The first segment on this episode of Mixed Media features Bowling Green mixed media sculptor Alice Ann Noel. Alice main focus involves three-dimensional, collage-like sculptures that incorporate a wide variety of materials collected over the years. She hopes that each piece sparks the curiosity of the viewer, bringing a better understanding of her various themes through a tactile interface.

Next, we’ll visit the Brown-Forman Company in Louisville, an organization committed to supporting the arts through its extensive painting and sculpture collection. The collection, exhibited both in public areas and in private offices, spans the late 19th century to the present, representing a wide range of subject matter and style, with an emphasis on the work of Kentucky artists. Surrounding the workplace with thought-provoking works of art, the company hopes to inspire its visitors and employees.

Paul Fields has these words to say about his work: “I suspect most people dream of traveling far more than they ever do. But in a strange sense, each time a piece of mine embarks upon a new journey, so too do I feel myself transcending the bounds of my bluegrass home. Even if I wish to leave, I don’t believe I ever could.” Since his first public show at the Art Center in Louisville in 1968, Paul has presented his sculptures in galleries from New Orleans to Carrara, Italy. He works primarily with stone, and his style ranges from the functional to the abstract. Among his local commissions are pieces on display at Bernheim Forest and the Louisville Zoo.

Our first musical guest is the Lexington group, the Big Maracas. Their vibrant Latin sounds have been entertaining audiences in Central Kentucky for years. The will start off the show with their signature upbeat salsa rhythms. And to close the show, we’ll hear Ashland’s Rob McNurlin performing his unique brand of country music with his band The Beatnik Cowboys. Rob, an experienced and talented musician and songwriter, says that his main influences include Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Hank Williams, early rock ’n’ roll, and Johnny Cash.
