Hannah has presented at the Idea Festival, curated performances for the Festival of Faiths, partnered with The Louisville Ballet for their Choreographer’s Showcase, and exhibited her visual art and poetry at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft and 1619 Flux. Her poem “Spaces” was selected by the National Academy of Medicine for a national art exhibit about health equity. Hannah was selected as a 2017 Hadley Creative by the Community Foundation of Louisville and Creative Capital and her work has been honored by the Kentucky Alliance of Against Racist and Political Repression. In July of 2017, Hannah Drake was featured on the Tom Joyner Morning Show with Jacque Reid to discuss her movement, “Do Not Move Off The Sidewalk.” In February 2019, Hannah was selected by the Muhammad Ali Center to be a Daughter of Greatness which features prominent women engaged in social philanthropy, activism, and pursuits of justice. Hannah’s message is thought-provoking and at times challenging, but Hannah believes that it is in the uncomfortable spaces that change can take place. “My sole purpose in speaking and writing is not that I entertain you. I am trying to shake a nation.”

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

Rachael Banks (b. Louisville, KY) is an Assistant Professor of Photography at Northern Kentucky University and is based in Covington, KY. She received an MFA in photography from Texas Woman's University (Denton, TX). Her work has been shown regionally, nationally, and internationally.

LVA's Artebella On The Radio: October 25, 2018

Sculptor Bryan Holden and Printmaker Elizabeth Foley came in the studio Thursday morning for the first of a 2-part preview of Open Studio Weekend, which takes place Nov 3 & 4. tune in at 10am to WXOX 97.1.Artxfm.com for LVA's Artebella On the Radio.

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.

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.

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.

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.
