Mary Ann Fisher with Chip Polston

This week’s Mixed Media showcases the talents of fiber artist Mary Craik, a 78-year-old retired university professor with a doctorate in educational psychology. She is a self-trained painter and fiber artist who started painting in 1997 and working with fabric in 1998. Mary makes acrylic paintings on silk, large quilts, contemporary wall hangings, banners, and wearable art.

Chip also presents a salute to the Louisville Ballet as it celebrates its 50th anniversary. Founded in 1952 as a civic ballet company that employed guest artistic directors and choreographers on a production-by-production basis, the Louisville Ballet got its first full-time artistic director in 1965. Ten years later, under the direction of Richard and Cristina Munro, the company “turned pro” by hiring an ensemble troupe of eight dancers. The organization now reaches an audience of more than 100,000 people each year and is regarded as one of America’s leading regional ballet companies.

Throughout the program, Louisville R&B singer Mary Ann Fisher and her band entertain with tunes from her recent release, Songbird of the South. Fisher, 80 years young herself, is best known for her stint as one of the Raelettes backing up Ray Charles from 1955 to 1958.
