The River: Portland Art & Heritage Fair Exhibiton

cropped-Wordpress-Header-1.png

The 5th Annual PAHF Juried Exhibition is a juried exhibition and will be on view at the Marine Hospital in Portland,  Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 11am–5pm. The exhibition is part of the Portland Art & Heritage Fair and a production of Portland, Now!


Disappear into a historic neighborhood nearly erased by the floods of time….
Where things aren’t always what they seem!

Saturday, September 29th
11am to 5pm   -  rain or shine

Forget about Bermuda, have you witnessed the Portland Triangle?! Formed by three of our most historic buildings – The US Marine Hospital, The Portland Museum and The Dolfinger School – our triangle hasn’t been prominently featured in any sappy 80s Beach Boys hits, probably only because “Portland” doesn’t rhyme with “come on pretty mama”.

Enough talk about tropical contact highs, it’s time to announce the Fifth Annual Portland Art & Heritage Fair (PAHF)! Set your calendars for Saturday, September 29th as we once again invite you to come celebrate the creativity and the history of our neighborhood with us.

We’ll be announcing details that you’ll wanna catch a glimpse of, as the date approaches. Rest assured PAHF 2018 will put a dreamy look in the eye of your entire family! For now, check out our mysterious new poster and start planning where you want to go (to get away from it all) in a couple months!

Packed full of history, heritage and ephemera from the walls of Portland’s historic buildings – the Portland Museum will engage you with archeology, art and history. You’ll learn something and you’ll be having so much fun you won’t even know it

Artists roam the halls of the Dolfinger Building. Their work is tucked into every nook and cranny of this building that was once a school.

Visiting Artist Open House - Miller / Weeks

  • Lenihan Sotheby's International Realty (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
Lenihan Sotheby_2018.jpg

Lenihan Sotheby’s International Realty presents an exhibition of new work by Douglas Miller and Karen Weeks. Presented by: First Financial Bank. In affiliation with Louisville Visual Art.

Douglas Miller is a professional artist whose drawings have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the US. Additionally, Douglas does freelance illustrations as well as private and corporate commissions. Recently, he received the prestigious Al Smith Fellowship for Visual Arts from the Kentucky Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. His artwork is in the collection of the Evansville Museum of Arts and Science, the University of Louisville, the Speed School of Engineering, and numerous private collections throughout the world. His work has appeared in Fine Art Connoisseur, American Artist: Drawing magazines, Manifest Gallery Drawing Annuals and has been featured on NPR First Watch. In 2018, Douglas received his MFA from the University of Louisville.

Karen Weeks is primarily a printmaker, utilizing the letterpress printing machine to generate her imagery. Her focus on pattern and repetition is reflected in her use of this outmoded technology built for creating multiples of the same image. Creating exact replicas, though, is not her aim; instead through exploring the variations within limitations, she finds a more compelling goal. After generating these images and color fields, she later collages them into unique pieces of artwork. Karen finds inspiration from nature and enjoys meditating on the repetitious systems of nature from which all patterns evolve; evoking in her imagery the cross section of technology and the natural world.

Bill Daniel book release show: "Tri-X-Noise"
One evening only: Wednesday, June 6, 6-9 PM
Louisville Visual Art
1538 Lytle St., 40203
http://www.billdaniel.net/touring/

Bill Daniel is back on the road with a pop-up photo show comprised of 30 years of 35mm photographs beginning with the early '80s punk scene in Texas. Daniel has continued to document various subcultures using the same camera, lens, flash and Kodak Tri-X film for over 30 years. This exhibit, all non-digital darkroom prints, charts a path starting with punk shows in Texas and crawls through the '90s graffiti scene in San Francisco, freight-hopping scenarios, art openings in Los Angeles, house shows in Louisiana, generator shows on the Monongahela River, etc., all seen through Daniel's unique spelunker flash-lit vision.

