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.

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

Gayle Cerlan has been an active member of the Kentucky arts community through her involvement as the creator and director of the Cityworks exhibition (1997-1998), and as curator of the DinnerWorks exhibition (1994-1997). 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.

How Would History Play in Your Neighborhood?

CFAC instructor Julia had King Elementary 4th & 5th-grade students look at Romare Bearden's collage paintings, then discussed how to make a landscape of their home. They talked about historical figures and heroes, and what those heroes would be wearing and doing if they lived in their neighborhood. This is mainly a collage project but students were allowed to expand into other materials once they covered the whole page.
