LVA's Artebella On The Radio June 20, 2019


Ewing Fahey, Caren Cunningham, Gloria Wachtel, Emily Schuhmann joined Keith Waits in the studio this week to talk about the 150th celebration for renowned Louisville-born sculptor Enid Yandell and the two upcoming exhibits of the Enid Sculptors Group. Yandell was a suffragette so we heard songs from the suffragette movement recorded by Elizabeth Knight in 1959. Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM, or stream on Artxfm.com Thursday at 10am.

Keith Waits will be on vacation for the next two weeks. LVA’s Artebella On The Radio will return on July 11.

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.
