On the August 30 LVA's Artebella On The Radio we spoke with three women artists who are opening exhibits on September First Friday: Jacque Parsley, Gayle Cerlan, & Meredith Harber. Tune in each Thursday at 10am to WXOX 97.1 FM/Artxfm.com to hear Keith Waits talk to local artists.

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
September 7-30, Reception September 7, 6-9pm
Craft(s) Gallery & Mercantile, 572 South 4th Street, Louisville

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.

LVA's Artebella On The Radio 4.5.18

Chuck Swanson & Ewa Perz are two of the featured artists for the 2018 Art[squared] sale to benefit LVA's Children's Fine Art Classes. We talked with them on the April 5 LVA's Artebella On The Radio. Tune in each Thursday at 10am on WXOX 97.1 /

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.
