wove potholders, collected charms and played with paperdolls.  The influence of the fond memories have been integrated into my art by means of collage, assemblage and embellishment. Each work reflects a partly told tale, a moment in time that gives a nostalgic visual narrative of memories that have been recycled, and a past that has been reinterpreted.

Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular - October 9-November 4, 2018
Iroquois Amphitheater  1080 Amphitheatre Road

Travis & Matty are looking to recruit more Louisville artists to work on this project. With over 5,000 professionally carved jack-o-lanterns including well over 100 masterpieces lighting nearly a one-third-mile trail. Grouped in themed scenes and set to music, this year’s show, “A Night at the Library”, is a celebration of the Smithsonian’s 50th anniversary with vignettes highlighting imagery from literature, pop culture, history, arts and cinema. Proceeds from the event benefit the Louisville Parks Foundation. Gates open at 6 p.m. Trail opens at dusk (near 7:30 p.m.). Concessions available.

We were playing Aretha Franklin in the first place, but were saddened to receive the news while listening to the first of her songs that she had passed away earlier that morning. We played three of her songs on this broadcast.
