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.

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.

Daniel Pfalzgraf is an occasional artist and full-time curator who’s been working with galleries and museums since — as he elegantly describes it — the turn of the century. With a degree in Sculpture and Drawing, as well as an affection for soccer, marketing, and Banksy, he’s definitely the Center’s resident Renaissance man. However, and when his mind isn’t on art or soccer, it’s often filled with thoughts of wolves, conspiracy theories, or playing an endless loop of the opening riff from Smoke on the Water. So, yes. He’s also a little bit different.                  Dpfalzgraf.com

Bryan K. Holden was born in Louisville, Kentucky and has lived and worked there his entire life. Holden studied under the guidance and influence of his father, where he learned about conceptual thought, creativity, intricacy and superior craftsmanship. He continues his studies to this day, on his own.

His work is continuously evolving and refining and has changed monumentally since 2012, when he started his Deconstruction series of work. Stretched across a vast range of media, Holden creates contemporary, inventive and complex two and three-dimensional conceptual work. His Deconstruction series of work serves as the foundation for an ongoing investigation of human behavior and how it affects people and those around them. Often using repurposed, common and uncommon collected materials related to the particular behavior he is addressing.

Holden’s works are in the public collections of Humana Health Care, Brown-Forman Corporation, The Helen Keller Foundation, The City of Louisville, National Public Radio, The University of Louisville and many others. Also, Bryan’s work can be found in private collections throughout the United States, as well as in Dubai, Germany, Italy, Canada, Sweden and the UK.

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.
