Sparking Creativity         Back                              

    "If the mind was a place, it would be a garden"

                             October 20 - November 22, 2003

Lexington Arboretum - University of Kentucky, Alumni Drive, Lexington Kentucky

This exhibition is a creative collaboration between the Museum and Arboretum and is an opportunity to show the work of some of the state's finest crafts people in a non-traditional venue. The artists were selected on the basis of the quality of their work and a belief that the work would have a sympathetic relationship to the mission of the arboretum by reflecting the use of natural materials or subject matter in its execution.

Participating artists: Wayne Bates, Dave Caudill, Golman Crabtree, Mary Craik, Justine Dennis, Jack Fifield, Linda Fifield, Susan Goldstein, Louise Halsey, Lewis Haynes, Craig Kaviar, Marianna McDonald, Joe Molinaro, Darcelle Pechter, Susan Pfeiffer, Chris Ramsey, Robin Reed, Wyman Rice, Peter Rockwell, Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, Dennis Shaffner and John Whitesell.

Dave Caudill is the Arboretum's 2003 Visiting Artist.  His work titled, "Spirit Rising" is installed at the Arboretum entrance, and he most recently created and installed an integrated sculpture and handrail system for UK's Singletary Center for the Arts. A former UK student, he was born in Corbin and maintains his home and studio in Louisville.
