Glema Mahr Exhibits 30 Years of Creative Excellence in Kentucky
Madisonville and Bowling Green are hosting "Uncommon Wealth," a traveling exhibit of work by Kentucky Artists who have received the Kentucky Arts Council Al Smith Individual Artist Fellowship over its 30 year history. Brad Downall, Director of the Glema Center at Madisonville Community College, speaks with Kate about the exhibit on Sounds Good.
Downall walks through the Glema Center's gallery to describe a few of his favorite works from the upcoming "Uncommon Wealth" show that will run for nearly the whole month of February. The show will be displaying works that are both realistic and abstract in nature, but all are from artists based in Kentucky.
"There are 62 artists that are featured in the "Uncommon Wealth" exhibit... When you walk in the front doors, these two pieces of artwork greet you. One is by Phyllis Alvic who used to be a Murray artist, and she is still producing absolutely beautiful things."
"Uncommon Wealth" is on display through February 27, 2014. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A public reception will be held Satruday, February 1 at 6:30 p.m. at the Glema Mahr Center for the Arts, in Madisonville Community College, 2000 College Drive.
