The Lexington Art Leagues Loudoun House galleries have traditionally showcased artwork on the walls and on pedestals near the walls, but an innovative exhibit in December 2004 turned the galleries themselves into a work of art. We begin this edition of Mixed Media with a look at how artists Kurt Gohde, Michael Goodlett, Kazuko Matsumoto, and Zoé Strecker transformed the halls, walls, floors, and ceilings of the historic house in an installation endeavor called Immersions: Informing the Present Moment. One of the galleries focused on the history of the historic Castlewood neighborhood where Loudoun is located.
While in Lexington, we also visit the Lexington Arts and Cultural Councils LexArts Weekend. Held in February 2005, the weekend of activities showcased the wide variety of arts opportunities available in Lexington. Jim Clark, CEO of the LACC, explains the collaborative effort behind it and takes us behind the scenes at the Kentucky Ballet Theatre, the Lexicon Project, and the Bluegrass Printmakers Cooperative. A video montage of other events captures the flavor of LexArts Weekend.
In the studio, this edition features the soothing sounds of classical pianist Denine LeBlanc, an instructor of piano at the University of Louisville School of Music and the arts and humanities teacher at Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Elementary School in Louisville. She recently released her debut solo recording, The Sun Shines Bright, which features music written by Kentucky-based composers.
