Sparkling Art

She works alone, all night long. But the products of her labors sparkle in the sunlight: jewel-like bottles and other delicate works in glass. Visit the nocturnal world of Elizabethtown’s Carmen Ray Coyle (who keeps those hours because there’s little chance of interruption or distraction) in this segment for night owls and admirers of artistry.

Sculpting History

Ed Hamilton

In this profile, sculptor Ed Hamilton talks about growing up in a Louisville neighborhood alive with theaters and other sources of visual stimulation for a budding artist. When we visited, he was at work on a statue commissioned for the African-American Civil War Memorial in Washington, DC.

Hamilton’s other works include a nine-foot bronze statue of Booker T. Washington at Hampton University in Virginia, a 12-foot bronze statue of boxer Joe Louis in Detroit, and the Amistad Memorial in New Haven, CT.

For an update on Hamilton and the Civil War memorial, see Kentucky Life Program 721.

Piece by Piece

traditional quilting

The Kentucky State Fair gives traditional craftspeople a chance to see one another’s work and to compare notes about their art. Here, a group of women who hand-sew quilts demonstrate their craft and talk about the importance of passing it on to the next generation.

Producer: Gale Worth

Natural Bridges

arches and falls in McCreary County

The Eastern Kentucky area around Natural Bridge State Resort Park and the Red River Gorge is known as “the land of the arches.” In its heart is McCreary County, which lies entirely within the Daniel Boone National Forest and is the 120th and (so far) last county formed in Kentucky.

In this segment, host Byron Crawford takes in the breathtaking wintertime beauty of the region. Also on his itinerary is Yahoo Falls.