Bill Daniel was a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Arts and is an American experimental documentary film artist, photographer, film editor, and cinematographer. He is also an installation artist, curator and former zine publisher. His full-length film, "Who is Bozo Texino?," about the tradition of hobo and railworker boxcar graffiti, was completed in 2005 and has screened extensively throughout the United States and Europe.

art [squared]

This thrilling and vital fundraising event is held annually in early spring. More than 200 artists create 12" x 12" works of art for the  art[squared]  exhibition & sale, which will be available for $125 each. All artists will remain anonymous until the squares are purchased - once a piece is sold, the artist's name will be revealed. Proceeds from  art[squared]  support  Children's Fine Art Classes (CFAC) .  How art[squared] works...  More than 200 paintings line the walls of the LVA Gallery. Each piece is priced at $125 and signed on the back, leaving the front anonymous. The beauty of an anonymous exhibition is viewers will be able to respond to the artwork on its merits alone, without prejudice or preference.  The exhibition is unseen by the public until the doors open. Guests have 30 minutes to browse the artwork and seek out their favorites. All works will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. As each piece is sold, the buyer learns the identity of the artist, and a placard with the selling artist's name will replace the artwork on the wall.  All proceeds benefit CFAC, which educates more than 1,000 artistically talented and visually driven children annually in the Greater Louisville area. This provides students with scholarships and helps offset instructor and supply costs in all 12 participating Kentuckiana counties.  Buy tickets  at this link  online.

"Tessile Ora" Exhibition

The Middle of the 20th century in America brought an expansion of mediums and techniques in what we traditionally categorized as “Fine Art.” Such redefinition of craft mediums helped expand our understanding of the act of creativity. The current generation of textile artists whose work we can now find in the art gallery take craft techniques and reconfigure them into work that rivals painting and printmaking in its expressiveness, while maintaining the supple textures of the world of fiber art.

These three artists approach the use of textiles in much the same way other artistsapproach paint. Elmer Lucille Allen uses the Shibori dying technique to create geometric patterns evocative of primitive tribal motifs. Denise Furnish reclaims discarded quilts to use as the basis of abstract paintings of bold color and textural complexity. Vallorie Henderson creates her material at a more fundamental level, geometrically abstracted landscapes made from hand-dyed and hand-felted wool and silk organza with both machine and hand stitching.

"Untitled ELA #4 " by Elmer Lucille Allen (right)

Elmer Lucille Allen, a clay and fiber artist was born in Louisville and in 1953 graduated from Spalding University (then Nazareth College) with a chemistry degree – one of the country’s first African-American female chemists. In 1966 she became the first African American chemist at the Brown-Forman Company in Louisville. Allen was one of three women employed at the company, where she held the title of senior analytical chemist. She retired in 1997 and returned to college at the University of Louisville earninga MAin creative arts with a major in ceramics in 2002. Her work can be viewed in the main stairwell of Metro Hall.

In the second floor hallway, you can find the work of Denise Furnish. Denise received her MA in Fine Arts Fiber from the University of Louisville in 2010, and a BFA from that same institution in 2008, having also studied at the Louisville School of Art and the University of Kentucky, where she earned her BA in Fine Arts. She has been recognized with awards and grants from the Kentucky Foundation for Women, the Kentucky Arts Council, has exhibited in Mainz, Germany, and twice received the Juror’s Choice Award of Excellence in the annual Artist as Quiltmaker exhibit in Oberlin, Ohio. "A quilt is shelter, adornment, and gift. A quilt is a story–a text that reveals a time in history, a vernacular. I am aware of its significance as both art history and women’s history." she says in her artist statement.

"Amber Waves of Grain" by   Vallories   Henderson

"Amber Waves of Grain" by Vallories Henderson

Raised in Somerset, Vallorie Henderson is proud of her rural Kentucky roots. “I've lived and worked in both large and small communities in and outside of the United States. My Kentucky heritage has always provided me with a strong sense of self and the confidence to approach life with enthusiasm and curiosity.” Vallorie said of herself recently. “I will always call Kentucky my home.” That heritage provided early exposure to multiple traditional crafts. She is an experienced river cane basket maker in the Eastern Cherokee tradition as well as an award-winning quilter. Her work can be found in the 4th-floor hallway of Metro Hall.  “My creative process stems from a belief in perfection and symmetry but with the knowledge that these qualities often hide within imperfection and asymmetry. I want to bring a love of exploring, a minimalist sensibility, and a somewhat organic approach to making. For this reason, I strive to understand the capacities of my chosen materials, wool and silk, to perform both physically and poetically." she says about her work.

