Our first guest on this edition of Mixed Media is Louisville artist, writer, and actor Wanda Johnson-Hall. Believing that the power of words can help develop the creative talents of others, Wanda helps educate emerging writers in the processes of today’s publishing market. She has published two volumes of poetry, You Can Be and I Am Not a Poet, completed her autobiography, Telling the Truth and Shaming the Devil, in 2003, and has written a monthly column for Today’s Woman magazine for seven years. She also acts professionally, serves on the board of directors of the Louisville Arts Council, and oversees operations at Goose Creek Publishing Inc., a small press in Louisville.

Next, we tour a retrospective exhibit of the work of Louise Calvin, who taught for many years as an art professor at Transylvania University in Lexington. After her death in 2002, a group of former students came together to mount the exhibit, much of which focuses on Calvin’s exploration of wood as a primary medium. Former Transylvania student Donna Glassford, featured in the segment, continues to help promote her mentor’s work.

After that, we’ll meet Simpsonville photographer Bruce McElya, whose primary subject matter includes the secluded scenes of the Colorado River, which flows through the Grand Canyon. McElya holds the record for his seven solo raft journeys down this majestic natural treasure. His black and white photographs bring to life the striking textures and elements of the American wilderness.

Our musical guests include singer-songwriter Janis Pruitt and guitarist Richard Goering. Janis, whose influences range from early rock to bluegrass, opens the program with a performance of her song “I Remember Amsterdam” a selection from her first full-length album, Streets of Rome. Guitarist Richard Goering returns to the Mixed Media set, again accompanied by bassist Nick Greenberg, to perform “The Theme to Black Orpheus.”
