LVA's Artebella On The Radio: September 5, 2019

69894526_10156246444666831_2955664216704417792_n.jpg

Whitney and Waller Austin were on the show this week talking about the upcoming WhitneyStrong Foundation event and how making art can play a role in addressing gun violence. Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM, or stream on Artxfm.com Thursday at 10am to hear artists talk about their work and social acvtivism on LVA's Artebella On The Radio with Keith Waits.

Waller Austin is an interdisciplinary artist who relies heavily on humor to engage viewers with a myriad of subversive themes, juxtaposing the authentic with the apocryphal. The reactionary nature of his work has compelled him to explore concepts of originality and memisis, post-colonial colloquialisms, and mythologized identities of self and the other.

Austin studied painting and art history at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned a Master of Fine Art degree from Sam Fox School of Art and Architecture at Washington University in St. Louis. Austin currently lives in Louisville, Kentucky with his wife, Whitney and their two children, where he is an adjunct art instructor at Jefferson Community and Technical College.

Austin had prepared a silly art exhibition to open at the Tim Faulkner Gallery on September 21st, but after his wife survived being shot 12 times as she walked into work in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 6th, Waller was moved to create a much different installation in response to the incident.

Whitney Austin is a Louisville native who studied Entrepreneurship and Psychology at the University of Louisville. With her husband Waller she is the founder of Whitney/Strong

“For nearly a year, Whitney/Strong has worked tirelessly to create relationships, both on the local and national stages that will help us on the road to ending gun violence. In celebration of our efforts, we are excited to announce our largest event yet, A Night for Life. It will provide an in-depth overview of the majority-supported solutions we've selected to help end the epidemic of gun violence in our country.”

LVA's Artebella On The Radio August 29, 2019

Flame Run Gallery has co-ordinated an exhibit of works by some of the many assistants of Stephen Powell. Flame Run Director Brook F. White, Jr. is one of them, and he will be in the WXOX studios to talk about the exhibit this Thursday. Tune in to LVA's Artebella On The Radio at 10am on WXOX 97.1 FM, or stream on Artxfm.com.

ms21-300-400x346.jpeg

Brook Forrest White, Jr. is a glass artist and the Director of Flame Run Glass Studio at 815 West Market Street.

A native of Owensboro, Kentucky, Brook grew up playing baseball, soccer and the drums.  He was captain of his high school soccer team and went to Centre College in Danville, Kentucky to continue playing soccer at the collegiate level, where he was a four-year letterman.

Brook was pursuing a government degree when he had to take an art class to fulfill a general requirement at Centre College. That class was Hot Glass I and was taught by internationally renowned glass artist Stephen Rolfe Powell. In the glassblowing studio, Brook found an outlet for his passion, intensity, athleticism and creativity.

Brook went on to work many years for Powell. Those apprenticeship years would prove to be invaluable to Brook as he continued his fascination with hot glass. Brook credits his nearly decade of time spent with Powell as the inspiration he needed to start his own studio.

LEGACY: THE ASSISTANTS OF STEPHEN ROLFE POWELL

SEPTEMBER 6 - OCTOBER 25, 2019

The Godfather of Kentucky glass, Stephen Rolfe Powell, left behind a legacy in the lives he touched.  Among those he strongly influenced, were his assistants over the years. 

Flame Run has co-ordinated an exhibit of works by some of the many assistants, including:  Brook F. White, Jr., Thomas Spake, Nate Watson, Adam Haigh, Matthew Cummings, Jonathan Capps, DH McNabb, Che Rhodes, Paul Nelson, Sam Spees, Patrick Martin & Paul Hugues