The exhibition is on view at Louisville Metro Hall during their business hours:

  • Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 9AM - 5PM
  • Saturday: 12AM–5PM
  • Sunday: Closed

Baseball Flags: New Work by Patrick Donley

  • Lenihan Sotheby's International Realty (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us for hors d’oeuvres, music, cocktails, and new artwork from Louisville artist, Patrick Donley. Patrick Donley is a longtime member of the Louisville art community who has made his reputation with his colorful, collage-based abstract paintings, compositions composed of spherical objects applied with an insistent mark-making technique. His new work explores the global connection with the game of baseball with flags serving as the visual starting point. 


"This series began as an excuse to use the imagery of America’s Game in my art. For years, I have been fascinated by the gritty, rugged, glorious, and often tarnished visual lexicon of baseball, a game full of heroes, heroines, legends, myths, successes and failures. It fascinates me that although Soccer is the 'World’s' game, Baseball has 'the World Series', and now, for me, that phrase finally makes a little more sense."

The View from Back Here: snapshots and memories from the backside of the track.

  • ReSurfaced Liberty Build (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Opening Reception: October 7th, 6:30pm

The Backside Learning Center, Louisville Visual Art, and Louisville Story Program invite the public to join them at the ReSurfaced Liberty Build on Friday, Oct. 7 beginning at 6:30 p.m. for the opening of The View from Back Here: snapshots and memories from the backside of the track. 

This is the culminating exhibit of a summer photography and oral history program for youth and young adults in the backside community who expressed interest in the documentary disciplines. Guided by instructors from LSP and LVA and made possible with a grant from UPS, they learned the fundamentals of photography and were trained in the objectives and techniques of taking oral history. They photographed many aspects of daily life on the track and conducted personal interviews with community and family members. Some of the participants are the children of equine workers on the backside of Churchill Downs, others work on the backside themselves. Together they have captured a brief, vibrant glimpse into the lives and stories lived every day on the backside of the track. The exhibit will run throughout the month of October, Thursdays and Fridays 5-10 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 10 p.m.

Visiting Artist Open House with Britany Baker

  • Lenihan Sotheby's International Realty (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us for hors d’oeuvres, music, cocktails, and recent artwork from Louisville artist, Britany Baker.

“I strive to make art that encourages introspection, contemplation, and pareidolia, that is fractal and meditative the way nature is. I want to make art that changes and grows with you — something you can live with for the rest of your life. I want you to see something new in it each time you sit with it — a Rorschach test that reflects the viewer in whatever state they’re in. I want you to remember it when you’re away from it, and realize you missed it when you see it again. I want you to stop, and say to yourself, ‘Wait! What am I seeing here?’ and then catch yourself getting lost in it, thereby easing yourself into a different frame of mind.”

Learn more about Britany Baker and her work at britanybaker.com.

To experience life through the eyes of a dancer is a rare treat. Wendy Whelan’s photography exhibition encompasses uncommon sights and vantage points that will be entirely new to most viewers. Using the mobile platform Instagram (@WendyW), Ms. Whelan captures moments from the secret side of the dance world not usually revealed to the public from her own unique perspective. The images within this exhibition were initially the inspiration for a larger gallery of photography taken by Ms. Whelan as well as a number of other well-known dancers in the field. The original exhibition of dancer photography, Shooting Stars, which was on view at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Blake’s Barn during the summer of 2013 was curated by Norton Owen, Jacob’s Pillow’s Director of Preservation. As she continues to develop her creative eye for photography, Wendy Whelan shares her artistry on a day-to-day basis with her 17,000+ followers on Instagram.

“I like to show the secret side of our world that people don’t usually get to see. I fell in-love with dance when I could see the inside workings of it… the backstage. I find, being a dancer, all of the work and your creativity and your focus goes to a product that in the end disappears; and by taking a photograph, you get to keep it.” – Wendy Whelan
