Louisville, KY --
The Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation is proud to present the
exhibition Garden Party in the
Downstairs Gallery. The exhibition will feature a variety of
handcrafted works of art that can enhance the flora and fauna in a
garden, or that can be incorporated into interiors such as sunrooms or
porches where a garden atmosphere is desired.
“In this exhibition we will include a variety of special
pieces by artists from across Kentucky, such as decorative sculpture,
birdhouses, furniture, pottery, fountains and so forth,” says
Associate Curator Mary Ellen Furlong.
Artists have been invited to create special pieces for this
exhibition, and to let their imaginations run free.
As a result, Garden Party will feature functional and whimsical
garden-related objects, from large high-end items to small accent
artists include thus far Larry Beisler, Blue Moon, Dave Caudill, Amy
Elswick, Wyatt L. Gragg, Frances Kratzok, Kurt Ludwig, Joe McGee,
Lewis Meyer, Miller’s Metal Works (Larry Miller and Larry R. Rowe
II), Brian Newton, Scott Scarboro, Erika Strecker and Yardbirds.
Garden Party will be on view in the Downstairs Gallery at the
Kentucky Art and Craft Gallery from March 9 – May 25, 2002, with an
opening reception scheduled for March 13, 2002 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Admission is free. For more information about the exhibition, contact the
