LVA's Artebella On The Radio 10.4.18


Casey McKinney joined us October 4 on LVA's Artebella On The Radio to discuss his current exhibit, When Elements Collide, at Mellwood Art Center’s Pigment Gallery. Casey is also a sculptor and muralist and you will see examples of both at Mellwood. Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM/Artxfm.com at 10am each Thursday to listen to artists talk about their work.

Because the host forgot to start the archive recording, the recording picks up about 20 minutes into the hours. Sorry Casey.

Chuck Swanson is an artist, primarily a painter, but he is also one of the pioneer gallerists in Louisville, having opened a gallery on Bardstown Road in 1982 and then in 1998 on East Market Street in what would eventually become the celebrated NuLu neighborhood. For the record, Swanson opened the space near Market and Clay well ahead of the rechristening of the area, so he must be counted as one of the reasons why the once-neglected and depressed environs became a hot spot for redevelopment.


Ewa Perz has paintings on display in Revelry Gallery Boutique, Tim Faulkner’s Gallery, European Splendor, Anne Tower Gallery (Lexington), Art on the Levee (Cincinnati), and Galerie Municipale (France). Her paintings have been featured in galleries in US, as well as Mexico, and France. Perz’s one-person show, Water Strokes, was at Revelry Gallery in November 2017. In May 2018, she will be the first artist to exhibit in the new AC Hotel when it opens in the NuLu neighborhood in Louisville.
