Rrucha Bapat and Vinayak Ashtekar

Our show begins with a visit to the home of farmer, weaver, and photographer Dobree Adams. She and her husband, writer and publisher Jonathan Greene, have a beautiful place nestled next to the Kentucky River, where Dobree raises her own sheep to make her woven creations. She will explain the process and inspiration that goes into both her woven art and photography.

Next, Mixed Media travels to a spot near Murray, KY to learn more about the work of stone mason Russell Dawson. Dawson creates fireplaces, patios, walls, benches, and custom homes, producing functional art that reveals the natural beauty of his medium of choice: sandstone. These works aren’t your typical stone and mortar. His artistic endeavors can take him years to accomplish, but once you see his creations, you’ll understand why.

Finally, we’ll meet Michael Frasca, a self-taught potter from Mercer County who manipulates forms and glazes to make his ceramic creations look as if they’re in motion. He makes everything from small pots to massive public sculptures, bringing to life a vast array of shapes, sizes, and colors.

Our first musical guests, singer Rrucha Bapat and tabla drummer Vinayak Ashtekar, will perform traditional music from Northern India. Rrucha grew up in Bombay and began her studies in Indian classical music at the age of 7, while Vinayak, a student of philosophy, has studied the tabla, a traditional Indian percussion instrument, privately for several years. We’ll close with music from Louisville singer-songwriter John Mann and his band. They will perform the song “No Lost Cause,” featured on the album Bourbon Holiday.
